I don't if books help people. However, certain books have made me better. The first book I would recommend for anyone to read is The Book of Secrets, by OSHO. All I can say is this. It's the most interesting and informative book I ever read in my life. It's a spiritual thing. I bought a book about overcoming addiction awhile ago. It just occurred to me post this one about overcoming addiction. http://amzn.to/1zyG3Up. It's not for everyone. It blends spirituality with an approach to help in the addiction journey. You will not find a step by step approach. However, Deepak Chopra is a leading authority on spirituality and holistic healing in America. Just sharing. If you have a book that has helped you. Go ahead and share!
