this was an interesting look at a man's life, success and failure. he wrote an honest portrayal of addiction and recovery. this is a process book to be valued by those going through or helping with recovery. it's also a great book for Mets fans

Growing up I was a diehard Gooden fan. Jerseys and hats, cards, posters, any memorabilia really....I devoted so much of my time to following him. It was devastating when he lost his way, and all these years later, reading his story, is truly powerful.

Well done, but he still tends to glorify his using more than I am comfortable with in my sobriety.

Dwight bares it all, addiction, trauma, baseball stardom, and more. Interesting tidbits - he definitely didn't experience an honest side of Darryl Strawberry, he had some major baseball pitching accomplishments, trauma work truly sparked his recovery work. The book unfortunately is written rather flat and dry. There are home-run moments, but they are separated with lots of strike outs as well.
