This is just awful. The author is very obviously a of 12 step recovery nut who is having a brain aneurism. The book is filled with AA clichés and doctrines, higher powers and rescuing deities. As so common in these groups, he sounds as if he just hates some of his clients who exhibit these "faults." For instance, a depressed person describing his/her pain is likely to be called a whiner. His doctrines certainly have no place in counseling, medicine, or psychology.

However, if you are in a 12-step group you might like this because the abusive attitude and language will feel very warm & familiar to you. Also, for those of you who wish to know the kind of advice you or your loved ones will actually get in 12-step groups, this book will be extremely useful.

An artist might also enjoy using it. My suggestion would be to take it out to a field, shoot it full of holes with a shotgun, attach to a 4' larch post, and let bird paint it with pretty white & gray droppings to brighten the totalitarian colors and enhance the perfect roundness of the shot holes. Then shellac, and display for admirers.
