Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales. In Norse Mythology, Gaiman fashions primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds; delves into the exploits of the deities, dwarves, and giants; and culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and people.

After a decade-long addiction to crack cocaine and alcohol, Charlie Engle hit bottom with a near-fatal six-day binge that ended in a hail of bullets. As Engle got sober, he turned to running, which became his lifeline, his pastime, and his salvation. He began with marathons, and when marathons weren't far enough he began to take on ultramarathons, races that went for 35, 50, and sometimes hundreds of miles, traveling to some of the most unforgiving places on earth to race.

This book is a fantastic adventure from addiction to ultra marathons across the globe. You don't have to be a runner to appreciate the determination Charlie Engel brought to his life and his sport. Very inspiring!

When it comes to problem drinking each of us needs their own recipe for success. This book was a key ingredient for me. I listened everyday and worked the solutions when time allowed. Or should I say, I let the solutions work me?! This book helped me understand the WHY of my drinking and give me the positive HOW of living sober. The companion website is loaded with helpful videos, tips, links and a forum. There were a few things that wasn't a fit for me but I gained so much more.

As part of my recipe I also listened to Kevin O"Hara's Alcohol Mastery podcasts daily. Firstly, I'm not affiliated or being paid by either of these. They were both part of my personal recipe along with exercise, diet, sleep learning/meditation and over the counter supplements. Yes that's a lot of ingredients but they each played an important role in helping me to clear my body and mind from the effects of the poison. Becoming a problem drinker wasn't the result of just one day or one thing for me. It took a lot of days and decisions to get there so I took a few to get back.

If you've tried everything with no success please don't give up. Your recipe is out there or it may even be right here in this book.
