"This amazing book is about a revolutionary concept-- recovery for the non-addict." --Anne Lamott
Most people know Paul Williams as the awardwinning songwriter behind "Rainbow Connection." His friend, screenwriter Tracey Jackson also knows him as an alcoholic who has embraced the twelve-step recovery plan for more than two decades. Although not an addict herself, Jackson--a veteran of traditional therapy--realized that many of the tenets Williams followed could help her. Together, they have made it their mission to show other non-addicts how to apply the principles of the recovery movement to ease their suffering. Inspirational and uplifting, "Gratitude and Trust" is a landmark guide that will help readers uncover their healthiest, happiest selves.

Review quote

"This amazing book is about a revolutionary concept--recovery for the non-addict, for those who have longed for what their recovering friends have: a spiritual path, healthy company, and a little light to see by. Paul Williams and Tracey Jackson have great insight into our shared problems, solutions, humanity, craziness, and dreams. Plus, they will make you laugh, and give you hope, that recovery--starting over--is for everyone who has imagined a life of immediacy, honesty, and joy."
--Anne Lamott
"Paul and Tracey have come up with a brilliant insight: recovery is not just for addicts. Why should our friends in recovery be the only ones to benefit from this time-tested wisdom? I'll take some too, please. If you read this book, you'll feel better by page 5 or thereabouts. And by page 51, you'll be underlining passages and making notes in the margins - at least if you're like me. It helped me change the way I think, eat, feel, even do my housework. My deep gratitude to Paul and Tracey for writing this book that will help millions."
--A.J. Jacobs, author of "The Know-It-All"
"Self-help books can be so woo woo and annoying. "Gratitude and Trust" is the brilliant exception. This life-affirming book is bursting with wicked insights, bravado and wit."
--Simon Doonan, author of "The Asylum"
"Reading "Gratitude and Trust" is like a long sit-down with a couple of very smart, funny, plain-spoken friends who have been through some hard times, and are here to help you avoid the same pitfalls. This is a generous and insightful book."
--Dani Shapiro, author of "Slow Motion"
