Most of us in long-term recovery know the Steps so well that we could easily rattle them off from memory, wrapping up our recitation with the familiar and practice these principles in all our affairs. But what are these principles? Exactly what principles are the Steps calling us to practice? Which principles do we practice when working a particular Step? Faced with any number of situations in our daily affairs, how readily do we discern the principles involved, and how well then do we live them out? In AA practicing these principles is the fulfillment of the 12 Steps. It is the programs prescription for the good life, a life of spiritual growth and emotional sobriety that we share with our fellows, helping to bring healing to the alcoholic and to others who suffer in our midst. Yet, though crucial to recovery, many of us are not really sure what these principles are, and their connection to the Steps remains a gray area, in AA and probably in other fellowships as well. This uncertainty spills over into another and related gray area: the relationship between the spiritual, the moral, and the emotional in recovery, and how these are tied to character growth. Because these links too are unclear, emotional sobriety remains a distant and elusive goal for many of us long after we have stopped drinking. We may be sober (or clean, or otherwise abstinent), but our lives are at best manageable and tolerablesometimes not even that. Practice These Principles brings clarity to the relationship between Steps and principles, offering a comprehensive understanding of what these principles are and how we can practice them in our daily affairs. Its purpose is to help us work the Steps in all their fullness so that we can grow in character, achieve spiritual and emotional healing, and see the Promises fulfilled at last in a life that is happy, joyous, and free. - From the back cover

A 21st century look at addiction and recovery, Beyond Belief is the first daily reflection written for everyone, regardless of ones worldview. Over 500,000 daily reflection books are bought every year. There are specialty books for women, men, youth, newcomers, people who love addicts/alcoholics and substance or process specific addictions. Beyond Belief is the first in the genre that includes humanists, agnostics and atheist into the Twelve Step/Twelve Tradition dialogue. Drawing on philosophy, psychology, art, science, the wisdom of the rooms and existing Twelve Step and recovery literature ,Beyond Belief offers 365 one day musings with a 21st century slant at life in recovery. An index of over one hundred subjects, end notes and a bibliography offer readers extensive resources if they have a more in-depth appetite for a certain subject than offered by a one-page thought for the day. John McAndrew, MDiv of Sensible Spirituality Associates, Palm Springs CA says, "Thank you Joe for this wonderful place to start each day. No arguments about God, no belief systems to defend or attack--just a wealth of rich, thoughtful reflections." Ernest Kurtz, author of Experiencing Spirituality and Not God: A History of Alcoholics Anonymous, says, "The book is aimed at a general 12-Step readership, but it is mindful that there heretofore exists no such aids for unbelievers, freethinkers, and the unconventionally spiritual. Given that the latest Pew survey found that twenty percent of American people list their religion as 'None,' it is certainly time that the Recovery world took into consideration this population's needs. Beyond Belief addressees that need in a confident, non-aggressive way. I doubt that any believer will find anything objectionable in its pages. This believer, for one, finds much that is spiritually helpful.".
