The speaker in this Audio Book is great! She puts on accents & speaks like a child, when it is called for. The book itself is interesting & I did learn from it but the author is in favour of the 12 Steps & this put me off. AA is a cult & is sick!

A marvellous book!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I learned so much from it. It is a book for anyone who is thinking about giving up alcohol, or for anyone who has already given up alcohol. It made me realise that sobriety is hard work, & is not all joy but that it is better than boozing, ultimately. I can relate to all of the raw feelings, after giving up drinking. I recommend this book as an awesome, enlightening listen!

A really good story!

I really enjoyed this book! It was funny in places & a very honest look at alcoholism. I recommend this book to anyone struggling with alcoholism, or to people who are close to an alcoholic. Amber also has an open mind in that she does the twelve steps herself but understands that the twelve steps aren't for everyone. I can't stand people who say that AA is the only way, & Amber doesn't do this, she has an open mind.

Breaking Orbit covers everything in the publishing process. If you only follow some of this advice you will boost your Amazon ranking, if you follow all of it, you will increase your sales many times over. I thoroughly recommend this book for budding authors! It is written by someone who knows what he's talking about, as Jonathan Green is an accomplished Amazon author.

Too New Age for me

The author talks about how we all have fields of energy around us and how empaths absorb the energy off other peoples fields. Also she says that everything is energy. I don't like New Age ideas so I didn't get past the first 15 minutes.

Great book!

Mark is a good writer & speaker. He is amusing at times but sincere & honest at other times. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It is short but it is entertaining.

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!

Excellent book!

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!
