Summary
"My qualification for writing this book is not that I am better than you; it's that I'm worse. I am an addict -- addicted to drugs, alcohol, sex, money, love and fame. This is the age of addiction, a condition so endemic, so all-encompassing and ubiquitous that unless you are fortunate enough to be an extreme case, you probably don't know that you have it. What unhealthy habits and attachments are holding your life together? Are you unconsciously dependent on food? Bad relationships? A job that doesn't fulfill you? Are you numb, constantly perusing your phone, looking for what? The program in this book has given me freedom from all addictions and it will do the same for you. This system offers nothing less than liberation from self-centeredness, a new perspective and freedom from the illusion of suffering for anyone who is willing to take the necessary steps."--Jacket
