Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two books address the age-old problem of addiction. Peele, the author of such well-known works in the field as The Meaning of Addiction and Love and Addiction, offers a revolutionary concept sure to make a difference in both self-help and formal recovery programs. Peele emphasizes what he calls natural remission, which allows anyone to overcome his or her disruptive habits. He believes that the core element of an individual, not the treatment or program, is the key to success. His philosophy thus differs markedly from that of AA, which traditionally focuses on an individual's powerlessness. Peele offers the addict both help and information, presenting what he calls building blocks for living and allowing the reader to explore the significance of seven tools (values, motivation, rewards, resources, support, maturity, and higher goals) that form the heart of this book. Well written and well researched, this is sure to be an essential text in the addiction field. Highly recommended for public, academic, and specialized libraries in the health profession. In his work, addictions counselor Prin focuses on addiction to compulsive urges. A recovering "secret keeper," he begins the story of his addiction with his deep childhood animosity toward his mother. The book is interspersed with sections that Prin calls meta-views, which offer thought-provoking questions to help readers better understand a secret keeper's motivation and explore this tendency in their own lives. Told in the first person, the text includes both a table of contents and a reading list and endnotes consisting primarily of Scriptures. Mirroring much of the AA philosophy of powerlessness and the need for a higher power, Prin's work reads much like an autobiography, as readers accompany Prin on his journey to manage his secret-keeping tendencies and face his challenges and successes in finding his own spirituality. Given its narrow focus, this work is best suited to libraries that focus on Christian literature or collect broadly in various types of addictions.-Melody Ballard, Washoe Cty. Lib.
