Anne Fletcher delivers good news to those seeking sobriety in her book 'Sober for Good.' Challenging the conventional wisdom that A.A. is the only way to get sober, she debunks this and several other myths about recovery through the stories of over 200 people. Their stories describe the powerful processes that transformed their lives. This is a book full of hope for the suffering, full of support for the sober, full of answers for the curious. It's a solid contribution to the study of treatment of drinking problems. Raise a pint (of soda) to Fletcher.

I purchased this book last month and just recently finished it. As an alcoholic of over ten years, I finally feel like I'm on my way to recovery. Traditional methods have never worked for me and it's comforting to know that there are alternative ways to recover. Fletcher's personal story provided inspiration, and the stories of the 'masters' gave me guidance.

Great book, but the footnotes aren't live, and the Nook editing seems to neglect any text inside a 'box,' which is really a problem in this text. Someone should fix this, as this is an important and useful text. It's not perfect, some of the case histories get redundant, but it does provide hope for people struggling with sobriety issues when AA isn't working for them. Despite all the good AA does, it doesn't work for everyone, and people deserve to hear they aren't 'crazy' or 'just stubborn' if the format or 'the God stuff' doesn't work for them.

I gambled on this book, in search of support that was NOT "AA, You are helpless, submit to god" based. The author does nothing but give "shallow accounts" of other peoples stories and they inevitably return to the AA (you are powerless) conclusion. If you want an AA; you are helpless approach, go to meetings. If you want an alternative perspective; this book is not the answer. Ironically, to post this review, i could not choose a "no star" rating, i had to stay within the program, and choose a star rating.

The essence of this book (at least within the portion I could tolerate reading) is that everyone has an individual story. It was not at all enlightening on the cause of addiction or how to overcome it. "The Easy Way to Stop Drinking," by Allen Carr is much more useful (although very vebose).
