The short chapters make the book easy to read. I actually started reading this book at about 9am on a Sunday and I didnt put it down till i had read it cover to cover! Unlike other self help books that can go on a bit, Carole made this book really easy to read and even easier to understand.
If you are living with a problem drinker / addict this book is a definate must!
Russell Bishop, Senior Editor at Large, The Huffington Post
One of the worst parts of the role of the enabler in an alcoholic's life is our denial. Carole helps pick away at our worst fears and emerge as a whole person again. For anyone contemplating this book, you will read it and feal a huge sense of calm at the end of the book.
Nothing about our struggle is simple and having our eyes opened in a new way is what Carole's book is all about. I highly recommend it.
