N recalls the events leading up to his daughter Terry's death as a result of alcoholism What McGovern learned from Terry is an unforgettable poignant tale certain to engender controversy and compassion. I found this to be an excellent account of a tragic situation The extensive use of Terry s journals and so her voice add the element of having a person who ultimately died from alcoholism tell us what that is like The author s research and commentary on alcoholism and treatment for alcoholism are also excellentI ve read reviews that criticize George McGovern s attempts to explain alcoholism and offer suggestions for treatment based on the fact that another of his children went on to die of the disease I don t find that this takes away from his attempts Alcoholism remains tragically difficult to understand to treat and to recover from and no book by an anguished father is going to change thatThe book is interesting and entertaining as much a book about a true tragedy can be I know it has already helped many people see a problem in themselves or loved ones seek treatment and achieve the recovery that eluded Terry

Amily drama of love and loss New York Times Rarely has a public figure addressed such difficult intimate issues with such courage and bravery In a moving passionate memoir former Senator George McGover. Very sad Written by a man in great pain Spent 30 years being a codependent to his child s disease and still blames himself I give him credit for writing an open raw book He still sees his daughter as what she was before or what she could have been She was not the loving mother or wonderful daughter or great friend She was an alcoholic probably severely depressed who self medicated but abused her daughters while drinking and placed them in dangerous situations She blamed her family for all her problems and took no accountability and used her friends as way stations until they could no longer put up with her antics The alcoholic will always tell you what you want to hear maybe believing it themselves but will continue down their path of not just self destruction but mutual destruction to all those who have ever cared about them for in the end they are vey self involved people Their low is always their low you will find it has no part of the havoc it caused in the lives they touched This book hit a little to close too home
