This collection was written over the course of four months, after completing and outpatient rehabilitation program for alcoholism. He leads us through the distorted emotional struggle in his mind, through the reality of confronting his addiction, and the reasoning for his escapism. He reverts to his past, taking the reader on his travels and lessons learned in Japan, and also introduces the woman that acted as a catalyst to his recovery.

The author's documented struggles with alcoholism and life, is read as another man's lesson.
