Very mixed feelings on this book.

I really didn't love it. I didn't like the writing, the flow. It just didn't click with me as a read. Took me forever to get through it because I just didn't have the desire to pick it up often, found in clunky at times.

On the other hand, I very much liked the various meditations throughout the book and plan on incorporating almost all of them into my own meditation practice. While I wouldn't say I am someone with any big "addictions," I do have plenty of areas o

I finished this book a while back. It's interesting and focuses on mindfulness, meditation, and becoming more self aware. Those are things that likely benefit anyone and everyone no matter what place they're at in their life.

This book focuses on means and methods that can be applied for a variety of actual addictive behaviors ranging from the severe to the small and unobtrusive.

More importantly and attractively, the book does not make attempts to convert one to Buddhism, but only utilizes techn

Al principio del libro leí que la mente debía poder estar en paz incluso en la regadera. Claro que mi mente no está en paz en la regadera, al menos cotidianamente. Cerré el libro por meses.

Sin embargo, con herramientas como el perdón, la gratitud o el contentamiento, la mente puede estar en paz. No es un libro emocionante o completamente nuevo, pero si es un muy buen resumen o guía para encontrar paz aún con todos los malos hábitos o las reacciones impulsivas que normalmente permitimos.

I read this four years ago, and have just re-read it. I think some of the criticisms of it are valid. It does not dazzle, but it is fairly solid. On it's own it is not much, but it has helped me manage addictions, even if only giving me something else to do while reading it for a while. Reading it is a kind of signalling to myself that I really am committed in making change. I think it works best within a wider buddhist framework, so perhaps if you have heard C.Taylor actually speak on the topic ...more

Very formulaic and trite. Nothing ground breaking. Doesn't go into detail at all. Skims the surface and it's all, "you must do this" and "you must do that" but doesn't really go into detail HOW to do it. Worth a skim I suppose.

I read this after attending Venerable Chonyi's workshop on addiction. This book provides a dignified perspective on all addictions and gentle, respectful solutions. The meditations are simple and effective. The book is straight forward and easily understood for non buddhists.
