Rogue Irishman is about a man who was raised in the nineteen fifties in an alcoholic Irish family and spent the first half of his adult life dealing with narcotics addiction. Raging out of control in his late twenties he turned to 12 step programs and they saved his life. This transformation inspired him to become a professional therapist and he has spent the last 35 years of his life in private practice as a licensed counselor. His journey to perfecting his craft lead him to Irish touch healers in Dublin, Native American medicine men in North Carolina, Qigong Masters, Aikido Sensei and teachers like John Grinder, Milton Erickson and Gregory Bateson. His book is a combination of adventure, failure, transformation and eventual harmony. It is interesting to both recovering people and anyone who likes a good story combined with useful insights into human nature.
