Description

A (Former) Skeptic's Guide to the 12-Step Program

Knowledge from a personal journey. Experiences with addiction vastly differ, but something can be learned from everyone's journey--especially those who achieve sobriety. Author Bucky Sinister penned this book because he had something to share from his own journey, a realization that completely changed his outlook on recovery. This smart and snide book is his testament to the effectiveness of the 12-Step Program, a path to recovery that he never expected to go down (and work).

A tough-love approach to recovery. As a poet, author, and comedian, Sinister doesn't hold back from speaking the truth in this book. He speaks bluntly about addiction and his own struggles with it. Sinister appeals to those who are turned off by the usual recovery self-helps. He talks straight to readers who struggle to buy into the effectiveness of the 12-Step Program--particularly those like Sinister, an atheist, who have problems with the "higher power" concept intertwined with the program.

A different kind of "self-help". Sinister's book presents itself as self-help, but don't expect it to have the same tone as others you've read. The book is full of Sinister's comedic touch, colorful language, and stories from "scumbags" that contain life-saving wisdom. An unabashed testimony to Sinister's personal journey to sobriety and those of others, this recovery book is sure to educate, entertain, and inspire.

Read Bucky Sinister's Get Up: A 12-Step Guide to Recovery for Misfits, Freaks, and Weirdos and find...
