Cathi Marcus may be writing about recovery from addictions….but this woman IS a drug! Addictionland is compulsively readable and instantly transformative.

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.
