"Why try?" we sometimes ask ourselves when faced with the uncertainties and hard work of recovery. But the answers are all around us, in the rich and spirited lives of those who have made the journey before us, each one a member of the joyful possibilities that await. These possibilities come alive in Gifts of Sobriety, a book that gives immediate meaning to the Big Book's promise: "We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness." In this book Gifts of Sobriety, those who have freed themselves of alcohol or drug addiction share the gifts that sobriety has given them. Their stories are, in turn, a gift-for those who have made the journey and for those who, just embarking, seek gladdening news of the good life to come.

This book is very important to me because it is so different then any other on this subject. It helps to make a difficult subject easy to discuss with family and friends. There is no other book that compares the twelve steps with the twelve promises. I reccommend it for everyone, not just for people in recovery. It makes my heart smile.
There is good informtion in the book but for me It was difficult to read because she used a LOT of big words. I scored the highest in vocabulary on my highschool exam but I just found it very hard to understand this book because of the big words so I didn't enjoy it.
