I’m a fan of Barnett’s C is for Crank reporting so her personal story interested me. It is a challenging inspirational book, because she describes, in riveting detail, failing over and over again. She takes responsibility for faulty, self-justifying beliefs and for previous character weaknesses. This must have taken courage and insight. Whether alcohol touches your friends and family or not, one can learn from Barnett’s autobiography. It is extremely readable. Conclusions in final chapter are valuable.
