Will he be able to prove the doctors wrong? Accompany the author on the path to finding himself and living in reality.

Editorial Review

Eluding Reality is the very candid, autobiographical journey of Gordie through his ups and downs – before the grip of addiction, his path to recovery and everything in between. This book was executed brilliantly.

I give Eluding Reality 4 out of 4 stars. Gordie Bufton should be proud of this book, and proud of who he has become. On page 236, he says that he writes, "potentially helping millions of young adults make healthier choices and helping their parents understand what could be going on in their childrens' lives". You, sir, have done just that.
