About Nick Carter

Nick Carter, best known as an incredibly talented member of the Backstreet Boys, has endured a very public struggle with addiction, family turmoil and health issues since the tender age of 12 years old. Together with the rest of the wildly successful boy band, he recorded multiple albums beginning in the1990s and continues to record and perform with them in 2013. Riding the wave of BSB's worldwide fame, Nick also released two solo albums and starred in a hit reality TV show, "House of Carters," with his four siblings before the tragic death of his sister, Leslie. Carter has not made a secret of his ongoing fight with drug and alcohol abuse over the years he's spent in the public eye, but this book is his first complete account of his tumultuous life and pop-star lifestyle. Determined to use his own story to help change the lives of others battling their own demons, Nick writes this book with an open heart and a deep desire for truth and honesty.show more

Our customer reviews

I feel bad for giving this 2 stars. I wanted to like this book, I admire Nick for opening up about his messy past and encouraging others to fix up their lives. I think it just got very repetitive at times and I think it doesn't stand up as a "great" self-help book, nor a celebrity memoir.show more
