From Eva Schwartz, Netgalley reviewer. (aka Stormhawk on goodreads.com)There are a lot of books in the self-help genre that you read once, put it down, and don't carry a lot away from. Believeable Hope is not one of those sorts of books. It is a story of a healing journey that invites you along, both to view the success of others, but to spur your own success, and to utilize your failures as motivations for change. There is not a lot of advice offered in this book, which makes it stand out from the crowd. What you do get is practical information and self-assessment tools that guide you to finding your own focus, make plans, act on them, adapting and improving when necessary. I look forward to returning to this book to help myself, as well as my clients in substance abuse treatment.
