I expected a lot more from this book. The performance was great however the substance was heavily focused on drug and alcohol addiction. This was heightened by the focus on fringe and unfortunate individuals and I felt like that’s all the book really spoke about. Noffs mentioned some interesting facts about brain functions and how they facilitate addictions however this was at a very basic level. He then whiplashes straight back to the backbone of the book of feeling sorry for drug and alcohol addicts rather than the plethora of other addictions out there. I think the book could have been longer with greater depth into other areas and perhaps some greater insight into global issues rather than purely Australia. I’d like to mention that the work that the Noffs foundation has done is amazing. Overall I was glad I finished the book but I would not recommend this one. There will be better out there if this topic takes your fancy. Do further reading yourself about Ted Noffs and the Noffs Foundation and save yourself some money.

The arguments presented are very enlightening and engaging. However you need to concentrate as some of the topics are quite complex. The performance was well rounded too.
