Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit.

The Craig Beck stop drinking method is unique: No need to declare yourself an alcoholic. It's a permanent cure, not a lifetime struggle. There are no group meetings or expensive visits to rehab. No humiliation, no pain, and 100% no will power required. His method treats the source of the problem, not the symptoms.

Would you listen to Alcohol Lied to Me again? Why?

Yes because of it's positive reinforcement.

What about Craig Beck’s performance did you like?

All aspects of his performance are pleasing and professional.

Any additional comments?

I read Mr. Beck's book about a year and a half ago because after many years of drinking I felt that I had crossed a very dangerous line. What I loved about the book is that it was written from personal experience. As I read it I felt that it was written about me. I had many of the same experiences. I wasn't succesful on my first few attempts but I would go back and listen to Alcohol Lied to me and it started to make more and more sense to me. Contained in this book are so many truths that opened my eyes. I can't say enough great things about it. Today it's been one year for me and this book has changed my life in profound ways. I recently had my 54th birthday and I'm in the best shape of my life. As a result of not drinking I've lost 10 Kg and have gone from a 36 to a 32 waist. I'm also the healthiest I've been in many decades. On top of that people often tell me that I look 10 years younger than my current age. I can go on and on but the gist of what I'm saying is DOWNLOAD THIS BOOK, BUY IT TODAY!

Take it from a self help book junkie. This book is a cut above the rest. Exposing the lies is the path to the truth.
