Bought as a Christmas present
but I ended up reading it myself
15 November 2018
An incredible story, not one I’d usually pick up to be honest, but I bought it for my parents as a gift and got sucked in from the first couple of pages, ended up not being able to put it down and read it in about four evenings. I have no experience of war, or fighting, or being in the forces, and this really did open my eyes to the harsh reality, but more than that, the author is positive and writes with Irish humour – I can only imagine these personality traits allowed him to face the daily battles on and off the battlefield and get him to where he is now on civvy street.
This is a fantastic read!
How did I smile and cry at the same time?

This an amazing read for anyone. You don’t need to be interested in the military for this to be inspirational. It’s full of heart, endeavour and human strength and frailty. The idea that anything can be overcome is in every line, with a genuine, heartfelt belief.
Not many people could be so open and vulnerable, then go on to show the strength it takes to triumph over such adversity. You will smile, whilst crying and as I did, start over and read it all again. If you’re feeling challenged in your life? There is hope and advice here.
Straight talk from an ex-solider.
Just what so many people actually need!

Straight talk from an ex-solider. This book will be a lifeline to so many. While it’s aimed at helping people quit drugs…and realistically we’re talking here about people who have not yet hit their total rock bottom…I believe the ideas, strategies and concepts included in this gem of a book are relevant and pertinent to people with all kinds of addictions. It’s a very unique book and I’m glad I read it as part of my research on addiction and trauma. I hope it does reach the right people and help them see there is a better way
A really brilliant book, easy to read

A bare bones and sometimes moving account of the author’s road to, during and beating addiction. I believe this book would help anyone with any type of addiction.
A really brilliant book, easy to read, uncomplicated and relatable.
It’s easy to change bands & switch to suit any occasion.
