      Really it should be 3 and a half stars. What I liked most about this book was that it wasn't all roses and biblical leanings and one line mantra's. There really were several stories that told how hard it was to be a gay alcoholic or drug addict. There was anger, frustration, confusion and a lot (A LOT) of honesty. What I appreciated about the honesty was that, while some guys rattled on, some really made their point quite clear and in fact, I found myself relating to a few of their insecurity is [...]

      Loved this anthology of sober stories because it was my tribe - gay men in big cities, for the most part, and I understand this "creature." Like the editor said, there are really no stories like this in AA's Big Book - that are so frank about how gay men live their lives, and that are not totally AA rah rah all the time.The one thing I would say is that the book was not proofread - as a writing professional, this really irks me.

      While Leaving the Rest could use a good deal of stronger writing and proofreading, it is a good step forward for gay men in recovery.

These three stories qualify my three-star review -- otherwise, check our the Grapevine's newest collection of articles on LGBTs in recovery. More OFFENSIVELY, Leaving the Rest offers Peter Jo [...]

      I enjoyed all the stories. Some depict unorthodox recovery programs, and I like to see how each individual's is different. Well worth the buy.

      This book is as fantastic as much as it is uplifting. The stories of these men's struggles with addiction and how they came through on the other side makes for a remarkable read.
