Drunk Dad, Sober Dad is the reflection on the father figures and mother figures who played a role towards influencing my behaviors in life. Both parties, drunk dad and sober dad, taught me very important life skills and lessons. Using humor and lighthearted stories, I reveal and compare the differing ways these lessons were taught, what I learned from the lessons, how I've used those lessons, and what each of these mentors eventually meant to me.

In a powerful new vision, Dr. Brené Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability and dispels the widely accepted myth that it's a weakness. She argues that, in truth, vulnerability is strength, and when we shut ourselves off from vulnerability - from revealing our true selves - we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.

I found Brene's voice to be easy to listen to but I didn't like the way that she generalises about men and women. She lumps all men together and all women together and implies that all men think alike and all women think alike. I disagree with this. People are individuals and think differently, we are not all the same. I only listened to half of the book and am not going to listen to any more. Perhaps there is more information further on in the book which would be interesting but I am not going to persevere with it.

I really enjoyed this book! It has changed the way that I view my life. I used to think that Loving Detachment was the way to cope with addicts, this book has shown me otherwise. I now realise how wrong I was to try to totally detach from everyone. As Robert stresses in this book, no-one is an island, people need each other. Humans are social creatures & it's healthy to need human company. Although addictions are incredibly tough to deal with, accepting that, & trying to do your best is to be lauded, instead of being accused as being an enabler. I think that the Twelve Step Movement is on the wrong track & this book helps to bring a more sane, & rational approach, to dealing with an addict. Well done Robert Weiss! I hope that this book makes waves, & helps to bring about change in the Addiction Treatment Industry!

The number of affordable, easy links to pleasurable sexual online content is on the rise. Activity increases with the accessibility of technology. So, too, has sex addiction. People struggling with sex, porn, and love addiction typically have little understanding of this incredibly complicated disease. Sex Addiction 101 covers everything from what sexual addiction is and how it can best be treated to how it affects various subgroups of the population such as women, gays, and teenagers.

This is an excellent book for anyone wanting to know about Sex Addiction. It has many stories from actual sex addicts about the different stages of the illness, which are very enlightening. The narrator is clear, interesting, and easy to understand. The book has been very well written, and the author repeats things often, which is useful to get it stuck in your memory. I thoroughly recommend this book!

Learning how to write a book is easy. Learning how to write a book that doesn't suck and can actually make you money - and set you up for a full-time writing career is harder.

But it's nowhere near impossible. And it's far more doable than you can imagine. The trouble is, most books offering tips on how to write a book fail to address two key considersations: 1) Most self-published nonfiction books suck. 2) It's almost impossible to make a living from one self-published nonfiction book.

Quitting destructive drinking is the easy part - staying quit is the hard part. What do you do tonight, tomorrow, next weekend, when you go on vacation, for the rest of your life? Okay, I Quit. Now What? is filled with practical strategies and concepts to make the most out of living sober. Many people expect too much out of life just because they quit drinking. This is an honest and raw view of life after liquor. Living sober can be the greatest thing you ever do - but you must be an active participant in your own Re-Invention to get the most out of sobriety.

I love Mark's honesty and humour. There is a lot to be gained about sobriety from listening to this book. The book also is not a twelve step book, in fact Mark doesn't like the twelve steps, which is a welcome change from most books on sobriety.

Although still considered a taboo subject, sex addiction has become a secretly growing epidemic in today's society. The advent of social media, the easy access to free sexual content on the internet and the ability to remain anonymous in the exchange of these sexual activities has made it very easy for those with addictive personalities to lose control. It is believed that between three and six percent of the American population is suffering from some form of sexual addiction.

The narrator is excellent. The book is good but it pretty much goes over what all of Albert Ellis's books do. It's a great book if you don't know anything about REBT but if you do then there's nothing new here.

Growing up in a home where there is addiction or relationship trauma puts a child at great risk for long-term, post-traumatic stress effects that adversely compromise adult relationships. Best-selling author, psychologist, and psychodramatist Tian Dayton examines this trauma through an exploration of the way the brain and body process frightening or painful emotions and experiences in childhood.

I enjoyed this book. Initially it was quite intellectual but it improved as the book progressed, in that the author used more emotion as the book moved on. I gave it four stars overall as I found the beginning of the book hard to grasp. Overall it's an informative book and I learned a lot from it. There is mention of the 12 steps but very little, which pleased me as I don't agree with the 12 steps.
