"This is the paddle you don’t want to be up the creek without”- Don Fultz, recovery expert
“The premise of this intelligently written title is bound to cause some controversy. Recommended for popular psychology, self-help and recovery collections” – The Library Journal
“Offers strategies that can help people struggling with addictions develop the skills and abilities they need to make clear, effective choices about their own lives – with or without the continuing support of a formal recovery group.” – Yoga Journal
“A therapist’s prescription for avoiding addiction to a recovery group.” – New Age Journal
“Hope of freedom, self-confidence and completion to people in self-help or 12-step recovery programs who have been told they will never be fully recovered.” – American Bookseller
“A manual for those in self-help programs” – Publisher’s Weekly
“The Real Thirteenth Step contains a wealth of astonishingly practical information. Very few therapists can provide better tools for personal growth” –San Francisco Bay Guardian
“A well written, important book that provides an invaluable corrective to the dependency orientation of the recovery movement. It lucidly points the way to the next step: the cultivation of independence and personal autonomy. Imperative reading for every graduate of the twelve-steps.” -Nathaniel Brandon, PhD, Psychologist, author of Honoring the Self
