View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Growing up on a pork farm, it seemed unlikely that Doug Tieman would reach his goal of becoming a CEO by the time he was 40, but he did. By applying the lessons that he shares in this book and by working hard, he succeeded.

After 25 years of working in the addictions field, Tieman entered his own personal recovery. That experience gave him an even greater understanding of the stories he had heard from others in recovery who shared what they went through and the efforts they made to pursue a life of abstinence. He also realized that lessons that apply to life, career achievement and recovery aren't all that different from one another. 

Tieman believes that one of the issues many people face is an inability to conceptualize and take methodical steps towards actualizing career goals. He also believes that if more people in recovery could do that, it would bring them to a new level of success that ultimately might benefit the entire addictions field. And that's exactly what this book succeeds in doing for its readers.
