Summary, etc.:
Perry takes readers behind the scenes of the sitcom Friends-- and into his struggles with addiction. Vividly detailing his lifelong battle with alcoholism and drugs, he examines what fueled it despite seemingly having it all: the desire for recognition that drove him, the void inside him that could not be filled, and the peace he's found in sobriety. -- adapted from back cover
