And then, a chink of light as the hard work begins - rehab; AA meetings; endless, tedious, painful self-reflection - a rollercoaster ride through self-acceptance, friendship, love and hope, to a joy and pride in staying sober that her younger self could never have imagined. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I think that this tale will be relatable to many as the 80s kids reach their more analysing 40s decade. This book, warts and all, is a beacon of hope and is a testament to the human ability to persist and endure.

p>Read about how we’ll protect and use your data in our Privacy Notice.Reading this searingly honest memoir is hard going— it’s super readable— but hard to digest, especially as I am at the beginning of my own similar journey. The honesty is so appreciated and I had to keep reading portions aloud to my husband as I knew he would totally relate to Harry.

Never did I think I’d describe a book about alcoholism as “charming” but Gordon has such a way with words that I often found myself pulled into her life and her story in much the same way I assume booze pulled her in: with drama and a bit of a gamble. Billed a "sobriety memoir like no other" - and rightly so - in Glorious Rock Bottom, Gordon opens up about two decades of alcohol and drug abuse, and the way her "party girl" life nearly ruined her life and her family. Accessible and enthralling , Glorious Rock Bottom is one of the most important books I have read in years. I have read an number of Gordon's previous books (the wrong knickers, mad girl etc) and what I loved about this book is that it is a reflection of the journey you go through with addiction. And then, a chink of light as the hard work begins – rehab; twelve-step meetings; endless, tedious, painful self-reflection – a rollercoaster ride through self-acceptance, friendship, love and hope, to a joy and pride in staying sober that her younger self could never have imagined.Can't rate it enough for anyone that is doubting their relationship with alcohol or experiencing its interference and negative effects on a regular basis.
