- Author uses biblical scripture in a unique way, calling it a "prescription" for quitting smoking.
- Provides clear explanation of how the lungs work, how they are affected by cigarette smoke and how this leads to COPD.
- Explains how COPD is diagnosed, how the severity of the disease is staged, and the treatment involved with each stage.
- Discusses how nicotine replacement therapy and other smoking cessation medications should be used as adjuncts to an effective quit smoking program.
- Provides a 28-day devotional guide to quitting filled with powerful, spiritual messages to help give the reader strength and encouragement.
- Because the book's focus is that of religion and biblical scripture, it is clearly not for everyone.
- If the reader is not from a religious background, book may come across as a little preachy and over-the-top.
Because I consider myself a spiritual and not a religious person, the fact that the book uses biblical scripture to help get its message across made me a bit hesitant to want to read it. Nevertheless, I did like the author's simple explanation of COPD and found that the book had a certain innocent quality about it, like the author really believes in the bible, and it's ability to help people overcome addiction. When I asked him if he had used the principles set forth in the book to help him overcome his own smoking problem, he told me he had never been a smoker, but that he believed that scripture, combined with other methods, will not only help people conquer their addiction to cigarettes, but to many other substances, as well. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a desire to quit smoking, who will not be offended by the religious tone of the reading.
