    Part of the very many difficulties encountered by people trying to work 12 step programs is the strong tendency in groups to prescribe orthodoxy. The 12 steps as treated in the Big Book and the 12 and 12 always left me feeling like there had to be more. Rami Shapiro is a Rabbi who is works a 12 step program. This book is not only very accessible but right to the point, it would be of substantial help to anyone trying to work their way through a 12 step program and would be of use and interest to [...]

    Interesting, helped me broaden my understanding of the steps for he made several errors, as I conceive the Program. But learned to say 'well, that is one way of looking at it'.Key error is in the use of the word understand versus understood in the conception of God. Many implications flowed from this error.

    This is a book in the polytheology that is born out of the 12 steps “god of your understanding” philosophy. But the author is clearly read in the world religions and does present this polytheology in an intellectual and some what systematic way.

    Amazing. This is my new favorite book. I have been working the 12 steps for 18 months, and this book helped me understand them in a much more in-depth way. Some steps I never quite 'got' now make perfect sense to me. It took me a couple months to munch through the heavy topics, covering a wide array of religions and spiritual practices, as well as agnosticism and atheism. The author is a rabbi with a food addiction, so he comes from a different vantage point than mine (an agnostic alcoholic), ye [...]

    I heard a spiritual director at a local treatment center describe this book as the best book on spirituality he'd ever read. I'm working my way through it slowly but now that my sister is reading it I might have to pick up the pace, because, while I'd like to enlarge my spirituality, at heart I'm still very competitive. Finally finished it, not because I didn't like it but because I took time between chapters and practiced many, but not all, of the recommended exercise/practices. Great book for [...]

    An ok read- it's always fun to have additional ideas to think about and to help me keep my mind open to other philosophies. But he made me think he didn't know the Big Book very well when he stated that "Bill W. didn't give explicit instructions in the 11th step". Malarkey!!! The 11th step as written is vague: we continue through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with our higher power. Sure that sounds vague until you read the big book which gives direct and specific instruc [...]

    Shapiro's perspective is that all of us are addicted: to playing God, or living under the illusion that life is controllable, and if we just do the right things, work harder, correct our mistakes, we can control life. And eventually, when we fail, we mask our failure with physical or psychological addictions--the usual suspects--escaping reality and maintaining the illusion that we are in control. A book to beneficially read again and again!

    As a therapist who works with recovering addicts, I find Shapiro's books very helpful. Spiritual Recovery had given me tools to help me with self care and to teach to my clients to deepen their 12 step work and spirituality.

    Accepting the concept of "higher Power" is really difficult for those of us who are not Christian or religious. Rami, a Rabbi himself, draws on many beliefs and mythogical ideas to investigate each of the 12 steps from a spiritual perspective. I found it really helpful and insightful.

    Nancy
    "First of all, we have got to stop playing God." Good to learn how.

    Jana
    Fantastic thought-provoking look at the spirituality of the 12 steps. I appreciated Shapiro pointing out the commonalities of various faiths. Highly recommend to any 12-stepper!
