This is part of a growing secular wealth of discussion about recovery. I know that nonbelievers have always been finding recovery by using the Steps but they have been largely written out of AA history. Hornbacher has a fresh new way to look at recovery that no one with an open mind will find offensive. Doubting is so much more humble and maybe more spiritual that certainty. I think so anyway. I read a review by Joe C on RebellionDogsPublishing DOT com and ordered a copy. I've bought three for gifts since then
