Editorial Reviews

Review

Mark Urso clearly describes the perils of addiction with quick wit and deep respect. He grabs it with his pen as if to shake it until its teeth rattle.
The reason I gave this book 5 stars is, the author doesn't mince words. He hits nails on the head on every page, including the subjects of mania and depression in his look at the "Growing Pack of Gum."
The bottom line of the message in this book, (in my opinion) is, finding the similarities in the stories of other addicts is more important than finding the differences. A brotherhood of truth in a simple program for complicated people is the answer. Finding this answer in A Candle Lit can save lives. 
- Joanna Mazzotta, author of "Why Whisper?: A Memoir"

From the Author

My life has led me here.
After 20 years of dutifully helping others, always amidst the borderliners, watching, listening and participating, I arrived at a place where I no longer knew how to help.  But during a process involving many people and a mix of successes and failures, I took notes.
I'm a newswriter by trade and at heart. This turned out to be the hardest story to ever write.  When, one recent day, I laid out five years' worth of "notes" across my bed, a little afraid I was opening a can of worms, the notes fit themselves into chapters, and the chapters fell into place as if almost by themselves. The book is not shy and the conclusions are not easy to find, but even though the notes had been taken years apart from each other, the message coming back to me was rock solid consistent.
I needed to finish the book, and share it.
Thank you for helping. Your reading it is just as important as my writing it, actually probably more important.
This book has some things to say that come from experiences not only sometimes miserable, but also very rare. It's from an AA who can distill a maze of physical, psychological and spiritual ideas after a long career, who's put down his sword and unsheathed his pen. 
Read with vigor, and share with hope!
