The author, a member of Alcoholics Anonymous who used the 12 steps to reach his own sobriety, leads seminars about putting the 12 step program to work in an alcoholic's own life. This book is a written version of The Spiritual Solution seminars he leads that are intended to take a person through the 12 steps in one day.
John H. does an excellent job of taking excerpts from The Big Book, written by the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous, and using them as a way of explaining the intent of the 12 steps and how they were meant to be implemented. In particular, he stresses the need of believing in a Higher Power greater than ourselves or at least the willingness to believe one exists, in order to break away from the self-centered which is believed to be one of the things at the heart of alcoholism by its founders.
The Spiritual Solution To Alcoholism is an easily read and understood guide to putting the 12 step program Alcoholics Anonymous was founded upon into practice. It is an exceptional tool that may be used alongside the updated version of "the textbook" the organization follows today called Alcoholics Anonymous.
