Rabbi Twerski gives a unique interpretation of 12 step programs
It doesn't matter if you're in AA, NA, OA, etc., this book shows you how to think about the 12 steps in a totally different and entertaining way
One of the best books - he continues to have incredible insight to addiction and recovery whatever your chemical substance of abuse may be
Thank you!

25 of 25 people found the following review helpful By Charles Ashbacher HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 9, 2004
Format: Paperback
The Peanuts© comic strip has long been a favorite of mine, but until I read this book, I had never considered the psychology of the characters. Nearly all of them have severe psychological complexes. Charlie Brown has no confidence in himself, dreads all of life and nothing ever seems to go right. Lucy is so insecure that she has to punch anyone who disagrees with her and Linus has his blanket.

In this book, Twerski uses some excerpts from the strip to demonstrate how to use a twelve- step program to take control of your life. The twelve steps are modeled from the famous twelve-step program of Alcoholics Anonymous. Twerski goes through the steps in sequence, explains what each entails and how to follow it, using one or more strips to demonstrate the point. This is an excellent approach to the construction of a self-help book. The cartoons are effective in emphasizing the points in ways that are very gentle. This lack of intensity is in sharp contrast to some other self-help books that figuratively stick it in your eye.

This book is a bit unusual, in that it is a self-help book with good advice that is just fun to read. I enjoyed it and recommend it to all people, whether or not they are in need of therapy.

I am almost finished reading this book and so far I have found it very practical and helpful. It is a simple book that helps us look at ways to improve who we are and enlists the help of friendly cartoon characters.

Great little book that looks at the 12 steps from a very different perspective. It is must reading for all of my sponsies just to get them to thinking with a more open mind. Great book to help the agnostic find a God of his or her understanding. This book will never replace the Big Book, Basic Text, 12 X 12 or any other program approved literature but it is fun to read and makes its point in a whole different light. I bought 10 of these and I need to get another order... great program gifts.
