This was one of the first memoirs of recovery I read. Gripping, easy to identify with, and written with elegant simplicity, it created a false expectation that all such memoirs would be as good. I quickly followed Ninety Days with Clegg's first memoir, Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man, a harrowing story. That, too, was good, but I prefer this one, because of its emphasis on early recovery. It brought back some very beautiful memories. I strongly recommend this to anyone in recovery, no matter the substance.

An interesting read; Clegg himself is an excellent writer, for me though, the book was a little short, and would be better suited for someone who was/is and addict. His honesty and spirit make the book great, and a better account than most I have read in the past.

This will be of interest to anyone with a self-destructive compulsion, whether it is hard drugs, or just binge eating. Clegg manages to give a factual, but absorbing account of his struggles with sobriety, without being either self-pitying or self- exculpatory.
