With clear, engaging, upligting and heatfelt brilliance, Tommy R gives a very cool and up to date message about what it truly takes to thrive in recovery. His message comes across true and authentic. He relates this message not only as a recovering addict himself, but also as a sponsor, a coach, a therapist and at times, a friend. Very well articulated and drives home the point that recovery should be about more than just meeting attendance and working the 12 steps. It is in the way you eat, how you take care of yourself, how you cultivate a relationship with a higher power and how you relate to the world. I read alot of books and was unable to put this one down.

Tommy Rosen speaks from his own first-hand experience and what he has discovered through trial and error worked for him to conquer his addictions. He has been creative, brave, introspective, and thoughtful in putting together "Recovery 2.0" and I thought it was great.
