AN EMO KID'S JOURNEY... begins today

“Rock Bottom at the Renaissance” Available For Purchase Now

“Rock Bottom at the Renaissance: An Emo Kid's Journey Through Falling In And Out Of Love In And With New York City” is the first book from Mike Henneberger, an Emmy-winning producer with credits from Comedy Central, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Spin, and Vice. 

“Rock Bottom at the Renaissance” is Henneberger’s mixtape memoir about music and mental health, soundtracked by the emo, pop punk, and indie rock bands (Jimmy Eat World, Two Door Cinema Club, Bayside & more) and songs that helped pull him through one of the lowest lows of his major depressive disorder and anxiety disorder.

Each chapter is named after a song that aligns with Henneberger's life written in those pages — either what he was listening to at the time or songs whose lyrics seem like they could have been written just for him.

Lyrics from the song are highlighted throughout the chapter to give the reader a sense of actually listening to the song while reading. It's unlike any memoir you've read before — truly a unique experience.

Some songs included in the "track list" are:
"23" by Jimmy Eat World
"Good Things" by The Dangerous Summer
"Your Heart is an Empty Room" by Death Cab For Cutie
"Duality" by Bayside
