This is definitely a head's up and listen up for women in recovery....using this in conjunction with "A Womans' Way Through the Twelve Steps" is a sure way to add to any other 12 step program that you may be using. I am a person who has been in recovery for 10 years, and found that many women's issues were not being addressed and this combination is an absolute winner. It can be used by yourself, working with a sponsor or in a group ..some wonderful "aha's" have been experienced and so many women helped in this process. Read it...do it....you won't be sorry.

A Woman's Way Through the twelve steps workbook is a great tool to accompany Stephanie Covington's book "A Womans Guide through the Twelve Steps. The questions are insightful and to the point without being overwhelming. I have found these two books to be an immeasurable asset to working the twelve steps.

I have used this book personally and professionally for recovery issues. I can't reccommend it highly enough. If you or someone you care about is in early recovery or even if you are in recovery a long time and could use a refresher, this book is phenomenal. It is written simply, with no "jargon" and is very helpful in guiding you to focus on what you need to in order to live a purposeful and peaceful life in recovery, step by step. Progress not perfection. I give it to all my female counseling clients.

This is a good workbook to do the 12 steps of AA. It is designed for women, by a woman. It gives guidence and suggestions on working the steps. I found it much less intimidating that sitting down with a blank piece of paper. It has an accompaning book of the same title which is also very good, but not neccesary to complete the workbook

Thank goodness for a book written for women in the program. Don't get me wrong but the Big Book was written with men in mind. This has been one of the best tools in my program for understanding the steps in a gentl and softer way.
