    Another book on the antics of a using addict? Didn’t anyone learn anything from James Frey’s “A Million Little Pieces” other than it probably is a good idea to maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, and films? Especially when things are blown out of proportion and the expense of making money and others lives. Here is an excerpt of the review from Amazon.com:

    “Joshua Lyon was no stranger to substance abuse. By the time he was seventeen, he had already found sanctuary in pot, cocaine, Ecstasy, and mushrooms–just to name a few. Ten years later, on assignment for Jane magazine, he found himself with a two-inch-thick bottle of Vicodin in his hands and only one decision to make: dispose of the bottle or give in to his curiosity. He chose the latter. In a matter of weeks he’d found his perfect drug”.

    Sounds like he was well on his way before the painkillers….
