    Spungen does a good job of integrating what she's learned as a homicide survivor with stories from others. If you ever have to deal with people who have undergone serious trauma (particularly homicide), this would be good to pick up.

    Ick. Maybe I was not in the proper frame of mind to appreciate the supposed humorous side of this sbook but did not enjoy it. Bless the guy for surviving his childhood. Not one I would recommend.
