One fan summed up people's emotions by stating that the book touched the heart while expressing joy that Cameron "found his way back home."

According to CloserWeekly, the 40-year-old opened up on all the obstacles he faced on his way to sobriety while discussing what made him turn to drugs in the first place. In his words:

"I was maybe trying to make sense of things … and trying to figure out where I fit in. I started drifting towards kids who were smoking, drinking, and [other] things, and I tied that in with friendship … and then it just kept going from there."

Extra TV adds that Catherine took it upon herself to help Cameron after his stint in prison. The actress not only accepted him with open arms but also helped him rebuild his relationship with his father.

According to Cameron, Michael was "understandably a little bit standoffish," and after years of working at it, their relationship is better. Luckily, Cameron reveals that his memoir played a part in helping the pair's relationship.

While he and his father had to work at becoming closer, Cameron didn't suffer the same fate with his siblings as their bond never broke throughout his struggle.

When Cameron isn't writing or promoting his works, he is spending quality time with his 2-year-old daughter, whom he describes a "pure delight."
