✏Alcoholics Anonymous Book Summary : 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 AA 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.

✏Finding God in Alcoholics Anonymous Book Summary : Many people hurt and have suffered needlessly under the umbrella of Christianity. They have been prejudiced into believing false doctrines of a punishing, controlling, and absentee God who is waiting to zap you when you least expect it. These rubs always push people away. People know in their heart who God is and who He is not. Believing in a loving Father who doesn’t want to control your will makes sense to most. God wants us to make our own decisions. The atheist and agnostic would gladly follow biblical teachings if they heard the truth. Unfortunately, we all limit ourselves and God by unhealthy beliefs. God takes our pain, guilt, and fear when we search for a better way of life and find the path that allows us to go boldly before Him. Relief will come. The hole in the gut closes. Fear and anger vanish and the truth sets you free. The old timers of Alcoholics Anonymous had discovered a new outlook that today is lost. We too need to let go of past thinking patterns that hinder us and search for something that works by doing what Wilson instructed us to do: “Seek God.” This book doesn’t have all the answers. What it does is start people on the ultimate truth—through scripture—of what the Bible teaches and what God’s will is for our lives. Prove it out for yourself. Study to show thyself approved.

✏101 Common Cliches of Alcoholics Anonymous Book Summary : It is hard to find Alcoholic Anonymous literature that has the same flavor as your favorite meeting... until now. This book was written in the same spirit that claims - "We are not a glum lot." This book has been received with such favor that I have now written a second book to add to it, another 101 cliches, so people now have more cliches and commentary to ponder and enjoy.In the Big Book, an alcoholic' states, "...the most compelling part of A.A., the part that made me want to try this sober thing, was the laughter, the pure joy of the laughter that I heard only from sober alcoholics."This book was written first, with the hope to spread this laughter to the newcomer that has lost all hope. Secondly, it serves to enlighten and dispel rumors about AA, to inform people who are simply curious about the teachings of A.A. It tells what it is really like from someone who has taken the journey and recovered. It is filled with witty heartfelt clich�s that are so true, so sharp, they make the old-timers smile and the newcomers cringe. The clich�s are used to teach newcomers the greater truths about the cure for alcoholism. Each clich� is a parable, an allegorical truth that is then explained using plainly stated information from knowledgable sponsors and the Big Book with humorous commentary from a recovered alcoholic.This book is not fluff, nor is it for the faint hearted. The world of alcohol and drug abuse is not pretty, nor one easily explained or understood. This book is gritty, informative, and at the same time inspirational and full of joy and hope, but most of all it was written with the newcomer in mind, so it does a balancing act just for them. It is meant to be simple, when I was first getting sober I had the attention span of a gnat. It is honest and funny and gives a glimpse of just how ugly addiction gets and how attractive real recovery can be. After reading about us, our cliches and our solution to a condition described as cunning, baffling and powerful, it is my hope at least some will say, "Yes, I am one of them, too; I, too, must have this thing."NOTE: the font size in this book is very close to LARGE PRINT

✏Why Early A A Succeeded Book Summary : Early AAs founded their pioneer program on basic ideas from the Bible. What did they study? What did they learn? How did they approach the possible biblical subjects? There are historical answers, and this book provides them. More important, how can someone in A.A. or a 12 Step program study the Bible in the way the pioneers did and achieve the same 75% to 93% documented success rates among seemingly hopeless medically incurable alcoholics who went to any lengths to establish their relationship and fellowship with God. This book shows you how to do it today!

✏Becoming Alcoholic Book Summary : Affiliation with Alcoholics Anonymous parallels religious conversion, according to David R. Rudy in this timely study of the most famous self-help organization in the world. Drinkers who commit themselves to Alcoholics Anonymous embrace the radically different life-style, the altered world of the convert. To understand this conversion and, more important, to get a grip on the even deeper mystery of alcoholism itself, Rudy sought to answer these three questions: What processes are involved in becoming alcoholic? How does the alcoholic affiliate with, and become committed to, A. A.’s belief system? What is the relation­ship between the world of A. A. members and that constructed by alcohologists? Rudy establishes the history and structure of A. A. and examines the organization’s relationship to dominant sociological models, theories, and definitions of alcoholism.
