    #16 out of 8000

    I was checking out the books on drugs and alcohol in the internet, and noticed under addiction, there were nearly 8000 books, this one was number #16, so I bought it, and I'm glad I did. The writer, writes it very simply, no big words, and no professor junk, just down to earth recovery stuff, the way I need it and like it.

    A Path to Sobriety, The Inside Passage: A Common Sense Book on Understanding Alcoholism and Addiction

    I don't think you can get a more plain and easy read for a complex issue as addiciton, or Alcoholism. This writer brings out everything one would ask about this issues involved, and in a humble way. He doesn't go on, and on and on, and bore you. I read his second book on prevention, and it says he is working on a third book called Aftercare, I look forward to the third one.

    A Path to Sobriety, The Inside Passage: A Common Sense Book on Understanding Alcoholism and Addiction

    I am a recovering alcoholic, and I have been sober for a number of years. Most of the books I read, like the 'Big Book', which is great, and a few others have been read and read, this is something new on the horizen. Especially that new "Quantum-Dependency" concept he talkes about. All in all it is a great read, and refreshing, with a lot of humor on a, what I would call, an old thron in my side. I guess it good for the new century. Matter of fact, I suggest the co-dependents read it, and all those who are putting up with guys like me, use to be like me. He has a lot of stuff for you. Good job.

    A Path to Sobriety, The Inside Passage: A Common Sense Book on Understanding Alcoholism and Addiction

    The author tells it like it is, and adds humor to a very serious issue. But then he explains he was part of the cycle himself for some 20-years. He explains in stories, and comparisons the results of addiciton from Alcoholism, to sex, drugs and eating disorders; and its relationship to crime. I see he is the author of several books. It seems to me he has worked in the field for some 30 years.
