Alcoholics Anonymous by Anonymous
View book: Alcoholics Anonymous
Alcoholics Anonymous, also known as the Big Book in recovery circles, presents fundamental principles of alcoholism recovery and shares stories of individuals who have triumphed over the disease. In the latest fourth edition, twenty-four new narratives are included, offering contemporary perspectives for newcomers seeking alcoholism recovery in A.A. during the early 21st century.
In addition to the new stories, sixteen narratives from the previous edition are retained, including the Pioneers of A.A. section. This section not only connects readers to A.A.’s historical roots but also illustrates how early members utilized the program’s simple yet powerful methodology that continues to support alcoholics in getting sober today.
The first three editions of Alcoholics Anonymous have collectively reached a distribution of around 21 million copies. Anticipated to build on this legacy, the new fourth edition aims to convey A.A.’s essential message of recovery. The General Service Conference of Alcoholics Anonymous has approved this edition, in the hope that it will guide many more individuals towards recovery by explaining the A.A. program and showcasing diverse personal experiences that demonstrate its efficacy.
