Description


Religion was once the primary way to understand human behavior. That was certainly true when the book Alcoholics Anonymous was written in 1939. Be we have learned much over the past 75 years. The author of Common Sense Recovery: An Atheist's Guide to Alcoholics Anonymous describes in a gentle and enriching fashion how the key ingredients of recovery are better understood today via science and secularism. The book takes a close look at the 12 Steps and how and why they can be of help to the suffering alcoholic, and it does this from a modern, uplifting and secular perspective. This remarkable book is long overdue and contains important insights for the future of the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous.
