From Headlines to Hard Times

From Headlines to Hard Times

by Ed Mitchell




In his heyday, Ed Mitchell interviewed Prime Ministers, Presidents, and international business leaders over a thirty-year career. He climbed to the top of his profession working first as a Reuters trainee in Fleet Street, then for the BBC and ITN News at Ten. Ed enjoyed a six-figure salary and had a seemingly perfect family life. But, inside, he was battling demons that would eventually take control of his life. He struggled with a growing addiction to alcohol, as well as credit card debts that were spiraling out of control. After 25 years, Ed's marriage collapsed and he declared bankruptcy. His last resort was sleeping rough on Hove seafront. This shocking tale of Ed's fall from grace became headline news and sparked a media frenzy. Eventually, Ed was able to book into Europe's most famous rehab center, The Priory, thanks to a benefactor who had read of his story. He is now two years into recovery. This stunningly candid book provides hope and shows that anyone has the power to change from a similar life of destitution.
