Touching, insightful, funny, and incredibly shocking. This is an exceptional book. To my surprise, it was absolutely engrossing and very hard to put down. It is very well written and will stay with me for a long, long time. It was so sad in many ways, but very enlightening about the Music Journalist chronicles. The subject of the book is absolutely inspirational. I highly recommend it.

Amazing story of a harsh life and the man who survives it. Fascinating! I recommend this book to anybody that had a less than perfect life, had a perfect childhood or thought you did, and were able to move on to live your life. This story could also help so many people that are struggling to believe that you can get to the other side.

Thomas Wictor. This book is amazingly awesome! I feel like I was living your life and watching through the window. The descriptions were so vivid that I could picture the downfalls and loss of everything. I am so proud of you Thomas Wictor for standing up and surviving a life that at times was nearly impossible. You are a hero and an awesome example to so many people that come from varied life that you can get out, you don't have to follow in the footsteps of those from your past, AND you can live YOUR life and be happy!

I was given this book from NetGalley and Schiffer Publishing. ( )
