WHAT I LEARNED: 1. Right away I liked that this book is broken up into 4 parts: Awareness, Acceptance, Action, & Moving On. And for me, reading this couldn’t have come at a better time, because I was going through what I considered a crisis this past month. But after so many stories about violence, incest, prison, infidelity, suicide, divorce, AIDS, & death… my crisis didn’t seem so big after all. It was tough to get through, the book I mean, because with such heavy topics I found I could only read a few pages a day, but it’s worth it to make it to the end.
2. Every now & again in the Conference summaries, I see members request new literature be created that deals with abuse. The reply always comes back that this book, “…In All Our Affairs,” from 1990 still holds up.
**BONUS CAL QUESTION: This is 1 of only 2 Al-Anon books available to check-out from my local library system. What’s the other one? (Hint: see item # B-24!)
