What disappointed you about Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition?
...don't be tempted to join the Craig Beck online site that is heavily advertised throughout this audiobook. A lot of the content is limited until you have been subscribed for up to 4 months (to preserve bandwidth apparently). So some content could effectively cost almost £100!! When you are allowed to download content it is all very similar, with identical passages 'cut & pasted' throughout. Actual download files will require some reorganising with filenames, id3 tags, etc - all very unprofessional. The forum is practically dead and I'm not convinced they are all from real subscribers. If you succumb to the adverts in this audiobook and actually join, take out a 1 month offer and then cancel before 28 days and take up the $9.99 VIP offer (which is still double the amount I feel it's actually worth!)

Working for me!!!
Would you consider the audio edition of Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition to be better than the print version?
I haven't read the print version, yet.
Any additional comments?
I listened to this book on my way to night shift on Monday (2.5 hrs to work and the same return), by the time I got home Tuesday morning I was a non drinker. I have no stress from stopping my daily habit and feel great, I just have to pinch myself to confirm this is real. I did use the Alan Carr book a few years ago and quit for a couple of weeks but this book has worked straight away and I honesty cannot imagine going back to the bad old days of drinking. I have listened to the book daily on my commute which probably helps, most people would not have the time for this, but while I am driving its no problem and Craig tells his story in an engaging manner. Highly recommended.

4 years ago, this book changed my life. Thank you.
What made the experience of listening to Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition the most enjoyable?
The results. I can't say I bought this book to pass the time, I bought it because I was looking for information to help me do something. I found everything I needed in the recording, and the most enjoyable part of that is the result which has led me to come back 4 years later to write this review to say thank you to Mr Beck.
Who was your favorite character and why?
There is only one character really, one who you will listen to and trust and learn from.
Have you listened to any of Craig Beck’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I have, but this is by far the best in my opinion.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I found it on a whole very informative, motivational and moving, but couldn't single out a single moment. It is some years since I last listened to it though last though!
Any additional comments?
Yes. If you are anything like me, sometimes you reluctantly might need to find help from someone to achieve something. In this book I found the perfect tools to do the job I needed to do. If you are considering buying this book, then possibly you have been looking to do the same thing I was, 4 very happy, productive years ago. You too will find everything you need in this book. I've come back all this time later because I really would like to thank Mr Beck for the help this book gave me (and friends of mine who have also used the information to help stop drinking).I hope this review makes sense, I've never felt compelled to write one before, but credit where credit is due - thank you Mr Beck.
