Summary
"In this . . . book, Gerald May describes the processes of attachment that lead to addiction and examines the relationship between addiction and spiritual awareness. May details the various addictions from which we suffer -- not only to alcohol and drugs, but also to work, sex, performance, responsibility, and intimacy. Drawing on his experience as a psychiatrist working with the chemically dependent, May emphasizes how addiction represents a doomed attempt to assert complete control over our lives. 'Addiction & Grace' . . . [offers] a critical yet hopeful guide to a place of freedom based on contemplative spirituality. This 'Plus' edition includes two additional essays by Gerald May not included in the hardcover version." -- Page [4] of cover
