Arterburn and Stoop have done it again! I’ve been reading their work for 11 years and I’m never disappointed. Besides the Life Recovery Bible this new book is my favorite of their many writing projects.
In Take Your Life Back: How to Stop Letting the Past and Other People Control You Stephen Arterburn and David Stoop take turns sharing life stories to help us learn about our own dependencies and struggles. Not being written in recovery vernacular makes this book a bit more friendly to those unfamiliar with the terminology. It’s primarily written for the co-dependent type (which most of us are) but it still touches on many issues specific to other addicts also. I highly recommend Take Your Life Back for everyone no matter your background or type of struggle. You will find yourself, your issues and answers somewhere in these pages.
