Susan Powter's writing is what I'd call jumpy, disjointed, and in the style of 'stream of consciousness', which I don't like unless it's exceptionally well done (and this is not.) It's hard to appreciate the content when the writing style overshadows the content in a distracting fashion.

This is the lady who became a fitness guru and later an alcoholic.
She is hyper, aggressive and always seems to be yelling.
Her mantra is that you can’t stay sober without proper nutrition, as it creates a physiological state which makes you drink again. Wow!!

Terrible writing

I don't know why but it bugs me when she keeps saying "I'm alcoholic.". What ever happened to the word "an"? As soon as she mentioned epileptics as being more worthy as a disease than her I was done.

I learned so much from this book that I never knew and I am in the medical field. It helped me understand the reactions from a loved one and now I can deal with my own feelings as I help him.
