Depression, self-loathing, unemployment, and destroyed relationships: the effects of drug and alcohol addiction run so much deeper than the morning-after hangover. However, awareness alone will not save the struggling addict, as J.P. Willson reveals in his fearless examination of substance dependency; recovery means doing the mental and emotional work to look inside oneself and discover a way to live as a sober, fulfilled individual in an often challenging world.
Through the Mind’s Eye: A Journey of Self-Discovery is a thought-provoking and honest examination of the emotional, psychological, and physical ways someone must enact their own healing. As a recovering alcoholic, Willson courageously shares his own story of addiction, as well the ups and downs he experienced along the road to recovery. Packed with astonishing insights about our culture’s relationship to alcohol, as well as the lies we tell ourselves in order to keep using, this book will change the way you view addiction. Willson has no qualms about telling the reader how difficult recovery is—and how there is no quick cure-all—but his compassionate, candid reflections help foster the knowledge and will to change.
Through the Mind’s Eye is a poignant, incredible, moving piece of non-fiction that will help, inspire and above all, captivate its readers. Through the Mind’s Eye is an influential, powerful book because it deals with issues of addiction; for those that have or are struggling with addiction, will find this book incredibly useful and inspiring as it is written by somebody who has struggled. For those that know somebody with or who have had an addiction, they will be enlightened and will understand this condition more and know that it is not as easy as you may think to just stop. Overall Through the Mind’s Eye is a moving book, one that everybody should have the pleasure of reading.
Through the Mind’s Eye is an honest, powerfully written book written by the incredible J.P. Willson. Willson takes his readers on the journey of his life and most importantly, his journey through addiction and alcohol dependency. Willson is brazen with his writing and writes with poignancy; he explains to his readers that his life was turmoil because of his addiction. His marriage broke down as a result and his relationship with his daughter suffered, to make matters worse, he lost his job. He lost everything and Willson is honest without shame about this, he bares his soul to his readers, and I admire this so much. Willson does an expert job of letting his readers know the state of his mind and how addiction controls every aspect of your life. However, although Willson takes the reader on an honest journey of his life, he also lets his readers know about his recovery from addiction and how treatments, as well as help, can change your life drastically. Willson is now a recovered man, who I am sure still struggles, but he has found the strength to overcome his addiction, and this is powerful to read about. That is why Willson is admirable for writing a book which will appeal to a wide range of people. It is a book that will be useful for addicts or people who have suffered from addiction, and it will be helpful for those that need information on this subject and the mindset of an addict if you know somebody who is struggling.
This book is a sensational self-help book; the author’s candor, as well as the information laced throughout his book, is quite simply remarkable. His compelling story has the ability to change lives, and that is triumphant in my opinion.
J.P. Willson is a remarkable person for two reasons, the first is because he is honest and brave to write his story and the second is because he is an exceptionally talented author. His impeccable writing is a joy to read and flows beautifully throughout so that the reader will feel compelled to read non-stop. He is a pure literary talent, and so I applaud him for being so brilliant!
To conclude my thought on this insightful, informative, inspiring book, I would say if you are a reader who is interested in the topic of addiction and or depression and coming out the other side, then this book is for you. Through the Mind’s Eye gets Five Stars from me!
