Not what I was looking for.

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Randye Kaye?

Yes

Would you be willing to try another book from the authors? Why or why not?

Yes, their research is good as well as the writing.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narration was good.

Any additional comments?

This book was written for families and friends of addicts, not for people dealing with addiction themselves. That fact could have been made more clear in the subtitle and description.
