“Dying for Triplicate is raw look into the demon of addiction. Todd’s story offers up a daily (and nightly) dose of true chaos between society’s norm and the addicts norm. Prescribe this book to anyone dealing, battling, or enabling addictions.”
“Oh boy could I relate! (even though I’m not a drug addict)….
I’m an alcoholic! Todd and I got sober just months apart and as i read this, it sent me back to my own battle with addiction. This book is well written, real and hard to put down. As an alcoholic, I like to read recovery books to remind me of my past, my present and my program. What I like about this book is the way Todd describes his experience, strength and his hope. It is a tragic story with an incredible message of what can be if you don’t give up! Thanks Todd.”
“Best book EVER!!!!

ANYONE with a drug problem, (ESPECIALLY pills), or even just Anyone that wants to understand pill addiction NEEDS to read this!!!! This guy is SO lucky to be alive (n sober now!) n this was by far the most incredible story ever!!!! N I could totally relate!! Might sound cliche to say, but MUST read!!! I could NOT put it down n bookmarked the hell out of it!!!! This guy should win awards for his life story!!!!!!”
This book is hard to stop reading.Todd is VERY honest,he creates such images in this book-very descriptive,vivid and informing on the addiction he went through-step by step…It’s a really sad story and is totally hilarious too…I’ve never experienced an addiction to this degree.This book in my opinion will give a good deal of hope to someone in the depths of addiction hell.The book reminds us to live life to the fullest and appreciate every second we have and that there is hope for anyone to kick addiction.I think this is a book for anyone.”
I have to admit that I bought this book because another so called author was bashing this book and this author so much that I was intrigued into reading it. What a great story this was!! I am so glad that I read it and I couldn’t put it down. This is definitely a must read for anyone that is interested in a true story about the horrible world of drugs. I would love to read a follow up story about Todd, he is a great storyteller! I think I will thank the (ahem) writer that was bashing this book so much and let him knowRead More »
“An absolute MUST READ!
I LOVED this book! This story gives a very real inside look at all aspects of addiction in a way that is especially identifiable to other addicts. Talk about a story of overcoming the constant battle with self that addicts go through. Plus the story makes you laugh, cry and gives you hope when you feel you have none. This is a MUST READ for any person who has been effected by addiction whether it is you or someone you love. I can’t say enough great things about this book! I’m so very thankful that Todd was braveRead More »
Absolutely life changing! This book was a fantastic account of addiction and recovery. I have never read such a helpful book on the subject. I picked up “Dying for Triplicate” hoping to gain some understanding on addiction, as many close loved ones struggle with addiction. I could not have asked for more from the book- I got the understanding I was looking for, and then some! I laughed out loud many times, teared up more than I thought I would, and ended with such a feeling of satisfaction. This book is the reason
my boyfriend went into treatment. He finally had some hope that that he could get sober after reading about someone getting past an addiction similar to his. I cannot possibly describe the help that I got from this book. Thank you Todd for sharing your story and giving people HOPE that they too can get past this horrible addiction! I highly recommend this book to anyone with a loved one struggling with addiction, as well as addicts themselves.”
“One Wild Ride.
I knew Todd Zalkins from the old Long Beach Records chat boards and live chat’s they occasionally had. I knew that Z liked to “get billied” and drink his fair share, but I had no idea his addiction was so serious. Knowing how Z-Man talks and his sense of humor make this book hilarious. Although he finds comedy in the darkest of his addiction, he paints a picture of how terrible and evil opiate, alcohol and pretty much any addiction can be. This book is a must read for anyone who is a fan of Sublime, as Z was their emcee and Read More »
