Item Description...
The Big Book sets forth the cornerstone concepts of recovery from addiction and shares the stories of men and women who have overcome the disease.

Publishers Description
The fourth edition includes twenty-four new stories that provide contemporary sharing for newcomers seeking recovery from alcoholism in A.A. during the early years of the 21st century. Sixteen stories are retained from the third edition, including the "Pioneers of A.A." section, which helps the reader remain linked to A.A.'s historic roots, and shows how early members applied this simple but profound program that helps alcoholics get sober today. Approximately 21 million copies of the first three editions of "Alcoholics Anonymous" have been distributed. It is expected that the new fourth edition will play its part in passing on A.A.'s basic message of recovery. This fourth edition has been approved by the General Service Conference of Alcoholics Anonymous, in the hope that many more may be led toward recovery by reading its explanation of the A.A. program and its varied examples of personal experiences which demonstrate that the A.A. program works.

More About AA Services

Anonymous Throughout the history of literature, since the creation of bound texts in the forms of books and codices, various works have been published and written anonymously, often due to their political or controversial nature, or merely for the purposes of the privacy of their authors, among other reasons.

Historically, when a book was published and the author information was not known, then that book would be said to be written by Anonymous. In its most literal translation, anonymous simply means that no one knows who was responsible for the literary work.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
This book illustrates a way of live  Sep 18, 2008
In having some personal experience in alcoholism and having now recovered from that aspect of my life for over 20 years now I can only say that the program of recovery outlined in this book and in AA has resulted in a life for me beyond what I ever thought I could become. This doesn't mean it will work that way for you or that this is the only solution but for me it worked with due diligence but it did take time. Breaking down self will is not an overnight affair.

The problem is that each person is complex and each person's recovery is different. This book outlines basic tools to find what works for me. These tools have been illustrated through the ages in many different religions and/or spritual avenues. The thing is it takes time and experience. I don't believe no one can pick this book up, read it through, and have their life change instantly. This is no doubt a program that relies on action of the steps and long term experience.

Being in AA since I was 14 and sober since 19 in many areas of the country I still do not understand the association of AA with being a cult. All I can express is I have a livable life now that is mostly enjoyed and not endured inside and outside the rooms.
"How it works..."  Jun 8, 2008
If you have/have had a problem with alcohol, this is the book to read. The AA program has "worked" for millions of people, since 1935, when other tried means did not. For the guy who said the chapter, "To the Wives," is a sexist piece of trash: Use your brains, buddy. It describes the alcoholic, whether male or female, and how their ("politically correct") significant others can cope. I'm a female recovering alcholic and didn't have trouble relating to the chapter nor saw it as offensive. AA saved my life and I will forever be grateful. And the text, "Alcoholics Anonymous," proved invaluable in my recovery journey. -- Debbie S., Andover, KS
AA program saves lives  Feb 10, 2008
The AA program has saved thousands of people from a life of hopeless addiction. This book lays out the whole program of AA. If you follow it, you will get better. Not only will you be able to stop drinking but your life will improve dramatically. It works if you work it!
Saved my life  Nov 20, 2007
I was 21 when I got sober. At the time, I thought the book was outdated and could never help me. Somebody suggested that I go to a meeting to study this book, I drug my heels all the way there--but, five years later I'm still sober and that book study meeting is my homegroup.

This book has worked for millions of alcoholics. It's not the only way to get sober, but it's what's worked for me--for that, I'm greatful.
I don't understand the critism  Sep 12, 2007
I don't really understand the lengths I've seen people go to to discredit this book or the 12 steps in general. I am not a member of AA but I have a family member who was saved literally from the brink of death by NA. The changes in her and in her life have been nothing short of miraculous. If it was a 'cult' that brought about this change in her then I say Thank God for the 12-step cult, for it is truly a force of good.
