Millionaire Junkie Summary


Millionaire Junkie: My Journey Down to Heroin - and Back by Jason Peter

Blighted by a neck injury at a young age, sports superstar Jason Peter was forced to retire prematurely. In just a few short years, Peter's brilliant career was in ruins as he found himself consumed by painkillers, then crack and finally heroin. His addiction transformed him from a pumped-up athletic gladiator to a small, wispish shell of his former self.

In Millionaire Junkie, Peter tells of the lost days and nights spent prowling the streets of Manhattan, flying cross-country with high-class call girls and doing piles of heroin and cocaine. It is a visceral, ragged-edged story of true glory, self-destruction, addiction and, finally, redemption.

Millionaire Junkie Reviews


An unflinching look at the dark side of a life devoted to pleasure . . . the book's power lies in his honesty in detailing the depths of his despair from seeking the next high * Publishers Weekly *
A portrait of a red-blooded jock as monster dope fiend . . . had Hunter Thompson been a football player instead of a fan, this is the book he'd have written -- Jerry Stahl, author of Permanent Midnight and I, Fatty
A bleak if compelling read, but has a genuinely uplifting ending * Maxim *
Peter's cautionary tale of success, stardom and the pressures of fame transcends continents and sport . . . stark and honest, it paints a bleak picture of drug addiction but offers salvation in the way he finally turned his life around * News of the World *
