Publisher's Summary

Millions of people worry that drinking is affecting their health, yet are unwilling to seek change because of the misery and stigma associated with alcoholism and recovery. They fear drinking less will be boring, involving deprivation, difficulty, and significant lifestyle changes.

This Naked Mind offers a new solution. Packed with surprising insight into the reasons we drink, it will open your eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture. Annie Grace brilliantly weaves psychological, neurological, cultural, social, and industry factors with her extraordinarily candid journey resulting in a must-listen for anyone who drinks.

This book, without scare tactics, pain, or rules, gives you freedom from alcohol. By addressing causes rather than symptoms it is a permanent solution rather than lifetime struggle. It removes the psychological dependence allowing you to easily drink less (or stop drinking). Annie's clarity, humor, and unique ability to blend original research with riveting storytelling ensures you will thoroughly enjoy the process.

In a world defined by never enough; Annie takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of alcohol and specifically the connection between alcohol and pleasure. She dispels the cultural myth that alcohol is a vital part of life and demonstrates how regaining control over alcohol is not only essential to personal happiness and fulfillment but also to ending the heartache experienced by millions as a result of secondhand drinking.

Finally, with perfect clarity, this book opens the door to the life you have been waiting for.

Listen to this book. You'll be glad you did.

    "wow"

    i am a 50 yr old male and i have reached a crossroad in life, i am re assessing the past, the now and what the future holds for me. this book has opened my eyes to the harm that alcohol can wreak on our bodies, something i was in denial of and something i did not want to understand because i was 'enjoying alcohol'. life throws some horrid stuff our way and we can create our own downfall too, along our journey we can be told by loved ones, friends, and aquaintences that alcohol does not suit you, its changing you, you arent doing yourself any favours but i now know that as an individual it was up to me to come to terms with it, acknowledge it and accept it before i could confront it!! that time for me is now. i recently met a friend who shared their story with me and their struggle and was very moved by it, i knew i had a problem but i did not want to take it on board, my life has revolved around drink for 35yrs, i would not say i am an alcoholic but i know and feel that i am on the slippery slope to becoming one. this is an awesome book written by someone that has walked the walk and can truly say it how it is, i respect you for shared story and for how many people will benefit from reading or listening to this book. thankyou

    Story
    "Plagiarism, but still relevant"
    Would you try another book from Annie Grace and/or Daisy Long?

    Possibly, if I hadn't read the books that she stole her concepts from.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    "Hmm.."


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Daisy Long?

    No, she sounds pretty lifeless the whole time.


    Any additional comments?

    This Naked Mind is literally the 'best of' summaries of both Alcohol Lied To Me by Craig Beck and Allen Carr's Easy Way To Control alcohol. Excerpts are lifted with and without proper citation, and the entire basis of the book is plagiarized from Allen Carr.

    I still enjoyed the book for what it is, but it literally brings nothing new to the table and my review should serve as a warning to those who have already read the aforementioned books; this is just a reiteration, and nothing more.

    "Pretty good but not very original"

    I had read Carr's The Easy Way to Quit Drinking a few months ago and it incredibly helpful and energizing and fueled me to quit. Alas I stumbled and relapsed after quitting was so easy I thought I didn't have a problem. Instead of rereading The Easy Way I heard this book recommended. I found it somewhat helpful but the most compelling arguments lean heavily on Carr's. I was hoping for fresher look at the science but was underwhelmed by the amount of content focused on our latest understanding of the causes of alcohol dependence and it's effects on the body.

    "plagarism"

    It sounds like a reiteration of Allen Carrs book "the easy way to quit drinking".

    "The book the world needs"

    I did not consider myself a "problem drinker", but read this book to understand what a friend was going through. However, the author clearly and powerfully demonstrates in this book that there can only be problem drinking.

    The methodology in this book of breaking free from alcohol by tearing down the structure of lies built up in our collective subconscious about alcohol can and, I hope will, change society in a profound way.

    If you consume alcohol at all, please read this book with an item mind.

    "A Miss"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes, the structure, the Author's writing is really smug with no apparent reason.


    Was This Naked Mind: Control Alcohol worth the listening time?

    No, part of it was good but the rest was tiring and demagogic

    "Its Over!"

    My relationship with Alcohol its over. I originally read this book to help my husband...a heavy drinker maybe cut down or stop all together, and this book made me examine my drinking habits...One at night to unwind turns to two or three etc...Friday night excuse, work to hard excuse..what ever excuse you can use.
    We had a daughter addicted to drugs living on the streets near death at at times. My doctor said...let me give you something for your nerves I said no! No drugs...She said well have a glass of wine at night to relax...Yes that was a true diagnosis from my Doctor.
    No more. I am clear headed and thankful every single morning that I will never touch a drop and never miss it. No more feeling terrible and wondering why. ( And the10 pounds i dropped was an added bonus. )
    Thank you Thank you Annie Grace!
