Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How Many Thousands
of Men and Women Have Recovered from Alcoholism

by Alcoholics Anonymous World Services; 4th Rev Edition



This is THE Big Book of AA and the new fourth edition of the AA "bible." The first three editions sold over 22 million copies (since 1937). The fourth edition is changed from the previous edition only the addition of 24 new personal stories in the second half of the book. Sixteen "classic" stories are retained. The first half is unchanged.

It is a must read for anyone in recovery, thinking about recovery, trying to help someone in recovery, or just wondering about the disease of Alcoholism.

This book was authored by Bill W. one of the founders of AA. Bill W. was probably one of the greatest men to ever put pen to paper. His wisdom, experience, and love are on every page. Since AA belives in attraction rather than promotion of its ideas you will not see press releases or editorial reviews of this book. But go to any treatment center and they will probably give you a copy of this book.

With this and previous editions combined it is one of the best selling books of all time. It would show up higher on ... sales ranking[s] if it were a "normal" book. But since its distribution is normally through places like treatment centers and local AA groups it is a closet best seller.
