Summary

His music could have made Damien Cantwell the star of his generation. But living fast has its consequences, and Damien soon finds himself spiraling into a dark world full of unfettered debauchery and brutal violence. The horrors of drug addiction are painted in sharp, biting prose in this novel about throwing away everything and finding that some things are too precious to lose.

Couldn't stop listening once I started.

I think Wasting Talent was a phenomenal. book. The way Ryan tells the stories are SOOOO DESCRIPTIVE and you ALMOST feel like ur there. Can't wait for rhe album, or the new book. PLEASEEE get someone else to read it....dude was mispronouncing words and all. PALABRA

Captivating and realistic!

This book is great. An easy read that holds your attention. If you or someone you are close to has dealt with addiction you will be able to relate to this book. It highlights the disfunctional lifestyles that your average addict deals with. Check it out, it is funny at moments and intensely real at others. You will enjoy it.

Insane

This book had me cringing almost the entire time with the amount of detail the author went into. Beautifully sad and twisted love story. Totally recommend it.
