DR. Jean Kirkpatrick, author, lecturer, and sociologist, was widely recognized as an expert on alcoholism in women. She is also the author of Turnabout.From Library Journal:
Written for the estimated 5 million women alcoholics in the United States, this book vividly describes the pain of alcoholism, stages in the recovery, and keys to "the good life." Kirkpatrick, founder of the Women for Sobriety support group program, outlines steps women must take to recover fully, including understanding depression, overcoming guilt and low self-esteem, and developing tools for living the "good life"exercise, meditation, and nutrition. While the author often seems to be looking for causes for the drinking outside the alcoholic, her recommendation is to "take charge of your life"the shaping of ourselves into the best we have to offer and then offering it to others." This is a fine book for the woman in trouble with alcohol and looking for help. Francia Schultz, Alcohol Certificaiton Training Program, St. Herman's Seminary, Kodiak, Alas.
