Steve/Bert really drills down to the one “addiction” we can all associate with (unless you’re in denial). Control.
Speaking for myself; I have always wanted what I want and when I wanted it. But how can we control anything? To a large extent we can’t; we’re really mostly powerless, which leads to so many of societies and individuals social, financial, sexual, etc…… problems.

I am also a person who lives life in recovery from addiction. I can tell you that after reading this fine authors e-book, I now know I was also addicted to “Control.” But this book is not just for those in recovery. It is for everyone.
What an amazing guide, resource and wonderful read on how to grab hold of control and remove it from your life. Steve did a fantastic job with writing this book. And of course, I loved the humor and wit in making light of just how bad this behavior is, and how it invades every part of our lives. In our relationships, co-workers, spouses, family, etc.
Steve clearly lays out how to remove control out of your life, and shows just how much “negativity” surrounds this behavior. If you want a more peaceful and happy life? I highly recommend everyone to read this amazing book! When I entered recovery, the first thing we are taught is: “we have no CONTROL over people, places, and things, and our recovery journey will be more smooth if we let go of control.”
Funny, I have a list made already of those I will be recommending this book to! LOL.
Other customer comments:
Steve cuts to the chase. The need to control and the suppression of feelings is toxic emotionally and physically. I’ve read countless self-help books. Monkeytraps spoke to me.
This book is for any person who wants to Wake Up! At any moment, any day, open the book and set yourself free from patterns of dysfunctional living.
A brilliant piece of work. I recommend this book for anyone who counsels couples or individual and also for anyone looking for insight into behavior issues.
