"...Σε αυτό το βιβλίο καταθέτω, μέσα από τις ιστορίες που ακολουθούν, τους δικούς μου αγώνες και απώλειες. Έφτασα στα όρια μου ξανά και ξανά στην προσπάθεια να κάνω την πρόθεση μου πραγματικότητα, για μια καριέρα, μια επιχείρηση, μια σωστή σχέση - μια αξιοπρεπή και όμορφη ζωή. Όλες οι εμπειρίες μου τελικά συνέβαλαν στο να είμαι εδώ που είμαι σήμερα. Να λέω την ιστορία μου και να ευχαριστώ τον Θεό που είχα "το προνόμιο" της απελπισίας και μια ζωή να σχοινοβατώ χωρίς δίχτυ. Γιατί μόνο έτσι δεν αφήνεις τη δύναμή σου να φύγει από τα μάτια σου. Όταν δεν έχεις κάπου να πιαστείς......"
