I've been reading the free download but on the strength of that have just bought the book. Adrian Hayward clearly writes from a wealth of experience of many traumas which most of us never want to have. His account of getting his life together, despite all of that, and learning how to overcome the effects of his past are inspirational. I hope that many people read the book and are helped by it to follow in Adrian's footsteps.

This book represents the kind of guide to change that is refreshingly realistic and honest. The author wants you to get to the heart of the matter and the journey he takes you on is informed and well laid out. The author's honesty and tone, coupled with his real life challenges shared with integrity, seek to demonstrate an individual's rewarding message - learned the hard way - but freely shared. I really resonated with this book and I wholly recommend it!

Editorial Review


This book is a self help transformation guidebook on how to overcome your ordeals like addiction, abuse, alcohol dependency and other issues against the backdrop of your everyday life. The author narrates his life struggles to enable the reader to visualize the almost horrifying issues that he overcame in order to finally hope to lead a successful life in the future.


A very honest, compelling and engaging style that invokes in you an inspirational feeling and a sense of hope to overcome challenges like drug addiction, abuse, alcohol dependency, mental and other issues. The protagonist is the author himself who describes the horrifying ordeals he went through and how he overcame them. He gives us confidence that we too can do the same, if we develop our willpower and focus on overcoming our issues as per the steps and guidelines outlined in the book.

The author has supplemented his practical advice with well researched links and sources that give further help and insight.

The overall theme and the message of this book is light and positive despite the dark experiences shared.

I liked the honest attempt at trying to explain extremely difficult and complex pitfalls of life that defy explanation, and especially the author’s great persistence and wisdom to finally overcome them and lead a successful life.


The book is a practical self-help transformation guide to a rich and accomplished life. The author shares his complex and difficult experiences, how he grew up facing abuse, drug addiction, mental illness, physical pain, and a host of other issues which many people do not face in their entire lifetimes. He also recounts how he had to live through an almost Sisyphean ordeal of relapsing into his former state many times till finally he overcomes them and is on the way to becoming more successful in life.

He demonstrates his passion to help other people overcome their dark ordeals by sharing his learnings through his book, blog and other media.

And yet he shares all this with us in a breezy, honest and easy style.

Dig Deep focuses on how to survive your dark moments in the trenches, how to stand tall after overcoming them, and finally how to avoid relapses. 

The author believes in the goodness of wealth that is inside each one of us – our individuality, inner direction and the intuition that guides us in our everyday life. A practical guidebook that stays with you all through your battles.

I recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with their personal dark ordeals and is looking for an honest, courageous and permanent way to overcome them and lead a successful life.

This process is all about structural integrity. And, whether your life thrives or collapses is all down to how sound your foundation is.

Everything achieved by effort must be maintained by effort.
And everything achieved at rest can be maintained at rest.

Never settle unless there’s something worth settling for.

One of my favourite things to say to myself is that “I can become someone who can....”. Right now, I may be overwhelmed by trauma, unable to sleep, fearful that I won’t actually finish this book. But, I can become someone who can overcome all those things. This focuses attention on the now and on continual progress rather than events and milestones.
