Book Review of Recovery 2.0: Move Beyond Addiction and Upgrade Your Life, by Tommy Rosen

Tommy Rosen is the Founder of Recovery 2.0, a global community dedicated to using yoga as a pathway
to long-term recovery. His first book, also titled Recovery 2.0, was published 9 years ago and does
several things very well: 1) he tells his own story of addiction and recovery; 2) he articulates the 12 steps
in his own words; and 3) he describes the second level or recovery beyond the 12 steps, which he calls
Recovery 2.0. Tommy’s book covers yoga, meditation, and breathing as the primary drivers of moving
individuals into the next stage, where one might become “recovered”. Daily practices to enable
detoxification and transformation are included.

“My designation as a person in recovery from addiction has given me endless gifts, not the least of which is a clear-cut pathway to an exceptional life. It has been like hitting the jackpot, though it certainly didn’t seem like it at the beginning.”
