A Book and a Chat with Rick Laham

Rick Laham is the guest on tonights “A Book and a Chat” talking about his life and his memoir, well part one of his memoir “Immaculate Recovery
The book follows his roller-coaster ride from happily married millionaire to divorced, homeless crack-addict who is frequently in jail or on the run—and of his road back to success and well being. The book combines Laham’s jail diary with provocative character studies of the various drug addicts, criminals and strippers—as well as grandmothers and wealthy professionals.

As one reviewer out it, the book is “soberly honest”, reminding me in some ways of Bunions “Pilgrims Progress”, Immaculate Recovery takes you on a journey to his multiple arrests and convictions on drug possession charges and related crimes. Justified in his "addict's mind" by the loss of his marriage and disconnection from his family, he writes about his spiraling down from being a successful businessman and functional pot smoker, morphing to a nocturnal life infested with crack cocaine - along with all the bad decisions that accompany the drug.

The second part of the book is in diary type format, written during his days in jail. Many of those details are simply insignificant, as mundane as jailhouse life itself. Though it was there, in the darkest hours that Rick found God and started on the road back to where he is today.

Immaculate Recovery” is a powerful true story of strength and hope, that he hopes will help many to fight the good fight, and to accomplish your destiny for His glory. Knowing that all things are possible and fulfilling the mission that God Himself has in store for you, whatever that mystery will reveal itself to be, and that you, too, can and will have an Immaculate Recovery.

As I said at the beginning, this is the first part of his memoir. The second part deals with financial and emotional recovery, corporate corruption and some of the links between big business and organized crime. Like this first book, I am sure that will make very interesting reading.

So listen now and share an interesting and entertaining show as I spend thirty minutes sharing "A Book and a Chat with Rick Laham".
