Your Marriage and the Internet: Untangling Web Addictions and Fantasies
by Tom Whiteman

Book Description:
The Internet is a phenomenal tool, but it can also be destructive to marriages. Easy access to sexual images, information, and chats lures some away from total commitment to their spouses. Other marriages are endangered by preoccupation with the Internet‹too much time spent in solitude rather than in building relationships. Your Marriage and the Internet shows how couples can make the Internet a resource for strengthening marriage and family relationships rather than tearing them apart. It tackles issues of pornography, escapism, instant gratification, online fantasies, and Internet addiction. Personal stories illustrate the issues, and chapters are loaded with positive, practical suggestions for building up marriage.

Alcoholics Anonymous Cult Or Cure 2nd Edition
by Charles Bufe

Book Description:
Charles Bufe tried AA in 1983, hated it, and kept drinking until 1985, when he achieved sobriety on his own. Clearly, Bufe has something of an ax to grind, but for the most part he grinds it fairly. (At worst, the author’s skepticism is no more extreme than the zeal of some AA supporters.) Bufe poses two major questions – Is AA religious? Is it a cult? – and raises some interesting points along the way. He traces the program’s religious overtones to the Oxford Group Movement of the 1930s. This movement, he argues, heavily influenced AA founder Bill Wilson. Bufe supports his thesis with detailed, if not always fascinating, quotes and parallels. He concludes that AA is religious, a label sure to rile members who consider their program a secular one. His other conclusion – that AA isn’t a cult – is only common sense: AA has no leader, makes no financial demands, and does not use high pressure tactics. Bufe raises a timely point regarding the seemingly endless spin-off groups that have adopted AA’s 12 steps as their own. How do victims, such as members of Incest Survivors Anonymous, profit from steps designed for the addicted? Appendices include secular alternatives to AA and the 12 Steps.
