Full disclosure here: I am an audiobook narrator, and I just finished reading (out loud) and recording this book for Tantor Media (should be released in August 2014), so obviously had no choice but to read it cover-to-cover!
That said, I found it very illuminating and helpful. I was married to an alcoholic, and am also the Mom of a son with schizophrenia (not an addiction, obviously, but sometimes behavior modification tools are so valuable with other issues especially where relationships can be helpful). The concepts and suggestions in this book really opened my mind to think beyond the black-or-white thinking that can close us off to all the options in between.
It also reinforced what I learned about helping my son in his treatment for schizophrenia - family can be a huge asset, when exposed to ideas, resources, information and support that truly make a difference.Ben Behind His Voices: One Family's Journey from the Chaos of Schizophrenia to Hope
