Inhaltsangabe: Alcoholism is an obsession of the mind that condemns one to drink and an allergy of the body that condemns one to die.

In the 1930s, this statement by Dr. William Duncan Silkworth flew in the face of conventional wisdom that alcoholism was a moral failing. Risking his professional reputation, Dr. Silkworth articulated the medical observations and spiritual principles that helped to make the Alcoholics Anonymous program the success story it is today.

Key features and benefits:

  • only biography authorized by the Silkworth family
  • contains exclusive collection of Dr. Silkworth's complete writings
  • the definitive story of a man who challenged conventional wisdom about addiction

Über den Autor: Dale Mitchel, a successful business owner, and a recovering alcoholic, is 43 years old, married and the father of three beautiful girls. His complete story is included within the book, A Ghost in The Closet, in the chapter titled 'My Lead.' Among many interesting facts in his story is how he has grown from a distant alcoholic father to one who shares daily meditation with his daughters every morning.In hopes of finding some level of understanding to the disease concept of alcoholism, and an inability to at first accept that he was an alcoholic, Mitchel began a two year long analysis of existing literature on alcoholism and addiction. The results are this wonderful book.Mitchel has appeared on numerous radio shows throughout the country and television, offering his analysis of alcoholism, treatment and recovery. His views present the common characteristics found within other more singularly disciplined research and theoretically presented predispositions to alcoholism.Reviews for the book, and sales results, have shown A Ghost in the Closet as becoming widely accepted as a complete analysis of alcoholism and the alcoholic mind. Called 'one of the best summaries of the knowledge we have acquired about alcoholism...' by renown psychiatrist and treatment therapist, Joanne Lindy, A Ghost in the Closet answers many of the questions prevalent in our society, and dispels the myth of willpower.
