I do have a couple of reservations. Bradshaw is firmly rooted in the concept of God - although he is writing for a US audience, where levels of religious belief are higher than in the UK, it does grate occasionally. To be fair he states that "God" can mean whatever you want it to mean and he does not promote this or that religion - however there are Biblical quotes littered liberally through the book so draw your own conclusions. Personally I am a humanist but I had no trouble looking past The God Thing; it's still a great book. And of course the reference to a higher power is an integral part of the 12 steps programme, which Bradshaw draws upon. It's just something to bear in mind if, like me, you have negative experiences of organised religion which actually contributed to your shame. Don't dismiss it out of hand but be aware.
He manages to reframe difficulties is a personal yet credible way and work towards strategies and solutions to help those who struggle. He is clearly a very academic man but this does not alienate the reader.
I will be reading his other titles.
