"253 pages of sizzling self-examination, regret, hope, anger, cleansing and raw honesty...A chilling reminder of how little we truly know about the emotions and struggles churning inside the adolescents, teenagers and young adults who are awash in glory and idolized as sports heroes." --Rick Bozich, (Louisville)

"Chapman's frank assessment of the toll his addictions took on his loved ones lends his account appealing humility....It's the off-court sections that lend this sports memoir its power." --Publishers Weekly

"Readers will appreciate Chapman's candor and hard-won perspective as he shares his up-and-down story as a cautionary tale." --Booklist

"A former basketball prodigy's blunt memoir about stardom, addiction, and American culture.....Throughout, the author is raw [and] consistently candid....the most compelling and focused aspect of the book is Chapman's frankness about the toll of his battle with painkillers and the hard work required on the long road to recovery." --Kirkus Reviews
