It's an entertaining read no doubt, but unfortunately the author makes some, well, blatantly untrue claims. I appreciate that he knows alot about the effects of addiction
on those surrounding the addict
.......but that is pretty much all he knows, and it shows.
He repeatedly talks of Delirium Tremens as being a part of heroin
withdrawal, when actually DT's are associated with alcohol
withdrawal, and are deadly. He also claims Oxycontin does not create a tolerance in the user. It's a very personal, opinionated read, unfortunately, even when it comes down to what are presented as facts.
So while it is an entertaining read, remember that the author is talking from his personal perspective, and, remarkably, considering how close he was with Mewes, knows few facts about heroin addiction.
