Reviews for The Raw, Bold Truth
The story of John’s tumultuous life and his recovery are told in John’s voice. He became a certified Life Skills Coach, and popular motivational speaker in jails and schools, making many new friends along the way. His message: it takes a fearless honesty and intense and prolonged courage to overcome an addiction, but it can be done.
Throughout the book, Joan interjects to give her perspective on the man and on her own struggles with his eventual relapses and, later, with losing him.
This moving and lovingly told story is a lifeline to anyone who struggles with addiction or is caught up in a lifestyle they feel they cannot escape.
