Brian Cuban’s new book confronts the demons that nearly destroyed him.
A successful law career. Popularity. Money. Almost everything Brian Cuban had ever dreamed of, but one thing was missing: sobriety.
It took years of self-discovery and discipline to find it, and now Cuban has put that journey into his second book, The Addicted Lawyer: Tales of the Bar, Booze, Blow and Redemption. With a nation gripped in an opioid addiction epidemic, Cuban reflects back on the road that nearly led to his destruction – and those who traveled it with him.
A veteran speaker before professional groups and on college campuses, we spent some time talking about the unsettling questions he hears – and the subtle messages of a culture that seems to promote a pill to solve every problem.
