I loved this book. It was honest when being honest probably wasn't easy. There was so much I could relate to. I recommend it to anyone who struggles with being a flawed human.

This book makes you hope and believe that life can change.... and gives us insight into how to change it.

Mishka writes well and his story is an interesting one... to a point.
The first 2/3rds of the book are great, a fascinating story off one mans war with the world, his father and himself. His childhood and drinking days are fascinating and well told.
But then he starts running. And running. And talking about running. And the book just drags. I hate to say it as I loved Mishka when introduced to him through the Doug Stanhope podcast and he has had an interesting and in places heart breaking life - but I wouldn't recommend this book. The first 2/3rds yes. But I can't bear to finish it and hear any more about long distance running (gave up 1.45hrs remaining)
hard to listen to. as it should be. do it. it's painful and beautiful and terrifying
I really enjoyed this book. I've listened to all of Mishka's kindle singles and, while this covers the same territory, it is rarely repetitive. He is brutally honest, never aims to be inspiring but manages it anyway, and is likeable despite himself. I love a memoir read my the author and his voice is just perfect for this, gravely and distinctive.
