This book satisfies the most important prerequisite for a recovery memoir: it creates hope. Even when I had no free time, I found myself reading and rereading her stories because of the honest and remarkable way she stripped herself of pretense so that others might benefit.”
Addictionland is a “must read” for anyone whose success has been motivated by the whipping stick of perfectionism. I couldn’t put it down. A night’s worth sleep lost, but it was well worth it.”
Cathi Marcus may be writing about recovery from addictions….but this woman IS a drug! Addictionland is compulsively readable and instantly transformative.
Cathi’s experiences are heartbreaking, painful, horrific, true and beautifully written. I hope that all the Cathi’s out there named Sally or Steve who are suffering right now as Cathi did then get a chance to read this memoir and realize there is a way out.”
Anyone who thinks they have heard this story before is mistaken. This book is hard to put down once begun.
Powerful book, written by a powerful woman. Whether it is a physical addiction, or just a series of life events that have placed one in need of healing, Addictionland is a well written journey through darkness with a very realistic and attainable ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ feel to it.
