Transcending the mental health/ addictions genre, Fletcher uses her gift for narrative to describe the results of a disciplined survey of how 222 people got their drinking under control. Her intelligent guide to alcohol problems doesn't rely on simplistic dogma to make its points. A seamless array of superbly told stories highlights people in all segments of society who, each in his or her own way, declared their lives would be better sober. The effect is that all 9 hours (packaged in a lovely box, by the way) will encourage even the casual listener to take a heartfelt look at the many faces of alcohol abuse and recovery. T.W.
