Moments of Clarity: Voices from the Front Lines of Addiction and Recovery

Moments of Clarity: Voices from the Front Lines of Addiction and Recovery - Christopher Kennedy Lawford Moments of clarity is a compilation of recovery stories representing a broad range of folks. However, on the whole I found it a bit disappointing. Many of the stories caused me to question the sobriety of their creators, and others brought the standard southern declaration of failure “bless their heart”. That being said, there were a few that were quite inspiring. For these stories the moments of clarity were profound and universal. I especially liked Jamie Curtis, Earl Hightower, Thomas “Hollywood” Henderson, and Marie Morning-Glory. Ultimately the suggestion of always looking for similarities rather than differences makes this a worthwhile read.
