Short and dull

The whole first 35% of this book is just reading about the author getting black out drunk with different people everyday who weren't really introduced to the reader. I can some this up: I blacked out today with my college roommate...I blacked out yesterday at a party, I blacked out again and did stupid things that are not disclosed to us, the readers. Boring, you can skip this as there are myriad better books on addiction. If you want I'll supply all the titles.

Very good honest book about being an alcoholic and how AA is not for everyone. Insightful and refreshing.

The first 2/3 of the book is pretty repeticious but the author was laying the foundation for what I found to be "the meat of the book". His conclusions were good and I found them compelling. I learned some things and if the topic interests you I recommend reading.
