Book Synopsis



Drop the Rock--The Ripple Effect provides multiple perspectives from people successfully working a Twelve Step Program, showing Step 10 as a key to a sober life free of fear and resentment and filled with serenity and gratitude.

When Drop the Rock: Removing Character Defects was first published in 1999, it quickly became the standard resource for working Steps 6 and 7, two of the most challenging of the Twelve Steps for many people in recovery. Learning what it means to fully surrender character defects frees you to make amends with Steps 8 and 9, realize the Big Book's "Promises," and move on to Step 10.

In this new follow-up resource, Fred H. explores what he calls "the ripple effect" that can be created by using Step 10 to practice Steps 6 and 7 every day and avoid picking up "the rock" again. Drawing on his years of lecturing on the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous and Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, he reveals Step 10 as the natural culmination of working the previous Steps.



Review Quotes




This sequel to the original Drop the Rock is an important book because it extends the discussion of emotional sobriety in a very important wayit encourages us to be aware of ourselves and othershow all our behavior, positive or negative, creates a ripple effect. We cannot have emotional sobriety without an awareness of this fact. When we were in our active addiction we were unwilling to face this truth. If you are going to grow yourself in recovery this becomes an essential element.
