I first read dr milam's book when it was a 20 page pamphlet given to patients at his treament center in kirkland wa in 1978. I continue to read and refer to it over the years and recommend it to concerned friends and send it to friends in other states who don't have access to a store like powells books. I hope it will be reprinted soon.

This is an excellent discussion of the physical vs pyschological drivers of alcoholism. Makes the case that alcoholism is a disease which has clear and effective treatment solutions. Excellent for the alcoholic, the family, the friends of alcholics. A must read for those on the path of understanding and recovery. Too bad it's out of print. I enjoyed reading it in hardcover.

This book was suggested to me by my counselor while I was in outpatient recovery. The time was right for me to read it, and if you're ready to step out of the darkness and embrace life for real this is a mind blowing tool. If your not an alcoholic or if you are looking to help someone who is suffering from alcohol abuse, this is also a very educational read. Easy to understand and full of information they should have told us about in school. Even if you aren't a problem drinker, once you read what this substance actually does to your brain and body, you may think twice about that after work cocktail. ~Dolores (8 years sober)
