5.0 out of 5 stars Not One Dull Moment In The Entire Book!
Reviewed in the United States on October 9, 2020
Transparent, real and raw are three words that best describes the book Short Stories by Columbus Short. In his new book Columbus addresses all questions and finally tells his side of the stories and rumors we’ve all heard over the years. He definitely left no stone unturned.

For example...

Did you ever hear the rumor of how Columbus slept with Brittney Spears while he was her choreographer? Well, in this book he addresses it! Heard about stories of him getting into bar fights? He writes about that too. Wondering if he acknowledge the accusations of physically abusing his wife? Absolutely he does! Did he dish the tea on being fired from Scandal? Yup! Does he talk about his drug and alcohol use? No doubt! Trust me he tells it all.

This book felt like a purge. Like he somehow released all his baggage & set himself free.

One thing I really appreciate about the book is how transparent Columbus is as he shares his journey with alcoholism. It was a rough journey. He admits alcohol isn’t his friend. But he has come out on top, and has been sober for one year.

What he talks about most in the book is his volatile relationship with his ex-wife. The book actually begins with an explosive story about his former best friend, along with, his ex-wife whom he refers to as “that woman”.

Overall, I found this book very juicy. It’s filled with ups and downs, highs and lows. There is never a dull moment. A page turner for sure.

The book is interesting I just can't give it too much credit because I'm not a fan of self-sabotage so I hope eventually Columbus can conquer his demons. And the mention of Denzel Washington in the context he presents left a bad taste in my mouth. Denzel has paid dues Columbus will never have too so I pray for his true deliverance. Keep striving for a better way Columbus you still have tremendous work to achieve.
