Summary

Resentment. Fear. Self-pity. Intolerance. Anger. As Bill P. explains, these are the "rocks" that can sink recovery - or at the least block further progress. Based on the principles behind steps six and seven, Drop the Rock combines personal stories, practical advice, and powerful insights to help listeners move forward in recovery. The second edition features additional stories and a reference section.

Either act through love or fear.

As with all books I enjoy, I take away some very pertinent points that bring change in my life.
The message here is one of accountability for ones action and to make sure these actions are performed out of love for ones self and others.

Great book, narration good

I've read the book and high lighted it, it's excellent and really helped me.
The audio seems a bit lightweight but I really enjoyed it.
Thanks all.

One of the best books around recovery ever

This book was recommended to me by many people and I can see why. This has truly helped me move forward in my recovery and is essential reading for anyone doing steps 6 and 7 (but brilliant for anyone no matter which step they are at)

Excellent!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes- I would highly recommend this book to anyone in recovery and in a twelve step program. The focus is on steps six and seven, which as important as they are, can be underemphasized by some people in working through the 12 steps. I will listen to this book time and time again. Well read- narrator's voice is very nice.

Thank you so much!

Faster pace than I prefer, however the voice tone and the content more then make up for it. I'll listen again before doing these steps, which I'm on now.

Right on time, just like God

As I'm working my 6th and 7th steps, this helped put words to the mixed emotions and uncertainty that I was/am feeling. Along with support of my peers, this helped me see that the fear and rebellion that were coming was normal. I was able to feel as one of many and to take inspiration in the journey.

I learned what true humility is and willingness

I can now say that I'm willing to have God remove these defects and I can't wait to see who I am when he does!!!
