The Twelve Steps tap into the essential human process of change and will be regarded as one of the intellectual and spiritual landmarks in human history.--Patrick Carnes

With updated and expanded concepts and a focus on the spiritual principles that lead to lifelong growth and fulfilment, Carnes' new edition invites a fresh generation of readers to the healing and rewarding experience of Twelve Step recovery.
