“Great insight into not simply getting clean and sober, but “living” clean and sober. Well written, easy to read, gritty and brutally honest, Still Standing is the book to read for anyone who desires long term sobriety or those who care for someone in recovery. Bucky Sinister hit a homerun with this one.” -Barb Rogers ― Reviews
“Bucky Sinister is a desperatelyneeded tonic in this quasienlightened age. Sardonic, heartfelt and helpful, Bucky’s writing is a lifeline for the nonspiritual.” -Patton Oswalt ― Reviews
“Sober since February 19, 2002, Sinister is following up his first recovery book, Get Up, with this whatomesaftergettingsober offering. As tough as it is for addicts to get sober, living sober is even tougher. Sinister talks honestly about things like relapsing, whiteknuckling it, and the antisteps. The tone of the book is lively, real, and even a bit raw. At the heart of it are the stories of addicts staying sober and the things that get them through one day at a time.Sinister says that he writes self-help books for people who don’t read self-help books. It’s his I’mjusttellingitlikeitis style that makes the book a page turner. This is not only a valuable resource for recovering addicts, but also a good tool for those who are trying to understand them.” Anna Jedrziewski, New Age Retailer, May 2011 ― Reviews
