    One thought on “The Alternative 12 Steps: A Secular Guide to Recovery”

    1. I enjoyed reading the book. It's a welcome alternative to the archaic, biblical lingo of AA. Being very short it is by its very nature an introduction, a guide. The real work is the work you do yourself. Of course. In that sense this is one of those books you never really finish but keep returning to and using as a natural part of your 12 step work, whatever you're recovering from. That is another great thing about the book: the focus is not solely on alcohol or substance abuse, it's much wider. [...]

    2. Enlightening! Perfect for those of us struggling with the God part. The 12 Steps distilled into the original intent without complications or necessity of a deity. Well written and explained.

    3. Outstanding and excellent book based on the 12-Steps of AA but without all of the religion. No where in this book does the word "God" ever come up, which is so refreshing to me. From a woman's perspective, it is much better than the original steps too as there is no reference to powerlessness and needing to accept and submit. If the Big Book were to be rewritten, this is the template they should use.
