I have been a counselor in addictions field for 7 years. I found this book to be amazing, it opened my eyes to the steps in a way that I hadn't seen before. The stories are a great mix in the book and brings out what the authors' are trying to get across. I thought the three patterns of addictions that is written in the beginning of the book really fits. I am eager to hear more, keep writing. Nikki W.

I have been in recovery for 14 years and am an avid reader of 12 Step recovery materials. After reading this book I was impressed with the authors' view on addictions that I hadn't heard before. The material covering the 12 Steps was incredible, I found myself ready to work the steps again with this new and deeper perspective of my recovery. The Website is also a treat and has the ability to download worksheets for Step work, just what I was looking for. My husband also read the book and he has suggested it to several people that he sponsors.
