The New Year is often a time for people to self-evaluate, set goals, and try to find ways to defeat the addictions and habits that they feel are holding them back from a more complete life.  By happy coincidence The Bibliophile Adventures Podcast is happy to welcome a new contributor, Adam S.L. (@RetroReprise on Twitter),who has recently felt motivated by Russell Brand's book, Recovery.  The book offers guidance on how to help yourself actually succeed in overcoming those things that seem unbeatable.  Enjoy Adam's thoughtful, honest, and insightful takeaways from Brand's book.  “This manual for self-realization comes not from a mountain but from the mud...My qualification is not that I am better than you but I am worse.” Russell Brand
