HASH(0x9a1dbac8) out of 5 stars A wonderful book! June 1 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was attracted to the many well-known names listed on the cover, but once I began reading the book, I was overwhelmed with its passion and solutions. David Dodd has done a remarkable job which is reflected in this collection of interviews. My favorite part, however, is the introduction to the book, where the author tells his personal story on how he became sober with the help of Steven Tyler. His vivid description of the events were astonishing to me, they were absolutely incredible. This is a wonderful book!

I had heard that this was a good book and I definitely was not dissapointed. Reading about how others in the media deal with their addiction gave me courage, strength and hope that I can grow in my quest for a long spiritual and sober life. I highly reccommend it!Playing It Straight: Personal Conversations on Recovery, Transformation and Success

HASH(0x9a63b330) out of 5 stars Inspiring true stories of recovery Jan. 28 2001
By middlemoo - Published on
Format: Paperback
David Dodd has assembled a wide variety of stories to inspire and encourage addicted people to get clean. I was impressed that Twelve Step groups were NOT the focus of every tale, and that the one constant was that each individual made a PERSONAL CHOICE to forego their addiction and live sober. For all the help some people get from 12-Step groups, there are many who don't "relate" to the religiousity. But this book shows that recovery is still possible and worthwhile. The fact that most of these tales are told by celebrities and artists we KNOW only increases their value. Plus, it's nice to know that my gut feeling about Steven Tyler is "on the money" - he truly IS a mensch!!
