A must read for those seeking serenity

This is a remarkable book, written by a human being who speaks of the 12 step journey with the humility of a person who has walked this walk himself and the authenticity of one who knows first hand its ongoing benefits. He speaks with passion and does not disguise his own opinions, which makes him more believable, even if you do not agree with all of them. He is not afraid to be himself - which is just what I believe practicing the 12 steps and acquiring its spiritual viewpoint yields. Absolutely recommend this book and intend to keep reading it again and again myself. Thank you!
