Barry Wolf

Raised on the west side of Chicago in the '70s, essentially on my own, I learned to survive on whatever I could use. I became physically attractive to get things from women. I became street smart and strong to control what I could around me. I became educated to continue that control over those around me. I was in prison, at first trapped by addiction, pain and the need for admiration. I was later actually incarcerated. I only became free when I became honest with myself and one other person, my wife, who accepted me and loved me, the drug-addicted ex-convict.


About Book

This, crude and raw, not for the faint of heart narrative, is not based on a true story-it is painfully true.

Throughout many cities in the U.S. I tried to outrun myself and my addictions - to money, drugs and women, but each time, I found them right where I left them.
Raised as an overweight child, by drug addicted parents, taught every wrong way to survive, I struggled using dangerous protein powder to lose weight. Later, opioids, obtained by a myriad of legal and illegal means, satiated my addiction.
I am the most charismatic public speaker, desperate opiate addict, and prolific salesperson. I have been physically attractive most of my adult life - accomplished by diet, hard work, exercise and steroids. 
My inescapable flair for fabricated grandiosity, devoid of any morality, created an isolated existence wherein all relationships were finite.
I have been sexually abused as a child, graduated Medical School by the age of 19, been honorably discharged from the United States Air Force with commendation and, done five years in a federal penitentiary. 
This is the first time I've told my story the way it really happened.
