Through Under the Influence, Zachary gives us a sacred peek into his once shattered mind, teaching us that, even against all the odds, a broken mind can not only be healed, but can go on to flourish, inspiring others along the way.
From the author: "Under the Influence is the story of my childhood. It provides an insight in to the reality of being the son of an addict, paranoid schizophrenic, chronic hoarder and drug dealer.
"For as long as I knew him, my dad dealt. Every day, a procession of desperate, malnourished and volatile addicts would visit our house looking to score. From a child's perspective, they seemed to have only one goal - acquiring their next high. Growing up in this environment had a profound impact on my life and world view.
"I never felt safe."

Emotional and thought provoking.
Provided me with a strong insight on mental illnesses and the effect that a single drug affected parent can have on a child. It was very emotional towards the end which left me with deep thoughts about myself and my own family.
Excellent story telling, as it was fairly short. I managed to finish the whole audio book without any breaks and was engaged all the way through.

If you have gone through trauma - this book will help you to recover
Well written and honest - engaging the whole way through, Zac tells the story of his childhood - covering the most traumatic and embarrassing moments with some dark humor thrown in for good measure.
He provides a role model for those who have gone through trauma and a method of recovery - writing.
Well worth the read
