The book focuses it's attention, however, on recovery. Addiction is heinous in it's devastation and allure. It is nice to visit the subject with such a positive, hopeful, realistic expectation of emancipation from the clutches of this horrible vice.
If you or a loved one has fallen into this horrible trap, I recommend this book as a great place to start toward leaving the devastation behind. If you are a Church Leader may I suggest it as well. It is important to realize that abstinence is not the same as recovery and such an assumption is a dangerous one.
Dr. Hilton makes it plain that this problem exists at epidemic proportions and must, though uncomfortable, be addressed broadly among the population. The book was recommended to me by a General Authority in connection with the LDS Church's Addiction Recovery Program. I in turn recommend it to you.

Much to my surprise, I discovered that Roger Miller was the first to record that much loved song! And his rendition seems to be my favorite!
According to Wikipedia 55 major artists have recorded a rendition of Me And Bobby McGee. I wonder if that is a record, no pun intended. Janis Joplin's version took the song to the top of the charts, but not until after her death. It was her only number one single.
Whose version is your favorite? I'll compile the stats in a couple of weeks.
