Best Book 2005 Award Winner!

"Breakdown is a modern day Dante's Inferno--a riveting spiritual and intellectual journey."
- Will McCaughey, former Editor-in-Chief, Vatican Radio

"Even before opening your book I knew it was going to help me place my thoughts and feelings into some kind of order -- to rid myself of the self-pity that was dominating me and to come out a little into the sunshine. The whole weekend I stayed at home and read all of your book. As I passed through the chapters I could feel a large weight removing itself gradually from me, until I woke on Monday morning with new hopes, new perspectives and a sense of inner calm. Thank you for aiding me in a dark moment and reminding me that "the only journey worth taking is the journey within." My love and gratitude to you."
- Gayle Francis, Athens, Greece

"Couldn't put the book down. Could relate to so much in this memoir. Although I am not gay, and didn't travel in "A" list circles, I had everything I thought I needed like the author. Always felt something was missing. Thought I found solace in drugs and booze. I know there is more to life than material things. But reading this book is making me feel inspired to go to school for something I always wanted to do. To hopefully have a real relationship with a woman and not shallow sex encounters. I want real friends too, not just the guys at work and all the shop talk. Awesome book. Give this book a try if your looking for a lift."
- Anonymous Website Posting

"Your book is a real triumph! I was touched by your struggle, self-awareness, and spiritual awakening. I identified very strongly with so many of your feelings, and went on a mini-journey of my own through the process of reading your book."
- Jeffrey Cohen, New York, NY

"I found your journey riveting! Your style of writing put me on a wave that flowed frome page one to the very last word in a single day! Your "chance" meeting with Spiros was destiny . . . guiding you to a higher realm of self. Bravo to you for sharing!"
- Elizabeth D'Abbraccio, North Providence, RI

"Breakdown speaks to the universal quest and struggle for insight into the meaning of existence. Greg’s downward spiral that ultimately led to his awakening is both brutally honest and courageous. I could not put this insightful memoir down."
- Laurie Kirby, Executive Director, Newport International Film Festival
