One evening in 1994, William Cope Moyers was lying flat on his back on the floor of an Atlanta crack house at the end of a four-day cocaine binge while his father, veteran journalist Bill Moyers, frantically searched for him. In this haunting memoir, William shares the incredible and harrowing story of how he got from there to where he is today -- a recovered addict and family man who has dedicated himself to those who continue to struggle with the merciless influence of addictive drugs. Candid, shocking, and unforgettable, Broken is a clear-eyed, unromanticized tale that offers hope for all those wrestling with addiction and has already inspired thousands of people to step forward and ask for help.

"William Cope Moyers's lucid, measured tale of his own plunge into crack-addled hell [is] frightening in its very realism."
"Broken is a memoir of a terrible disease and one man's spiritual journey through it . . . that should be read by those who have friends or family members caught in addiction."
