Reviews - What do customers think about Three Dog Nightmare: The Continuing Chuck Negron Story?
A "Must Read" for anyone touched directly or indirectly by addiction Jul 6, 2008
I was spellbound by this book and could not put it down. I was an infant when Three Dog Night was most popular, but my husband (12 years my senior) got me interested in them and since then I have been a big fan. I love the music and continue to share it with my child and others in our family. Reading what went on behind the scenes when these unforgettable songs were produced has given them a whole new meaning and depth for me.
I have read hundreds of books on addiction and I have to say that this is absolutely without a doubt one of the best stories of finding hope where there wasn't any and finding the road to sobriety and spiritual enlightenment. Chuck's brand is not this "celebrity sobriety" we see in today's culture which is often short lived and riddled with bouts of relapse. It can be done and Chuck Negron is proof.
If you know someone who is struggling with addiction, if you have a loved one who is suffering and you think the situation is hopeless or if you know someone who doesn't understand addiction, give them a copy of this book...it is very thought provoking, full of great information, well written and eye opening. Don't pass on this book!

Buckle your seat belt, Three Dog Nightmare will take you on a gripping ride! Chuck Negron, the power house singer and a founding member of Three Dog Night, takes you on his journey from his humble beginnings to the pinnacle of fame. He had it all; from gold records to millions of dollars, and an endless supply of sex and drugs. Sadly, Chuck spiraled into a hell of crippling addiction for many years that cost him everything. But something deep in Chuck allowed him to find the grace of recovery and totally reclaim his life. Three Dog Nightmare is disturbing, moving, and an inspiration to anyone seeking positive transformation and change in their life.
Very helpful for addicts and their families. Chuck is a living legend!!! May 7, 2008

Three Dog Nightmare: The Continuing Chuck Negron Story
Three Dog Nightmare The Continuing Chuck Negron Story is the most powerful and incredible story you will ever read. If you think living the life of a famous Rock and Roll Star is all glamorous you are so wrong. If you or someone you know is a drug addict or alcoholic and you think all hope is lost. Then you definitely need to read this book. The fact that Chuck Negron lives today to tell his story is a true miracle. The courage and strength that it had to take to open up his life in this book makes him the most respected person I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and meeting. I get so upset with people that make comments like oh look how they wasted their lives on drugs and alcohol. Why do they do that, Why don't they just quit, how could they do that in the first place. Because it isn't a choice. It's an addiction and it only takes some people one time to try it before they are hooked. Most people don't know that it can also be genetic and handed down from a family member like a father or grandparent. It's part of your chemestry make up from the day you are born. Even if your own Mother and Father never drank a day in their life. How much do you really know about your family history?
Chuck does a great job in this book explaining what it really means to be a junkie. He also explaines the difference between some people that can be social drinkers and the difference between those that have additive personalitys. Those are the ones that get hooked and get hooked fast! Again that can all be caused as a part of your genetic make up by being born with and addictive personality or born an alcoholic.
If you don't think so, ask someone you know that smokes ciggerettes and has cancer or lung disease and ask them why they don't quit or why did they do that, or how could they mess their lives up like that. I'll tell you why, Cause Nictoine is a drug and it is an addiction. The addictivness of it is no different then the addiction of any other drugs or alcohol. I know cause Im addicted nicotine in ciggerettes and I have lung disease. It's not a choice once your addicted. It's pathetic that I still smoke to this day and I can't quit. I've tried hypnosis and everything. It's not just a physical addiction it's a physcological addiction.
It's always easy for people to judge when they have never walked in another person's shoes. What our country really needs is alot more awareness and education on drugs and alcohol addiction. Most people don't even know that you can be born an alcoholic and never drink a day in your life. Your born with it. They can even do brain wave test on children to see if they are born alcoholics and most people don't know that either. That's why we need more education and awareness about it. Chuck more then anyone has really made that very clear in this book. He shows just how little people know about it and how little they understand it. Because no one in their right mind that had everything to gain and had everything they could want like he did would ever throw it away for a life like he lived as an addict and a junkie.
I know that God is the only reason that Chuck is alive. He has a purpose in life. If you think it didn't take a lot of courage and strength for him to open his life up to the whole world. Then take a good moral inventory of your own life and see how much you would be willing to tell someone in order to save a life. Would you ever open up your life about something your not proud of that you did wrong to save someone's life? Not to many people would. Chuck has opened a very dark side of his life to the world in hopes of saving others from one of the worst things in life and that's drug addiction. God Bless you chuck!
Just remember that the life that he save's, might be your own or someone you love. So I hope that everyone will read this book so you will know the signs and know what and what not to do to save a loved one. I hope that it will find you wanting to research alot more on it so you will have more awareness and educate yourself on it.
chuck, Thank you so much for opening up some of the most painful part's of your life in this book in effort to help others. You are truly a gift from God and a True Inspiration.

Nothing Really New Apr 4, 2008
This book is merely "Three Dog Nightmare" with added chapters and updating. Up to Chapter 31 its the same as the original book. I was hoping it was some different views or just another take on Chuck Negron's life and music. It is not a bad book just not want I expected.
