FROM ADDICTION TO RECOVERY: By all appearances,  Brian Cuban had it all: education,  successful career, a winning personality. But for years he was  hiding a secret life of addiction that almost led him to suicide.   He’s written a  book:  SHATTERED IMAGE  that delves into his struggle with eating disorders, body dysmorphic disorder and the stigma of addiction.
