Publisher Comments:

If one or both of your parents were alcoholics ... you are still suffering, and you care not alone.

At least 22 million American adults were raised by an alcoholic parent, and nearly all of them live with scars — both psychological and physical -as a consequence. Coming from homes filled with loneliness and terror, children of alcoholics grow up unable to lead lives free from inexplicable guilt, deep insecurity, lack of self-esteem, and intense sadness. Now there is help.

Chidren of Alcoholism exposes "the terrible family secret" and draws on interviews with over 200 survivors to share the realities of family alcoholism, such as the frequent occurrence of child abuse, the ruined family holidays, the "crazy" fantasylike atmosphere of the alcoholic home. Childern of Alcoholism also discusses in detail how survivors can:

  • tend to become alcoholics themselves, or marry alcoholic partners

  • confront addictive behavior, including alcoholism

  • recognize symptoms

  • openly discuss drinking with their own children

Filled with invaluable techniques for reversing destructive patterns and extensive information on therapy and peer support groups Children of Alcoholism offers objective, sympathetic advice on how to come to terms with the past and how to seek additional help if necessary.

Synopsis:

Filled with invaluable techniques for reversing destructive patterns-and extensive information on therapy and peer support groups-Children Of Alcoholism offers objective, sympathetic advice on how to come to terms with the past and how to seek additional help if necessary.

Synopsis:

Filled with hundreds of specific examples and organized into a coherent framework of practical concepts that can be applied by managers and entrepreneurs at all levels, Built to Last provides a master blueprint for building organizations that will prosper in the 21st century and beyond. In Good to Great, the most widely anticipated management book of the year, Jim Collins presents nothing less than a recipe book on how to make a good company great. Following the success of his international blockbuster Built to Last, where he and co-author Jerry Porras discovered the secrets of companies that were outstanding at their founding and then sustained greatness, Collins wondered what could be done for the company that is good or mediocre at best? He questioned whether there have been companies that started weak and finished strong, and if so, what can be said about these companies that might help managers turn a mediocre organization into a great one? So Collins and his research team undertook a massive five year study of every company that has made the Fortune 500 since the advent of that listing in 1965, and has crafted a book as practical and insightful as BUILT TO LAST. This exclusive deluxe box set brings together the two most important business books of the last decade from Jim Collins, the leader in modern business theory.
