    Hey all, I am looking to gather some new books/articles that have helped others in sobriety. These would be any books that have changed your perspective or your spiritual life. Or just inspirational books that you enjoyed. I will have some to add shortly as well.

    Generally speaking....all of the books I'm going to post are spiritual books but none of them are sanctioned by AA....they're simply good books that I've found throughout my recovery.

    If you've ever sailed a boat, this book is an absolute GEM!!
    http://www.amazon.com/First-You-Hav...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1243829039&sr=8-1

    This book was phenomenal to me because this monk had to learn how to leave let his church go and find his own path in life. It really helped me a LOT and I've read it a number of times in my life.
    http://www.amazon.com/Dance-Fallen-...=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1243829084&sr=1-2

    This next book was a good read and helped me a lot but there were parts that really didn't apply to me and I had a hard time getting all the way through it....however, the majority of the book was beneficial.
    http://www.amazon.com/Path-Heart-Th...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1243829216&sr=1-1

    This book was also quite good but in a different way.
    http://www.amazon.com/Chop-Wood-Car...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1243829290&sr=1-1

    I also really enjoyed the AA grapevine....our meeting in print. It's a monthly magazine published by AA that I used to take to work with me and read at lunch every day. Here's the website:

    Anyways, I hope some of these will help you like they've helped me.

    Well there's the AA and NA basic texts, The Step Working Guides. As for other stuff, I found help from the Grief Recovery Handbook, The Miracle of Mindfulness, and misc other spiritual stuff
