    Great book on six and seven

    I really was inspired by this book. If you want to see things different and be different this book will give you some perspective on how to accomplish this. "My defects remind me that there is a God and it's not me". I really enjoyed the personal stories. These two steps can make the difference between just living sober and living a sober and happy life free of your character defects. This book illuminates these misunderstood steps in a way that was easy to understand. It¿s a much needed addition to my recovery library. Thank you.

    Highly recommended

    Drop the rock gives various examples of stories regarding steps 6 & 7 which
    for most people in program, does not get a thorough review.
