Before meth, Sheff's son Nic was a varsity athlete, honor student, and award-winning journalist. After meth, he was a trembling wreck who stole money from his eight-year-old brother and lived on the streets. With haunting candour, Sheff traces the first subtle warning signs, the denial (by both child and parents), the three a.m. phone calls (is it Nic? the police? the hospital?), the attempts at rehab, and, at last, the way past addiction. He shows us that whatever an addict's fate, the rest of the family must care for one another too, lest they become addicted to addiction.Hide synopsis

As the father of a young adult with a debilitating chemical dependency problem, I found that reading this open description of David Sheff?s painful attempt at learning to live with his son?s difficult life helpful and, in some strange way, hopeful. I strongly recommend it to anyone with an addict in ...
What a beautiful story...how deeply a father cares for his son. It was touching and insightful as well as informative. Thank God, I never had to deal with a child's addiction but it made me appreciate how close we actually came as a family in having to deal with such a powerful issue.
I read this book a year ago. Since then I've given it to others whenever I've become aware that they are the parents of someone whose has a meth addiction. I spent 15 years as the parent of two children who were addicted. Having personal experience of the angst, I cried at times as I read and remembered ...
Beautiful Boy by David Sheff was given to me by a friend who works in the drug addiction services arena. She figured that it would be therapeutic for me as my son was an addict for ten years and has maintained sobriety for the past two years. Little did I know how reading Beautiful Boy would bring up ...
