📒Cool Hip Sober ✍ Bill Manville
📝Cool Hip Sober Book Synopsis : In a refreshingly clear-headed and informed approach to addiction, noted writer and radio host Bill Manville sums up what he's learned in more than forty years of research . . . twenty as a demon-driven drunk and twenty in recovery. From his popular show "Addictions and Answers," broadcast from KVML in Sonora, California, Manville has compiled a list of 88 questions and answers from, as he says, "a ton of plain and fancy drunks and dopers and their friends and families." As well, he offers valuable advice and information from his guests: noted psychiatrists, psychologists, rehab counselors, MDs, academics, and more. Here, in first-person detail, are responses to the issues faced by alcoholics, addicts, and their loved ones, such as: · How to intervene with a substance-abusing friend · How alcoholics can protect themselves from relapses · Evaluating therapies, both individual and group · How alcohol affects sex · Definitions of "social drinker," "heavy drinker," and alcoholic · The many faces of denial · Is alcoholism inherited? · How to choose the right rehab · Is there an addictive personality? · What role does spirituality play in recovery? A brave and transformational look at the treatment of chemical dependency, Cool, Hip, and Sober is a captivating, insightful and essential handbook for overcoming denial and achieving a peaceful, long-term recovery. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
📒Letter Perfect ✍ David Sacks
📝Letter Perfect Book Synopsis : David Sacks has embarked on a fun, lively, and learned excursion into the alphabet–and into cultural history–in Letter Perfect. Clearly explaining the letters as symbols of precise sounds of speech, the book begins with the earliest known alphabetic inscriptions (circa 1800 b.c.), recently discovered by archaeologists in Egypt, and traces the history of our alphabet through the ancient Phoenicians, Greeks, and Romans and up through medieval Europe to the present day. But the heart of the book is the twenty-six fact-filled “biographies” of letters A through Z, each one identifying the letter’s particular significance for modern readers, tracing its development from ancient forms, and discussing its noteworthy role in literature and other media. We learn, for example, why letter X may have a sinister and sexual aura, how B came to signify second best, why the word mother in many languages starts with M. Combining facts both odd and essential, Letter Perfect is cultural history at its most accessible and enjoyable. From the Trade Paperback edition.
