Rewarding Reads: A Gentle Path Through the 12 Steps

Patrick Carnes' guide for moving through the 12 Steps is essential for anyone following a 12 Step recovery program. This great book is packed full of addiction science and insight. It offers a helping hand from the leading expert in the field of sex addiction. It is both fascinating and educational. Though it can't take the place of a sponsor, it is an incredible tool for understanding the 12 Steps and working through them with grace and diligence. It not only has information, it also includes workbook tasks to help you stay on track. My first attempt at recovery failed because I got lost in all of the new information being presented to me. I owe my current success to books like this one that understand addiction and how to relate to addicts. 
It can be purchased on its own A Gentle Path Through the 12 Steps or as a bundle with A Gentle Path Through the 12 Principles
