David Sheff's story is a first: a teenager's addiction from the parent's point of view; a real-time chronicle of a son's shocking descent into substance abuse and his gradual emergence into hope.
Before meth, Sheff's son Nic was an accomplished athlete, top student, and award-winning journalist. After meth, he was a trembling wraith who stole money from his eight-year-old brother and lived on the streets. With haunting candour, Sheff traces the first subtle warning signs, the denial, the three a.m. phone calls (is it Nic? the police? the hospital?), the attempts at rehab, and, finally, the way past addiction. He shows us that whatever an addict's fate, the rest of the family must care for one another too, lest they become addicted to addiction.
Crystal Meth is acknowledged to be the world's most addictive and dangerous drug - wreaking permanent brain damage faster than any other readily available narcotic. But Nic's story is not just about meth. His addiction caused the same damage that any addiction can. His story, and his father's, is that of any family struggling to support an addict.
With ever-more ominous signs that an epidemic is set to hit Britain's shores, Sheff's in-depth treatment of meth and its impact offers us a cautionary tale of a drug we can no longer afford to ignore.
Featuring an exclusive extract from David's son Nic's companion memoir TWEAK (This is an advert for another book so please make it stand out from the rest of the copy)

#1 New York Times bestseller Now a Major Motion Picture Starring Steve Carell * Timothée Chalamet * Maura Tierney * and Amy Ryan “A brilliant, harrowing, heartbreaking, fascinating story, full of beautiful moments and hard-won wisdom. This book will save a lot of lives and heal a lot of hearts.” — Anne Lamott “‘When one of us tells the truth, he makes it easier for all of us to open our hearts to our own pain and that of others.’ That’s ultimately what Beautiful Boy is about: truth and healing.” — Mary Pipher, author of Reviving Ophelia What had happened to my beautiful boy? To our family? What did I do wrong? Those are the wrenching questions that haunted David Sheff’s journey through his son Nic’s addiction to drugs and tentative steps toward recovery. Before Nic became addicted to crystal meth, he was a charming boy, joyous and funny, a varsity athlete and honor student adored by his two younger siblings. After meth, he was a trembling wraith who lied, stole, and lived on the streets. David Sheff traces the first warning signs: the denial, the three a.m. phone calls—is it Nic? the police? the hospital? His preoccupation with Nic became an addiction in itself. But as a journalist, he instinctively researched every treatment that might save his son. And he refused to give up on Nic. “Filled with compelling anecdotes and important insights . . . An eye-opening memoir.” — Washington Post
