Summary:

From the scion of Hollywood royalty--son of Michael Douglas, grandson of Kirk Douglas--a moving, often shocking, ultimately inspiring memoir detailing his struggle to regain his dignity, humanity, and place in society after many years of drug abuse and almost eight years in prison.

Cameron Douglas is born into wealth, privilege, and comfort. His parents are glamorous jet-setters, his father a superstar, his mother a beautiful socialite, his grandfather a legend. On the surface, his life seems golden. But by the age of thirty, he has taken a hellish dive: he's become a drug addict, a thief, and--after a DEA drug bust--a convicted drug dealer sentenced to five years in prison, with another five years added to his sentence while incarcerated. Eventually he will spend two years in solitary, where he manages, nonetheless, to hold fast to the brutal ethos of prison survival . . . until: he begins to reverse his savage transformation, to understand the psychological turmoil that has tormented him for years, and to prepare for what will be a profoundly challenging, but eventually deeply satisfying and successful, reentry into society at large.

Sparing no one in his sphere--least of all himself--Cameron Douglas gives us a raw and unstintingly honest recounting of his harrowing, remarkable, and, in the end, inspiring life story.

    Enjoyed this. Some areas of entitlement and self-pity, acknowledged by author and narrator, but nonetheless caused me to disconnect a bit. I’m giving up smoking and I thought his entrenched drug issues and how he is now clean would offer some motivation without turning to self-help books. Enjoying this enough to listen to when walking and at night in bed.

    Loved this book !!! Wow his bravery and honesty is amazing. His journey is just heartbreaking and I can only hope for him to have a long and wonderful life after what he has been thru. His writing skills amazing. I was blown away at how someone can check their pride at the door and completely reveal the good, bad and sad. Bless his heart I am a forever fan ❤️

    This is a self indulgent child reminiscing about his delinquent escapades. I had to stop listening. I'm assuming that he eventually straightens out and lives a somewhat responsible life but there isn't much to recommend this book in the first five or so hours. Baffled why it was given 5 stars. Will not rely on your recommendations in the future.
