I found both of these books as well as others that were helpful to me on Amazon, at prices lower than bookstores.
If you're looking for guidance that offers another path to freedom from addiction, I wholeheartedly recommend Kevin Griffin's books.
May we all be safe and free from suffering.
After almost 30 years of recovery, I found much in this book to recommend and learn from and recommend it to anyone interested in continued spiritual growth. I especially liked the chapter on the 8 fold path! I expect to return to that chapter again and again for continued inspiration and insight. Griffin doesn't make the mistake that some authors about AA and Buddhism have made in attempting to point out the "problems" or "faults" of AA, AA members, or AA meetings. Instead, he simply lays out his own process of recovery and the integration of the spiritual path of both the 12 steps and Buddhism. By the end, I began hoping to see him at one of my meetings just to get to know him. Bravo!
