Format: Paperback
I gained many insights into my own recovery from growing up in a chaotic family while reading 'Recovery: Plain and Simple.' The honest and authentic sharing of the author's recovery journey has been useful as an entertaining as well as serious source of information, encouragement, inspiration, and validation in the deep work of recoverying the parts of myself lost in childhood. I am delighted to see these talks offered in book form and have shared many segments with other recovering people. Also great by John Lee is 'Growing Yourself Back Up.'

More About the Author

For most of my career I've been writing self-help and psychology books (24 published), but I have also written fiction.

My latest book, The Half-Lived Life: Overcoming Passivity and Rediscovering Your Authentic Self, came out in 2012 and I'm already working on the next one!

In addition to writing I'm also a public speaker, teacher, consultant and life coach. My areas of expertise are passivity, emotional regression, anger management, recovery, relationships, men's issues, spirituality and creativity.

I've been fortunate enough to have been featured on Oprah 3 times and have also appeared on 20/20, Dr. Oz radio program, The View, CNN, PBS, and NPR.

As a consultant and trainer I've worked with The Betty Ford Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, Hanley Center, Guy's Hospital (London, England), The New York Open Center, South Pacific Hospital (Sydney, Australia), Mountain Area Health and Education Center (North Carolina) and numerous others.

Before becoming a writer I was a professor at the University of Texas and Alabama. I live in Austin, TX with my wife, Susan, and an ever-growing group of animals. We also have a home in Mentone, AL.
