We have all experienced the urge to repeat what doesn’t work, and as someone has said, it’s the very definition of insanity. Upset about your drinking? Another drink will help you forget the worry. Concerned about your waistline expansion – well one more brownie won’t make a difference. As always with Dennis Wholey’s books, this one is chatty and readable, and includes his consultations with many wise people in the field of addiction recovery and mental health. If you have ever experienced the “compulsion to repeat,” and it is making you unhappy, or if you have just a glimmer that what you think is right for you is not, this is the book for you.
