bookshelves: 3-4-star-adult-nonfiction

Not sure it's a 4-star, but higher than a 3...Fascinating insight into the life of an addict, as another reviewer stated. Thankfully, many of us don't know those details. However, I was not disappointed in Edward Grinnan's honesty, given his position as editor of Guideposts...I was humbled. ALL of us have our flaws and stumbles. If I held a job such as his, I'm not sure I would have the courage to describe my dark side so fully. Grinnan deserves to be admired and respected for the effort he has made on life's journey, and I hope his story helps someone else. Beyond his personal saga, the nine qualities he outlines that are necessary for personal change are valid points and worth considering for how they apply to life.
