Raw and riveting read!

An absorbing read, one that becomes unputdownable as the pace picks up.
On a few occasions throughout, David Perlmutter refers to himself as a f***ing idiot, and while it's hard to argue with that, you can't help but feel for him because of the raw humanness that shines through the narrative—not least, the humility and sense of accountability that come from owning one's shame.
And kudos to Perlmutter for not romanticising his harrowing experiences as 'character building', in the way many stories of a similar nature do.
