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 clichÃ©s 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.
