This page just keeps getting bigger, my latest addition to the world of recovery are two audiobooks made somewhat controversially using AI.  Have a listen to my intro below and make your own mind up as to whether they are a useful contribution or not. 

My new paperback 'Shortcomings or Character Defects' has had an incredible start especially in Texas, they seem to love it over there.

Our Get Into Recovery 'Beneficial Books' Series has been launched.

These are instructional books, they are organized in a step-by-step format, breaking down the process of learning or doing something into clear, manageable steps. This means they are instructional rather than story-based, focusing on teaching the reader a particular skill or subject matter, rather than telling a narrative.

CBT & the 12 Steps (as I like to shorten this rather lengthy title to) makes a great audio book. 

Have a listen to the general intro here and then a snippet from each of the 12 steps below.

 

It comes in bitesize chunks  and is really easy to listen to when traveling or in between tasks.

TheSponsor's Twelve 

Traditions Manual

A guide to teaching and learning the traditions of AA

by John E

A guide to teaching the 12 Traditions. The Sponsor's 12 Traditions Manual is an approach to delivering the program of A.A. that will help people learn faster and remember more. This leads to greater understanding of the information in the 12 Traditions.

This guide applies established educational techniques (Bloom's taxonomy) to developing an understanding of the 12 Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. This process leads to a structure that progressively improves a persons knowledge and understanding of each of the traditions examined.


Using Bloom’s taxonomy as a powerful tool to help develop learning objectives, we engage the following process of learning:

  • Before you can understand a concept, you must first remember it.

  • To apply a concept you must understand it.


  • In order to evaluate a process, you must have analyzed it. 

  • To create new ideas and sponsor people, you must evaluate your understanding.
