Read Candy Finnigan's posts on the Penguin Blog. From a nationally recognized addiction specialist featured on the A&E series Intervention, a comprehensive and compassionate guide to confronting a loved one with an addiction. What do you do when someone you care about is caught in the downward spiral of addiction? The goal of an intervention is to get the person who is addicted to alcohol, to drugs, to gambling, to sex, to what have you to seek treatment-to seek treatment today. And it is remarkably effective: over 80 percent of people faced with an intervention agree to get help. In When Enough Is Enough, Candy Finnigan offers support, advice, and hope to people who care about someone with an addiction. She acknowledges that although intervention is a powerful tool, it is a complicated process-one that absolutely must be done right. This kind of confrontation must be highly structured, and Finnigan-a veteran of hundreds of interventions-provides a frank but sympathetic guide to preparing for and staging an intervention. By talking readers through the personal, medical, psychiatric, financial, and legal issues involved, she turns what seems like a chaotic and overwhelming task into a manageable and empowering experience.
The Republic of Ireland, which declared itself in 1949, allowed the Catholic Church to dominate its civil society and education system. Investment by American and European companies, and a welcoming tax regime, created the 'Celtic Tiger' of the 1990s. That brief burst of good fortune was destroyed by a corrupt political class which encouraged a wild property boom, leaving the country almost bankrupt. What Ireland needs now is a programme of real change. It needs to become a fully modern republic in fact as well as name. This disastrous economic collapse also allows us to think through the kind of multiculturalism that Ireland needs, and to build institutions that can accommodate the sudden influx of migrants who have come to Ireland in the past 15 years. The State should take over the entire education system, for which it pays already, and make it fit for the 21st century. The political system is dysfunctional and is one of the main causes of the debacle we have just experienced. Ireland needs constitutional reform. Politicians have been let get away with murder, and there is a fatalistic sense that nothing can change. The country needs to encourage participation in, and oversight and knowledge of politics, to make people feel that they have a right to challenge the old party machines and to make a difference. It is their country, after all.
The United States of America has been in trouble for a long time, but before we can correct the problems, we need to know what they are. The time has come for the people to know the truth about what is happening in our cities, our states and our country. Our government has placed an unnecessary burden upon the people of the United States by making mistakes and failing to learn from them. Now we must pay the price. We live in a FREE LAND, but we take it for granted, allowing others to work and fight for us. Instead of valuing the treasure that is freedom of speech, we contentedly stay silent. The only way to bring about the necessary change is to stand up for what we believe in and let our leaders know that we will not sit idly by while they destroy this great country. It is time we all say, "Enough is enough."

As Men, we don't have time for excuses, we don't have time to not have time, our children are growing up in a world that's eating them alive. It's time for the Men of God to stand up for our marriages, children, churches, community and our world. "Enough Is Enough" is a Wake-up Call for Men to take action.

Here's important food for thought for men and women who are bored with their job, are in a tired relationship, or who simply feel overdue for an interlude of personal freedom. Mixing humor, cracker-barrel philosophy, and good common sense, author Evan Harris offers realistic advice by describing more than 20 techniques designed to get her readers out of virtually any nasty situation. They include offering one's antagonist a calm, reasonable argument, or going to the opposite extreme and making a scene. Maybe most satisfying of all is a technique she calls achieving, then vanishing. She also advises on recognizing signs that the time to quit has come. For instance, if you dream about quitting a job where you're underappreciated, it's time to quit. Or if that once-special person in your life cannot understand your feelings, it's time to break off the relationship. Quoting comedian W. C. Fields, Evan Harris reminds her readers: "If at first you don't succeed, try again. Then quit. No use being a damn fool about it."
