There are lots more reviews on Amazon if you are still unsure if this book can help. The book is small and easy to read. Written specifically for the skittish mind of addicts, or for those who love them and are looking for answers. When we are ill our attention is limited so I wanted to write something that could be picked up and put down and still make sense. It describes addiction as a disease of the mind/thinking, it goes through the tentative halting steps of someone looking for help and also offers testimonials of people who have already found a way out of the hell that is addiction.
