Alcoholics Anonymous has made famous its twelve steps to sobriety.   In Waking Up Just in Time,  Dr. Abraham J. Twerski shows how you can use the twelve steps to cope with any of life’s difficulties, from dishonesty and intolerance of others to substance abuse.   Dr. Twerski leads the way through AA’s twelve steps toward a happier, more fulfilling life.

A few years ago, Dr. Twerski found that the Peanuts comics of Charles M. Shulz were helpful in his work with psychiatric patients.   The humorous words and pictures in Peanuts gave patient and doctor a common ground for talking.   Now Dr. Twerski again calls on Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and friends to help illustrate his points in their own inimitable way.
