User Review  - Michelle Kohler - Goodreads

I gave this book 5 stars because it's the 2nd time I've read it. And I'll read it again. I had to buy another copy to read it the 2nd time because I gave my first copy away. It's that good. The author leads you to seeing the child inside of you in a gentle loving way. Read full review

John Bradshaw has combined his exceptional skills as the role of counselor, author, theologian, philosopher, and public speaker, becoming one of the leading figures in the fields of addiction/recovery, family systems, relationships, Spiritual and emotional growth. His dynamic training and therapies are practiced all over the world. Born into a troubled family on June 29, 1933 in Houston, Texas and abandoned by his alcoholic father at a young age, John became both an academic overachiever and an out-of-control teenager. He later studied for the priesthood at a Basilian seminary where he remained for 9 1/2 years, leaving just a few days prior to being ordained. During his years of study, John developed a drinking problem, and on December 11, 1965, took a drastic step???he committed himself to Austin State Hospital for the treatment of his dependency to alcohol. John continues to celebrate that day; because that was the day he took his last drink. More at www.johnbradshaw.com
