I cannot figure out why so many people have given this book bad reviews. Most seem to hate it simply because they thought they were picking up an autobiography, but how is that a slight on the book? It's your own fault for not paying attention to what you're reading. I, personally, found this book very well-informed and thoroughly researched. Jeremy had done his research on all the topics he covered, from teen pregnancy to drug addiction. He made me laugh when talking about his once-owned greyhound, and he made me get teary-eyed when he spoke of the evils he has witnessed. It's a bit of a slower read since it's a very British style of writing and it's also more essay style than long plot. But I enjoyed it and that's all that matters.
