Probably the most thought-provoking and life-changing book I have ever read. You don’t have to be an alcoholic to appreciate this book (I am not), but being down on yourself seems to open up your mind to the peculiar lessons this book is teaching.

One of my favorite books; I feel the need to reread ever so often. This book was life/thought changing for me and the experience is repeated with each reading. For anyone who has ever struggled with alcoholism, this can provide answers. For anyone who has ever struggled with life, this can provide answers. The question for some is whether or not they truly want answers/solutions or do they want to continue doing what they are doing by making excuses…

Great Spiritual Book!

This is a marvelous book! It showed me that “We are all broken,” and “perfection” is not only impossible for an individual, but not even desireable! A wonderful spiritual book that encompasses many stories from a multitude of faiths!

If you are a person who is dedicated to their doctrines, this book may not be for you. But if you can see God’s truth beyond the four corners of a contract, be prepared to be stretched! AA…….something for everyone who is searching for life.

This is a wonderful book. It is recovery oriented and speaks of AA history often. A key point in this book is that stories have been used throughout the ages to convey a message. Usually a spiritual one and this book examines that with many examples.

Reading and rereading the stories within the story. It isn’t that I don’t comprehend what I am reading, it’s that it fits so perfectly with my way of thinking. I have retold many of the stories also.

We are one. I’ve said this for years. With this book I might just believe it. And I can believe that I am part of the One.

Magnificent Book of Truths

The Spirituality of Imperfection is a tangible reflection of the true essence of learning to be “human.” One of the finest writings I have come across. I read this book when it first sold in print, and I still refer to this book even today!!!!! I shared a story to my Son two days ago, from this magnificent book. Anyone seeking Truth, Spirituality, Humaness, and Yes, even Love or unconditional regard would be wise to add this information to your search on this journey we call Life. Linda Ann Reynolds, Ed.S.

Great book. a little philosophical though.

Overall I really enjoyed this book. It helped Freemy from my burden of perfectionism. I recommend it highly for any damaged Christians out there. God is more than a sadistic schoolboy waiting to torture you. I loved the stories.
