There are so many wonderful books and authors frequently mentioned on all the threads, I thought it might be nice to have one place to post them all. Here are a few that might be of interest:
Karen Casey - She is a recovering addict and has a number of books focusing on changing the way you look at things
Marya Hornbacher - "Waiting, a Non-believers Higher Power"
Jane Nelson - "Positive Discipline for Parents in Recovery", It follows the ideas in the "Positive Discipline" approach to parenting, but takes into consideration the effect recovery has on the family
John Gordon - His books are great for the "What Next" aspects of recovery. They are quick to read stories that he uses for a lot of corporate training. I actually heard of him this fall watching football. The 2010 season for the Georgia Bulldogs was awful. Mark Richt, the coach, met with Mike Smith the coach of the Atlanta Falcons during the NFL lockout. Coach Smith gave him Gordon's book "The Energy Bus". Richt liked it so much he had the whole team read it and applied the principles to their season. 2011 they went to the SEC Championship. I figured anything that could turn a whole team around was worth a read.
Look forward to seeing everyone's favorites!
