  • Holy f ck, what a tremendously readable story of stumbling, recovery, collapse, loss, redemption, confusion, and self discovery I ve read so many books about addiction, but this one is the first to take me inside the state and the sorrow of it Bill Clegg s writing is nothing less than fearless, even as it s wrapped in his own fear This is the kind of book you don t just read, you inhale its pages Clegg s sense of pacing is superb, and he finds this wonderful balance between detailing his conditi [...]

  • WARNING RANT AHEAD I am hopping mad about this book sorry Julie This should be edited down to be the epilogue of the paperback edition of his last book which I also read, and wasn t crazy about, but liked than this 24.95 for a 150 ish hardcover 5 pages of which, for example, are about a walk in the effing rain REALLY, Little Brown Ever hear of a little thing called PAPERBACK ORIGINAL Listen, I get that addiction is a horrible, wrenching, soul sucking disease Reviewing memoirs is tricky even lit [...]

  • I live for a good memoir, but in the words of Nicki Minaj, I don t know, mane A memoir versus a personal narrative requires a lot of reflection, right NINETY DAYS NINETY DAZE is a beach read there s no causation, there s zero analysis, there are tons of mildly interesting characters who all circle around some kind of addiction It s like the TRUE BLOOD series without anything supernatural, and less homoerotic He smoked a lot of crack, wrecked his life, destroyed his career, drained his bank accou [...]

  • Talk about a time when I did NOT need a good cry, but finished this book and had one anyway Bill Clegg is so talented.

  • This book fills in a lot of the blanks from Portrait of the Young Man as an Addict Clegg clearly withheld a great deal of information from his first book, making his rehab and recovery seem much easy than it really was I was extremely angry at him as I read this new book and realized how he had misrepresented his recovery in the prior work, but I guess once in denial, always in denial Yes,he does try to make up for that here, and his descriptions and representations of himself are quite harrowi [...]

  • Description Ninety Days is the true story of Bill Clegg s recovery crack addicted to clean and sober This memoir is the follow up to his first book , Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man, and begins where it left off after seventy three days of rehab.Review A raw and highly emotional look into the life of a once prominent businessman and his strenuous journey to sobriety, Ninety days is an intense, yet simply written, look into recovery from addiction It feels like I am reading Clegg s journal, [...]

  • After reading his story of going down in flames in Portrait of an Addict , I was curious to see how the recovery process went for him If you are an addict or know an addict, the path is predictable but still painful in all of the relapses, moments of personal blindness, the pain and the fury Halfway through this, I found myself itching while I think this recovery memoir can be useful to many who are new to recovery, those who are at risk of being set off by trigger memories should avoid this unt [...]

  • Ninety days Seems like ninety years of groundhog day as Clegg tried to piece together three months of time that benchmark a solid toehold on sobriety Clegg was finally able to write this account of his many failed attempts at rehab, of quitting binges with crack and vodka, of pissing off his sober friends while burning bridge after bridge and crack pipe after crack pipe It s nothing short of miraculous that Clegg had a single human being to turn to after his dissolute spiraling antics or even re [...]

  • This follow up memoir lacks the unmistakable intensity of its first volume, Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man A Memoir, and I think my appreciation of that first book has at least slightly colored my impression of the second.Still, though, this small book is worth reading At the end of Portrait, there is a sense of triumph over addiction, which I felt hungry for after reading page after page of Clegg s shocking experiences as a crack addict But this book reminds you that recovery from addicti [...]

  • A compelling look at addiction and relapse Clegg is a skilled writer and it was a fast read Still as person in recovery I cringed at some of brutal moments and sometimes wanted to shake Clegg The drama of relapse makes for a juicy read and as a literary agent Clegg knows how to push the tragic parts of his story over talking about a solution Nevertheless, it s a wholly accurate portrayal of life in recovery and he s a terrific writer I m just not sure I can say I loved it UPDATE After I read t [...]

  • Wow I read this book in one sitting It was exhausting If you ve ever wondered what an addict goes through on the roller coaster ride to recover, read this book Raw and heartbreaking, I just want to meet Bill Clegg and give him a hug.

  • Bill Clegg is a literary agent whose debut novel was long listed for the Man Booker Prize but before that, he was a crack head who was desperately trying to put 90 days of sobriety together and mostly failing He credits meetings and his fellow recovering addicts for his ultimate success and the stories in the book are illustrative of the strength of those relationships and the lure of addiction.

  • Sample quote The meeting begins As the basket is passed and people toss in their bills, I raise my hand and say that I have eight days, and as I do I know that eventually, not today, and probably not tonight, but at some point soon, I will pick up I will use again, this much I know.

  • Um dos melhores que eu j li na vida Um relato honesto, duro mas que apresenta uma realidade que precisa ser debatida sem preconceitos.

  • Good book nothing I would discuss with friends encourage them to read, but I wanted to find out how it ended.

  • There is no prize for beating an addiction, there is no finish line Like life itself, it s a work in progress You can t have it all You have to choose, do you want your addiction or do you want life You can t have both.You get to a point where you re sick and tired of being sick and tired.I never understood the AA philosophy until I read this book I was reluctant to look at it because of it s emphasis on God or a higher power I never liked the line I accept I am powerless over drugs and alcohol [...]

  • Well completed reading the book today, it is an interesting and often frustrating story of Bill Clegg trying to obtain his 90 days of Sobriety, 90 meeting in 90 days which is suggested by one of the programs which I followed reaching 18 years of sobriety His struggle of reaching this goal can be heartbreaking Bill Clegg is not only addicted to alcohol, but various drugs as well, the story is well written, and will no doubt encourage those persons trying to get the addiction monkey off their back [...]

  • I did not expect to like this, actually I wasn t impressed by Clegg s first book, Portrait Of An Addict As A Young Man I expected this to be an equally quick read, like the first, maybe with some vicarious thrills and sex thrown in once again His first book seemed to be saying, Look how bad I was with the emphasis on Look My expectations weren t much higher as I started to read It s easy to be snarky and spoiler alert note that the title could be 76 Days as that s how long the narrator stays sob [...]

  • Bill CleggBill Clegg delivers another heartwarming and heart wrenching memoir that is, like his other two books, mesmerizing, addictive and nostalgic.Bill Clegg is an amazing writer, and I would follow him anywhere From my very first book by him, his debut novel Did You Ever Have a FamilyDid You Ever Have A Family , Clegg has astonished me with how lyrical and deep his story telling talent is As in Did You Ever Have A Family, he keeps breaking and warming my heart with this epic journey from add [...]

  • Honest, direct memoir of ones journey in darkness Sometimes motivation, inspiration ambition are just empty fancy words and there is no option then going downhill Addiction is evil and explained first hand its dark and lives in the deeper recesses of brain ready to unleash itself at every possible point The pivotal point is that its you vs you Brain is what takes all decisions and that tells u, it reasons, convinces to take drugs, then the same brain says dont do thatould be killingGetting up in [...]

  • The complete opposite of the last book I read about addiction The Wolf Of Wall Street , Clegg paints a very relate able view of addiction and recovery Moving back to the city after a 6 week stay in rehab, Clegg has to discover how to avoid relapse with no outside force requiring his sobriety Living in his brother s office with no money, Clegg focuses all his efforts on attending multiple addicts meetings each day where he finds the community and support system he needs to reach ninety days.Latel [...]

  • Bill Clegg s follow up to Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man details his struggles with recovery from drug and alcohol addiction As someone with an alcoholic spouse, his memoir hit home to me the recurrent relapses, the endless A.A meetings, the risky behavior Clegg ultimately credits his current recovery to the support network that AA or NA provided him That the seemingly random strangers he met in AA kept him going through his recurrent relapses strikes him in retrospect as amazing If you ar [...]

  • Ninety Days is the sequel to Clegg s first memoir, Portrait of a Young Man as an Addict Both books will bring you to your knees for Clegg Because what the author has to say about life as an addict isn t just painful for him, its painful for his readers too And that s great writing.The story takes place in New York City, in both the grimiest neighborhoods and the most posh Clegg knows the city like the back of his hand, which gives his readers a virtual telescope into the big apple Some of the ch [...]

  • I was not super impressed with Bill Clegg s first book and memoir Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man , so I was slightly reluctant to continue reading his story BUT, i m glad I did This book is the story of his recovery and the struggle to get and stay clean One of the things that his first book did not do well was it was very boring because it was just the very repetitive cycle of him using, being paranoid, leaving, and using again While Ninety Days does have some of the repetitive structure [...]

  • Bill Clegg s book, Ninety Days, is a continuation of his struggle with addiction that we first were introduced to in Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man As in his first book, Clegg does an excellent job of taking the reader along on his journey through his worst days and into the present as he works to maintain his sobriety each day The narrative voice was so strong that I felt connected to him through all of his highs and lows I wanted to scream at him to go turn around as he makes his way to [...]

  • Having followed Bill Clegg through the depth of his addiction to crack cocaine and alcohol, I had always planned to read the follow up Although not as dramatic as his previous descent, it is a good insight into the mind of an addict and how setbacks are not the end of the world which is something that I think we can all learn from whether we ve addiction problems or not As always Clegg is readable and honest about his problems staying sober However, his romantic relationships during this period [...]
