Alcoholics Anonymous: The Big Book
We search the most popular review sites and give you one score you can trust!
Many thousands have benefited from The Big Book and its simple but profound explanation of the doctrines behind Alcoholics Anonymous, which was founded in 1935 by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith. This original 1939 edition outlines the famous 12 steps, and offers counsel for those who wish to join the program but doubt the existence of a higher power. It also contains encouraging personal stories, in which A members relate their experiences with alcohol and how they found the path to sobriety.
The Big Book has gone through numerous editions and remains the most widely used resource for recovering alcoholics. Only this original 1939 edition includes all 29 stories of the program's pioneers, which share the details of their full journey, including initial recovery, sometimes followed by relapse and eventual success. This edition also features the key to the solution claimed by Bill Wilson: a vital spiritual experience that allows followers to rediscover, or discover, God.
This realistic portrayal of the program as offered by its founders has been lost in subsequent editions of the work, and is presented here to serve as a reminder that success comes in many forms.

As far as the content goes, I'd say it's pretty spot on with the rest of the network. A nice copy, said Paul LiCalsi, executive vice president of Random House. You can do it, we believe in you.

I thought I was ordering the original first edition of the book, but several people have made references to pages that are significantly higher in number than this book. It's still useful reading, Glover said.
