Relapse by Jake Anderson begins with an admission that, like a good fisherman, he would have become a proud alcoholic. But before he could become addicted to alcohol, skate boarding became his close companion and his “first addiction.” A horrible accident separates him from skateboarding forever and he gets involved with fishing to save his life from despair. He tells about the tragic loss of his father, and how he gets more into fishing. In that process he becomes an ace in handling such vessels and joins part of a popular TV show, falls in love, and of course, with a few more events to follow on more or less expected lines and some otherwise, these anecdotes are told with élan and make for interesting reading.
Relapse by Jake Anderson is an honest narration of a life unlucky to have had personal tragedies, but lucky enough to be always linked with action. Relapse also is a true reflection of that fast pace, clearly visible in this written picture. The compulsions that haunt the author, thoughts about his inadequacy popping up whenever he is in a pensive mood, his penchant to get involved in action whenever the demand so arose, and other facets of his adventurous life make good reading. With just enough description, honest and fast paced, and mostly sticking to the point, this collection of experiences tells us a lot about the man and his environs.
