I should be dead : my life surviving politics, TV, and addiction by Bob Beckel( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growing up poor in an abusive home, Bob Beckel learned to be a survivor: to avoid conflict, mask his feelings, and to lie--all skills that served him well in Washington, where he would become the youngest-ever Deputy Assistant Secretary of State and manage Walter Mondale's 1984 presidential campaign. But Beckel was living a double life. On January 20, 2001--George W. Bush's first Inauguration Day--he hit rock bottom, waking up in the psych ward. Written with captivating honesty, Beckel chronicles how his addictions nearly killed him until he found help in an unexpected ally, conservative Cal Thomas, who helped him find faith, get sober, and get his life back on track
I should be dead : my life surviving politics, TV, and addiction by Bob Beckel( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From popular TV personality Bob Beckel, a deeply moving memoir written with his trademark candor and humor about his life as a political operative and diplomat, his long struggle with alcohol and drugs, and his unlikely journey to finding faith and redemption. Growing up poor in Lyme, Connecticut, with an abusive father, Bob Beckel learned to be a survivor: to avoid conflict, mask his feelings, and lie--all skills that would later serve him well in Washington, D.C., and on the campaign trail. In 1977 he became the youngest-ever Deputy Assistant Secretary of State and went on to manage Walter Mondale's 1984 presidential campaign, before launching a second career as a TV host and commentator. But Beckel was living a double life: Washington success story by day, self-destructing alcoholic by night. On January 20, 2001--George W. Bush's first Inauguration Day--he hit rock bottom, waking up in a hospital psych ward after a ferocious bender. Written with the frankness, warmth, and take-no-prisoners honesty that has earned him legions of fans on television, Beckel chronicles how his addictions nearly killed him before a series of friends and unexpected allies helped him find his way to faith, sobriety, and a life of peace and purpose"--
