A guided journey through the 12 Step process. A Principle of Recovery is a look at sobriety through the eyes and heart of Jack Grisham--lead singer of the punk band T.S.O.L., and the author of 'An American Demon'. Grisham has been clean and sober since January 8th, 1989. This book cuts through the myths and misconceptions of what it is to live in recovery and gives us a glimpse into the freedom that being sober can bring. An agnostic libertarian Grisham challenges some of the "cult" like practices in today's groups and encourages you to think for yourself, live without fear, and tap the resource of power that resides within us all. Warning, this book is dangerous to those who enjoy being sheep.

About the Author
Jack Grisham is an author, a front-man, an actor, and a "two-bit" carny hypnotist. As a vocalist for T.S.O.L., and the Joykiller, he's released close to twenty full-length records (yes, I said records, he's been doing this a while) and toured all over the world. Jack has been blamed for enlightening, and corrupting the moldable minds of our youth for years-he has also been credited for influencing many of the top bands of today. As an author he's released three books, all to mostly favorable reviews-no one says Jack is a horrible writer, it's just that they say he brings the horrible to life with such skill that at times you practically need to be sedated to read his prose. 'An American Demon', 'Untamed' and 'Code Blue a Love Story' have all burned their ways into the scary netherworld of the human psyche. As an actor, Jack plays himself, a lovable con-man that you can't help to root for-'Suburbia', 'Let It Rock', 'Punks Not Dead', 'American Hardcore', 'Rage', 'Urban Struggle' and 'The Other F-Word' have all been graced with his almost-as-large-as-life screen presence. Grisham has been clean and semi-serene for over 27 years. He gives motivational talks all over the country and is about to star in his own weekly T.V. program that blurs the lines of God, Motivation, and Flim-Flammery. You can be sure that whatever Jack is involved in it is sure to challenge the senses and inflame the boundaries of what is decent and tame. You can wake up now.
