Though author Ted Williams had been a famous and widely admired radio personality in Cincinnati, he succumbed to the destructive effects of crack addiction, losing his home, family, and self-respect. Deciding that his beautiful speaking voice was his only remaining asset, he planted himself on a street corner with a sign that said, "Will talk for food." Due to the Internet's ability to create instant fame through viral videos, Williams found resources to recover from his addiction. Giving thanks to God in this engaging, fast-paced, and inspiring memoir, Williams relates his previous success, the gritty details of crack houses and homelessness, and his return to sobriety.
