The 12 Steps to Happiness

"Many of us working the Twelve Steps may sometimes wonder, 'Am I really working my program to the fullest?'  Though the Steps themselves are simple, the individuals working them are infinitely complicated.  The rigors of recovery can get the best of us, distracting us from the program that will lead us back to health.

"In this expanded edition of his classic handbook, Joe Klaas breaks down the language of each Step, explaining the resistance's and misunderstandings that might arrive when working that Step.  Each chapter is a conceptual blockbuster that invites us to explore for ourselves the Step's true meaning and to reflect on the impact it will have on our lives.

"A useful touchstone for anyone recovering through an Anonymous fellowship, THE 12 STEPS TO HAPPINESS can help us find the tools to work our programs.  And for those of us who simply yearn for a more sane, healthy way to live in an increasingly chaotic world, the Twelve Steps can lead to a better way of life."
