    This was not for me I felt like he came off judgmental right off the bat, but I kept trying to give it a shot I stopped about 15% of the way in when it started sounding racist to me just as he was saying he isn t racist.

    I have to say, I really liked this book and I wasn t so sure I would when I began reading it I haven t ever read anything quite like this either Oliver takes us through his many relationships with these troubled women and he basically encounters many forms of addictions within them Through out all his ordeals with them that s lack of a better word he finds himself analyzing their behaviors, which allows him to hang in there with them long, long after he should have run away from them He ma I have to say, I really liked this book and I wasn t so sure I would when I began reading it I haven t ever read anything quite like this either Oliver takes us through his many relationships with these troubled women and he basically encounters many forms of addictions within them Through out all his ordeals with them that s lack of a better word he finds himself analyzing their behaviors, which allows him to hang in there with them long, long after he should have run away from them He makes it clear in the book he was and is no angel himself, which is nice, because he doesn t portray himself has a complete victim, which he could have done I think the one addiction he may not have fully explored was his own addiction with love and his need to save these girls from themselves, which explains his draw to them The average reader may read this and think he is either way too nice of a guy, or a guy who has no back bone and is just a doormat, or someone who is just incredibly naive But I would say, everything he does in relationships as an adult is also a result of his own childhood, just like the girls he encountered These girls were addicted to sex and drugs, while Oliver is addicted to love and wanting to take care of someone and saving them from a life of addiction, death, and abuse His father was an alcoholic who abused his mother and he couldn t help or fix either one of them because he was just a kid It took his father dying to save him and his mother I am sure, deep down there, he wished he could have saved them both and have them both in his life in a normal, healthy way, as that is what children who grow up in these situations all want So I believe he was renacting this in his adult life with these girls but he couldn t save them either So in reading this book, don t judge him or even them harshly I was waiting for him to make this connection in his book, but like so many people in his situation, he was too busy trying to figure out the ones he wanted to save instead of figuring out why he would put himself through this But overall, I liked the perspective he had in this book because I have never read or heard anything from a man in this position before this For him to put this out there for the world to read is pretty brave and I think this book has the ability to help anyone who is in a situation like his I also really liked many of the quotes and statistics he used in his book, you really gain an awareness of prostitution and drug addiction from reading this Overall, this was a good read no pun intended there

    I have to start off by saying I like Oliver I share a similar background, growing up in Germany and coming to North America after High School I share many of his views and opinions, and got a good chuckle out of those parts of the book.This book is explicit and uses bad language, but how can you write about this topic honestly without depicting it the way it is If you are easily offended, stay away from this book If you want a view of what drug addiction, prostitution and rock bottom look I have to start off by saying I like Oliver I share a similar background, growing up in Germany and coming to North America after High School I share many of his views and opinions, and got a good chuckle out of those parts of the book.This book is explicit and uses bad language, but how can you write about this topic honestly without depicting it the way it is If you are easily offended, stay away from this book If you want a view of what drug addiction, prostitution and rock bottom look like, run and buy this book.Oliver s life, and the girls who come in and out of his life, are a train wreck You can t stop reading, hoping against hope that one of them will follow through on straightening up.Oliver is obviously a very intelligent man He shares insights into addiction that are well researched and thoughtful Which makes me wonder why he was never able to meet a normal girl How come the only girls he ever meets are addicted, psychotic, lying, hooking, cheating girls How come he feels this need to try to save them, and enables their addiction After about page 300 I lost track of the names of girls It s the same story, the same behavior, the same conversation, with a revolving roster of girls Like he himself says the names change, but the story is always the same.I still haven t figured out why Oliver is so drawn to these girl For a smart guy that seems not so smart I would have thought that one day he will find a non addicted, well adjusted, normal girl Maybe in the sequel Which, if it comes out, I will be first in line to read.Overall, a bit lengthy at times, because your reading the same thing over and over about different girls, but still a very compelling read that will grab you on the first page and spit you out at the end It s the train wreck you can t look away from, while you shake your head and wish for Oliver to snap out of it, and you want to grab the girls and shake them And while you have those emotions, you know that you will never truly understand unless you have been there yourself

    I strongly recommend it I rarely read autobiographies Most of the authors have nothing essential to tell and the books are soooo boring But not this one No matter if you have the same experience or not it will touch you The book s very well written and easy to read The author speaks his mind without any fear he s brutally honest.Spoilers ahead.If you still believe in fairy tales do not read that book it doesn t have a happy ending Oliver is smart, but keeps on making the same mista I strongly recommend it I rarely read autobiographies Most of the authors have nothing essential to tell and the books are soooo boring But not this one No matter if you have the same experience or not it will touch you The book s very well written and easy to read The author speaks his mind without any fear he s brutally honest.Spoilers ahead.If you still believe in fairy tales do not read that book it doesn t have a happy ending Oliver is smart, but keeps on making the same mistake over and over again He s trying to save all these girls and doesn t give up on them no matter what they do to him just like Prince Charming, but they are far from Princesses He really needs to learn to say no and moves on I know that I sound cruel I really feel bad for these girls , but there are people that could not be saved
