Editorial Reviews

Review

"Most of us are addicted to one thing or another, and Victor Bucklew shows us a way to healing and freedom that is grounded in self-acceptance and self-compassion. Beautifully written, this magnificent book is rich with heartfelt encouragement, soulful wisdom, and suggestions for everyday life."  -Rick Hanson, PhD, author of Neurodharma: New Science, Ancient Wisdom, and Seven Practices of the Highest Happiness

"...This isn't just a book about heroin or alcohol addiction, but also about the much subtler forms of addiction that everyone experiences to some degree. It invites an open meditative exploration rooted in gentle curiosity, present moment awareness, and love. I greatly appreciate Bucklew's open-minded, open-hearted approach and his recognition that everyone has a unique path of recovery. This is a book to savor and reflect upon, not to rush through. It's a beautiful book that I highly recommend."  -Joan Tollifson, author, Nothing to Grasp and Bare Bones Meditation

"
The Hidden Gifts of Addiction is a remarkable book - an invitation to healing, brimming with encouragement, trust, and hope. I've seldom read a book so inviting, reassuring, and hopeful. With his call to courage, Victor Bucklew continuously engages the reader with his profound compassion and offers his companionship every step of the way. He shares his personal journey and normalizes even the most painful steps in recovery. Inspiring and uplifting, this book is destined to be a classic in the field. Yet, the author's insight and wisdom are for everyone. With a deep bow of gratitude for his invaluable gift." -Olivia Ames Hoblitzelle, author, Aging with Wisdom: Reflections, Stories, and Teachings

"Dr. Bucklew has written a heartfelt, soulful and meditative treatise reframing addiction.  Respect replaces shame, validation overrides hopelessness, and learning from suffering transforms the painful journey many people experience in recovery.  Bucklew's fresh, new take on healing from addiction is a light in the darkness, long overdue."
-Tess Castleman, Jungian Analyst, and author of Threads, Knots, and Tapestries

"A heart-opening path that's both grounded and visionary. Bucklew offers us the secret gems that addiction and its healing provide. Highly recommended!"
-Ana Holub, addiction recovery counselor, and author of Forgive and Be Free

"The beauty of this book is that it brings even our most destructive behaviors out of the shadows and into the light of love, kindness, curiosity, and even wonder... Even our darkest paths have their own kind of wisdom and gifts. Victor invites us to ask what is really going on in this territory called 'addiction.' To pause and be with what is here - even as we are drawn to reach for something to 'fill' the moment." -Richard Witteman, meditation teacher at Springwater Center for Meditative Inquiry

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible.
Reviewed in the United States on November 21, 2020
I have never read a book quite like this. Bucklew's writing, and his depth of lived experience from surviving what many people never make it through, truly moved me and spoke to many of the aspects of life I struggle with. I found solace in his reflections and reframing of "addiction" as a natural extension of our human sensitivity in a toxic world. This book is for anyone searching for healing and soulfulness in their life - and it does not fall down the "spiritual bypassing" rabbit holes that neglect how life actually is in the real world. Whether or not you consider yourself an addict, in recovery, or the loved one of someone struggling with addiction, this book is for you. I found it especially helpful during this more isolated period of my life, where I've been struggling more due to COVID-related isolation.
