Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Recommended by a therapist friend. I found it very educational and a great adjunct to the 12 step program.
It brings the 12 steps into the present time and broadens the application for the particular issues for women in our society. It would make a very useful tool for all therapists.

Format: Paperback
I was raised in a family where everyone was/is involved in one or more of the 12-Step programs and was taught that attending AA and working the 12 Steps was the only way to stop drinking, or to recover from being a child of an alcoholic. In fact, to my subsequent embarassment, I have preached those rules to people without really knowing what I was talking about. But in spite of this, I have always felt uncomfortable with some of the language in the 12-Steps and other 'conference-approved literature', and this book helped me figure out WHY I was uncomfortable, and also reassured me that I wasn't going to go to hell for not being in a 12-Step program (I'm joking here, but since the 12-step 12-step philosophy is essentially my family's religion, the comparison is apt.)
This book clearly explains the history of the 12 Steps, the original intentions of Bill W. (founder of AA), the ways the steps are implemented in current 12 Step programs, and, very importantly, why they don't "work" for a lot of people (contrary to the message that one gets in AA and other step groups). She also takes a look at the strengths and weaknesses of alternative recovery programs.

Despite the opinions of some other readers, I found the book very non-judgmental - Ms. Kasl doesn't tell people not to go to AA or whatever if it is working for them, and she certainly doesn't tell people that her sixteen-step method is "the way", or that you need to agree with everything she believes. She just points that, contrary to many people believe, "working the steps and going to meetings" is NOT the only way, and there are many people who have gotten and stayed sober without AA.

Format: Paperback
My only regret is that I didn't read this book years ago. Although there is much to be said for 12 step programs (especially in initial stages of recovery), many people feel excluded by them for various reasons. Sadly, they are then told by people in the addiction field and in AA that they "are not trying hard enough" or just "don't want sobriety badly enough" .
Alternatives to 12 step groups are not offered by many treatment centers and counselors so those who do not fit into the mold reeive no guidance or choices. To read a book which not only spells out other options, but sets out reasons why you may not fit in AA is affirmingAlthough I concluded years ago that I would never fit into the mold, this is the first time I have ever had my reality validated. It is refreshing to read a book in the addiction field that encourages thinking outside of the box. This book will save lives - hopefully people will realize they do not have to choose between sobriety and being part of a herd. If you are a therapist and work with alcoholics, addicts, etc. you owe it to your clients to read this book and familiarize yourself with options other than 12 step groups.

This is one of those rare books that can change your life. Not because it's telling you something else new you have to work on or change. Because it's telling you what you already knew before your life got off track and it's affirming your existence.
Any man or woman of color who is in any of the twelve step groups should read this book. You'll want a copy of your own you can write in and highlight as well.
You can tell this was a labour of love for the author and she is to be commended.

Format: Paperback
I found this book very insightful and healing. I am a white male and I had to agree with most of Kasl's feminist views on how the patriarchal system is destructive in many ways. As a natural health practitioner I found one of her most valuable topics was discussing how medical science, 12 step groups and most people ignore that the mind, body, and spirit are connected. Her insights into addictions such as sugar, food, TV, sex, etc. are all right on. This book highlights how to think for yourself instead of submitting to someone elses recovery plans for you that may be damaging. I think everyone involved in therapy and 12 step programs needs to know the information in this book.

Format: Paperback
At first I found Kasl's feminist rhetoric off-putting. However, continued reading convinced me that there is much validity in her analyses; her critiques of AA are convincing; much of what she writes, particularly regarding humility vs. affirmation, in the context of women and minorities, is equally applicable to many white males.
In short, a remarkable book full of good analysis, common sense and human understanding

Format: Paperback
Charlotte Kasl is a no-nonsense writer who expresses herself with wisdom, honesty and guts. Although I did not like to hear part of what I read in Many Roads...I knew what Kasl shared was, and is, true. I am committed to allowing myself to be comfortable with my own inner power and to manifest my full capacity. Kasl's book (like Women, Sex and Addiction) is most helpful in assisting me in my growth and in releasinge co-dependent patterns I learned as a child. Many men (particularly those afraid of powerful women) might find this book very threatening, but, so be it. For women willing to heal and grow, and honest, sensitive men, it's exceptional....
