Los Angeles, CA, June 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Steve Cederquist, who rose to stardom on HGTV's hit show "Flip or Flop," is launching his new book GET OUT ALIVE: Surviving and Thriving After Drugs, Guns, Gangs, Dysfunction, and Crazy. Published by Ingenium Books, GET OUT ALIVE: Surviving and Thriving After Drugs, Guns, Gangs, Dysfunction, and Crazy will be available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and all other retailers including online platforms starting June 15, 2020.

Cederquist wrote his inspirational and true-to-life story to help others by sharing details of his past, the point he knew his destructive behavior needed to change, and the steps he took to thrive in business and life. His dangerous journey with abuse, alcohol, drugs, crime, and destructive relationships landed him in prison. However, it was the trauma of child protective services moving his kids into foster care that drove Steve to reform

Beyond survival, Cederquist details how he thrived, developing a successful renovation and design company, becoming an award-nominated philanthropist, and a season regular on HGTV's show "Flip or Flop." Cederquist appeared on  20 episodes working with Tarek El Moussa and Christina Anstead, where he remodeled some of the worst-case scenarios for the show. He appeared in the movie "Reason" scheduled to be released this fall as well as many other films, one that was screened at the Cannes Film Festival this past year.

GET OUT ALIVE is just one more way Cederquist works to create positive growth wherever he goes. He hopes his book will contribute to the eradication of addiction problems in North America and perhaps all over the world.
