As a physician addictionologist, I highly recommend this book for anyone in recovery, thinking about recovery, wanting more from recovery or working with recovering people in any capacity. Dr. Berger combines his extensive personal experience with his many years as a therapist to target 12 of the top stumbling blocks people face at any stage of their journey. (These are great lessons for everyone, recovering or not). He makes his points using references from the scientific literature as well as examples from clients and personal experiences. 12 Stupid Things is short, easy, interesting and fun to read and perfect for a recovery tune-up. I actually read it in one sitting!
