✏Sober Stick Figure Book Summary : Surrounded by alcohol and alcoholic strangers and alcoholic relatives her entire childhood, Amber never stood a chance. But for a long time she was an overachiever and a functional alcoholic. None of her relatives suspected a thing because in her family, the men were the alcoholics, not the women. After her dad died of the disease, she spiraled completely out of control -- 'Leaving Las Vegas drunk,' as she puts it. She hit rock bottom seven years ago, joined AA and has been completely sober since. The book spans from her first drink at the age of seven to a year following her sobriety. By telling the tale of alcoholism and recovery through a seemingly light, entertaining, child-like read -- and illustrated throughout with crude stick figures in crayon - Sober Stick Figure draws the reader into Amber's hard fought journey with wit and poignancy.

✏SOBER JIM Coma Canes Courage Book Summary : This spirited tale with a twist is a true account of "Sober Jim's" life.

He was never one to take situations lying down! Pat Occleshaw was elected founding president of the Southern California Head Injury Foundation, Inc. (SCHIF) in 1982.

✏Cool Hip Sober Book Summary : 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.

✏Letter Perfect Book Summary : A fun, lively, and learned excursion into the alphabet—and cultural history. Letters are tangible language. Joining together in endless combinations to actually show speech, letters convey our messages and tell our stories. While we encounter these tiny shapes hundreds of times a day, we take for granted the long, fascinating history behind one of the most fundamental of human inventions: the alphabet. The heart of the book is the 26 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 the letter X has a sinister and sexual aura, how B came to signify second best, why the word “mother” in many languages starts with M, and what is the story of O. Packed with information and lavishly illustrated, Letter Perfect is accessible, entertaining, and essential to the appreciation of our own language.

✏Caught in the Ack Book Summary : "Not exactly what I had in mind for the twilight of my mediocre career." This is Mike Quinns thinking when the hardboiled Nantucket police chief finds himself enmeshed in a mid-summer crime spree that quickly escalates from the disappearance of a vacationing child to a full blown terrorist threat against the President of the United States. Wrestling with old demons, Quinn detectives his way forward from the retrieval of the lost child to the discovery of hidden island bunkers, caches of jet fuel and heat-treated rocket parts. Despite his best efforts at maintaining mid-summer normalcy, however, the Chief soon sees his island overrun by an army of vigilantes, federal agents and quirky island rats. While Special Agent Cynthia Quinn, the Chiefs ex-wife, arrives from Washington to open as many old wounds as possible and young Agent Chloe Chigas appears to inspire and help, Quinn is ensnared in new love with bad-girl-turned-good ex-con Andie King. And displaying the deep pockets and bitter resolve to avenge his lost daughter, international businessman Joe Black adds to the chaos by bringing to the island every gun-slinging Rambo his credit card will buy.
