Powerless But Not Helpless by Buddy C. is a self-help book about taking steps to overcome addictive behaviors and alcoholism. This exceptional book is written with inspiration from Tao Te Ching, a highly regarded work of Chinese classic literature addressing how to live a virtuous life, from the wisdom of Lao Tzu.
