    DescriptionIn his heyday, Ed Mitchell interviewed Prime Minister, Presidents and international business leaders over a thirty-year career. He climbed to the top of his profession working first as a Reuters trainee in Fleet Street, then for the BBC and ITN News at Ten. Ed enjoyed a six-figure salary and had a seemingly perfect family life. But, inside, he was battling demons that would eventually take control of his life. He struggled with a growing addiction to alcohol, as well as credit card debts that were spiralling out of control. After 25 years, Ed's marriage collapsed and he declared bankruptcy. His last resort was sleeping rough on Hove seafront. This shocking tale of Ed's fall from grace became headline news and sparked a media frenzy. A documentary, Saving Ed Mitchell, was broadcast on ITV and viewed by over 5 million people. Ed was able to book into Europe's most famous rehab centre, The Priory, thanks to a benefactor who had read of his story. He is now two years into recovery. This stunningly candid book provides hope and shows that anyone has the power to change from a similar life of destitution.
