This audiobook is Nick Carter's autobiography and self-help hybrid, in which he chronicles his struggles with a dysfunctional family and the unimaginable rigors of becoming an internationally successful pop-star at the age of 12. From his battle with addiction to serious health complications and the pain of his younger sister's tragic death, Nick leaves nothing to the imagination and offers true and heartfelt advice to help listeners overcome obstacles in their own lives.

I think people write off celebrities far too quickly. This is the honest story of a man who has fallen into the Hollywood trap of drug, sex and alcohol abuse. This isn't a book full of Judy gossip in case some fans are disappointed, but it is a self help book for those who could be facing the same demons Nick once was. It is an eye opener, because as a fan of Nick and the BSB, I had no idea as to what depths his suffering was like. I am so pleased he has found the faith, strength and courage to get to where he is today - happily married, a father and sober. He is an inspiration to many and I hope this book saves lives.
"Its a self help book"
I had no idea it was a self help book.
I thought it would be a autobiography, I would have preferred that.
The narration was ok but again it would have been better if Nick had done it himself.
I would have rather read this in book form to really hear Nicks voice instead of Ted's
"Nick Carter should have narrated this"
Definitely another book from Nick Carter, but I was not happy that he did not narrate this book himself!
This book is a mix of self-help book and biography.
"I almost want to give this a 1 star...ughhh"
This was a self-help book and FAR LESS about his history and life. I was NOT AT ALL looking for advice from NC on life and found the book terribly annoying.
And NC does NOT even read it...I just hated all of it.
He was fine but I was expecting NC. SHould have read more closely.
"The narrator nails it."
I'm not that much of a Nick Carter fan but a friend recommended this book to me and I got it, and boy am I glad that I did. Not since hearing Jack Welch: Straight from the Gut narrated by Mike Barnicle have I heard such a good interpretation of the author's own voice and intent. As I really felt Mike Barnicle perfectly channelling Welch, so does Ted Evans channel Nick Carter through his voice. I can't wait to hear Evans' next book - hopefully it's for a more substantive story.
Carter lost me at "Chapter 3: Til Death Do We Party."
This is the first I've heard of Ted Evans's audiobooks but I'm looking forward to hearing more.
I think of all of the biographies I've read or listened to, this one made me feel the most secure with not being a celebrity.
Get this on audiobook, not on paperback - it's a great listen.
