The best I've found so far Jan 30, 2006
This is the best book about the practical application of Orthodox Christian spirituality to getting control of addictions and compulsive behavior that I've ever seen. Mihailoff isn't a fluent writer and he could have used some copy-editing, but those are quibbles. This guy deserves a medal for gathering between two covers the most effective Christian tools for self-transformation that have ever been discovered.
