5.0 out of 5 stars Healing the Unconscious 30 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I got the book as a reference from one of Keating's book. It is fantastic!! I recommend that all who face any disturbing addiction to read this book and indeed if you think you don't, read it and you will be surprised what you are addicted to. May shows the neurological aspect of addictions and very important he discusses the travials that occur during recovery. How your body adapts and readapts to habits and substances.
He says the root of the problem is in the psycho-toxins in our sub-conscious and recommends grace and contemplative prayer as a remedy. Where we let go of trying to solve it ourselves and allow God to heal us, to heal from the root. Here is where keating's book is useful for keating then expoundes on Mays recommended contemplative prayer namely, the prayer of silence of letting go.
The healing takes time and if you are looking for a quick fix, then forget this but if you want a root solution then pick this up. May says the beginning of a solution is when you say "I have a problem, I need help", God the healer, awaits to help you. May shows how to make an appointment, keating shows how to have a session and take the anti-bodies.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best blend of psychology and religion 9 Jan 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
May has accomplished what many serious analysts of contemporary culture have been unable to pull off satisfactorily. He presents a brilliant exposition of the causes and process of inordinate attachment and then proceeds to reveal its cure which is an essentially spiritual process. His exposition of the necessary relationship between psychology and religion, while explaining the limits and possibilities of both, is a triumph. The writing, though dense, is clear and poetic. His book is a handbook for the serious human person.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very insightful. 7 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I found this book to be very insightful and informative. I had a bit of a problem with what I feel are extremely wordy paragraphs that take too long to get to the point. However, I found all of the answers I was searching for and then some.

Format:Paperback
Far and away the most fascinating and provocative
book on the psychology of addiction. Takes us deep
inside the brain to show how and why addictions
work at the cellular level... then, in a macro-view,
what the central spiritual root of addictions is...
and why they are so difficult to change. Adds
a fresh new dimension of insight to the hidden
challenges of the recovery process.

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A classic in its field, May's book draws on everything from neurological data to
the Gospels to examine the pervasiveness of addiction in human experience.
May is on staff at the Shalem Center in Washington DC and has written widely
on the interface between psychology and spirituality. This is far from a popular-lever
paean to the recovery movements; it will leave you wondering
about the amount of freedom in your life.
