Publisher's Summary

The Unfair Advantage is the edge-of-your-seat story of John “Robby” Eddy, a former federal prisoner whose crimes made national headlines. But that conviction was just the tip of the iceberg. 

“I had done far worse,” Robby writes, “and with far worse people. I had been arrested 45 times, almost died a violent death on several occasions (including once by a contract killing), ravaged my mind and body with powerful drugs and nonstop drinking for years, and OD’d twice, once to the point of looking down on my coding body as the paramedics frantically applied the defibrillator paddles in the ambulance.”

All before his 29th birthday. 

Then, one night, on a cold jail cell floor, he found the "unfair advantage" that turned his world around! Today, he is 10 years sober, with a beautiful wife and family, a prosperous business, and an all-in mission: to help others find the freedom he discovered.

A hair-raising tale - from brawls with skinheads to death threats from drug lords, from strutting around in Gucci and Rolex and Ferragamo to detoxing in a padded cell, from paying cash for luxury cars to fighting for his life in a federal pen - John “Robby” Eddy tells his story with a transparent honesty that will move and thrill your heart.

The Unfair Advantage: My Story of Conquering the Beast of Addiction will change your life.

A must read for anyone who has experienced addiction in their family

This is an amazing, captivating and inspiring true story of perseverance. By the power of the Holy Spirit, through Christ and by the grace of God, it reflects how lives can be transformed and people can become what God always wanted them to be.
Anyone who does not believe that God leaves the 99 and goes after the one who wanders away; or those who do not believe in miracles need to read this book.
