A message to warm an author's heart

This message came in today from David F., LifeRing convenor in San Rafael CA:
I got an e-mail yesterday from a guy who wanted to know if he could "drop in" on tonight's LifeRing meeting. We exchanged e-mail a couple more times to be sure he got the directions, etc. Tonight, he showed up and, when it came time for him to talk, he said he'd gotten sober on his own for a while, then began drinking and it was affecting his marriage. He didn't now where to turn for help. One day, in the Self-Help section of a bookstore, he saw your book. It looked interesting so he bought it, read it, liked the way it was written and what it said very much, got on the web site and found our meeting and here he was tonight! I think he gelled very well with LifeRing and we'll see him again real soon and for a long time!
So, hey man.....Congratulations!  -- David
Thank you David.  This is the kind of thing that makes an author's long lonely hours of research and writing and rewriting worthwhile.  The book was designed to bring people to LifeRing meetings and it looks like it's working.
