some interesting points
Thought provoking disagree with some of the content could be misleading for people struggling with addiction being part of an AA group has far greater successful outcome of over coming addiction this book seems to undermine the true benefits of AA recovery and tries to portray the science of addiction which has not been that successful ask any psychotherapy or psychiatric proffesional how successful have they been in treating addiction compared with AA success rate.

The best books are those that tell you what you already know
A very well-written and highly convincing articulation of what most of us already know deep down: all behaviors are choices, even difficult, destructive and unpleasant ones.
