Overall, for professionals seeking to gain an insight into the psych of the alcoholic, this is a book well worth reading.
This might be the best recovery autobiography that I have read, thanks to thoughts and reflections penned by the author as a stream of consciousness in an intermittent diary of his first three years free of alcohol dependency…Like most writers, McCully is voraciously questioning about what has shaped his world, and people like him. He searches websites and shares highlights of information. He garners advice from professionals and peers in recovery, and peppers them with snippets about alcoholism overheard on the radio or scanned in newspapers. "I am trying to learn to be happy and I feel very much better," he concludes. We get a picture of the person he has become - and that is someone I, for one, would like to meet.
Praise for the book: 'It was like the best kind of company, like having a recovery meeting available every day.'
