Whether you're 16 or 60 years old, if you or someone you know has struggled with being or becoming the person you want to be, you'll find familiar shared experiences in the pages of this book.
From an early age, Alex Fischler wanted to be a writer. But his dream seemed impossible: he didn't think he'd live through his teenage years and came close to committing suicide. In Need of Love is the personal story, told by Alex himself, of his struggle to deal with crippling mental and health issues - anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder - as the world around him fell apart.
After his parents' acrimonious divorce, Alex and his two younger brothers split time between their mother's and father's houses. But life in his mother's house was a nightmare of emotional and psychological abuse. Alex's teenage years were marked with multiple remarriages, supportive and unsupportive family members, friends who came and went, and self-destructive efforts to hold onto his identity in a life that felt increasingly worthless.
In Need of Love is the heartbreaking, inspirational real-life story of the search for one's soul and meaning in life - seen through the eyes of a young man who's not yet 21 years old.

"Whiny Diatribe with no redeeming value"
Why would I want to waste 3 plus hours of my life listening to some adolescent rant about how bad his parents were?
Where was the 'finding meaning' part?
