Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The director of a Texas clinic that specializes in treating chemical dependencies and family problems, Wegscheider-Cruse gears this guide specifically to adult children of alcoholics and generally to anyone suffering from low self-esteem. She offers a definition of self-worth``my valuable identity deserving all good things''and urges readers to change damaging habits, rethink past experiences and develop new behaviors that enhance emotional growth. Her detailed advice is sometimes sensibleto raise self-worth, she writes, we need to become aware of of the ``forces of our past which have held us back.'' But sometimes she is unhelpful, as when she suggests that those who cover their low self-worth with compulsive busyness ``make home-made bread'' or ``build a birdhouse.'' (April)

I have used this book for over two years at the MCF (Monroe Correctional Facility) and find it to be both informative and motivating. I am able to skip around between chapters depending on the issues of the inmates. Many individuals want copies of the book to read up on their own lifestyles that are portrayed in the book with examples related to others that fit their own situation. The reading about "me" is particularily significant when used with other materials as a part of the recovery process.
