Must read! Deeply personal and engaging message of hope
By Tracy Herrick
Babylon Confidential is an incredible story of hope that grabbed me by the heart strings almost from the first page. Moments of gut-wrenching loss, both in Claudia’s childhood and adult life are described in such vivid detail that I couldn’t help but cry. At other times, I just couldn’t stop laughing. Most of her fans, like me, have already experienced Claudia’s amazing talent for spinning a funny story, with her excellent sense of comedic timing and her flare for unique and sometimes shockingly creative analogies. This book has plenty of that.
It gives rare insight into the lives and personalities of people who are no longer with us, like Dodi Fayed, Gary Devore, Lana Clarkson and Jeff Conaway. It shows Hollywood life not just at its shiniest, but also at its darkest and, in some cases, scariest. One thing that Claudia Christian does not do in this book is gloss over or shy away from her own fallibility. She lives, she laughs, she cries out in pain, she loves deeply, she gets angry, she dreams big and she makes mistakes. She’s brutally honest about all of it. She’s real. That’s why, when she’s on the floor retching her guts out and hallucinating at the hands of her alcoholism, it’s really hard to make that moral judgment so many of us are guilty of, especially with celebrities. Rather than dismiss her as some Hollywood addiction cliché, you’re right there pulling for her to find some way, any way back out. I’ll be honest. I wanted to punch her “monster” directly in the face. Then, just when you think all is lost, she finds the Sinclair Method. It saves her life and motivates her to spread the word in order to save others the years of struggle she had to endure.
Babylon Confidential, once you start reading it, is very difficult to put down, not just because it is well written, which it is, but because putting it down would be like walking away from a heart to heart conversation with a friend. It’s a brave story about having hope, clinging to it in the bleakest, most excruciating moments, and ultimately wanting to share it with others. If you are a fan of Claudia’s, if you’re a fan of Babylon 5, if you have an addiction, if you know someone who has an addiction or if you just need to know that no matter how bad things get, there’s still hope for you and for your life, read this book.

An Amazing Read – Highly Recommended!
By M. Thau
Claudia has lived a life of significantly greater highs and lows than most of us ever dream about… much less experience. What is interesting is that the innumerable tragedies she suffered through would have broken and killed nearly all of us. Claudia not only managed to survive but thrive. Her story is one of the very few that appeals to men and women alike; to those who love and hate sci-fi; and to anyone who has faced serious challenges in life. To my astonishment, I was personally, deeply affected by her story and am a better person after reading it.
I cannot recommend ‘Babylon Confidential’ strongly enough and I am an exceptionally tough critic when it comes to autobiographies!
