A simple program : a contemporary translation of the book Alcoholics Anonymous by Bill W.( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its first publication in 1939, the original "Big Book" of Alcoholics Anonymous has reflected the initial perception that alcoholism primarily, if not solely, afflicts men. Over the years, we have come to recognize that this disease does not discriminate, yet the "Bible" of Alcoholics Anonymous has never been updated - until now. A Simple Program offers a new translation with gender-equal language, making it more accessible and relevant to the modern reader. Written by a longtime member of Alcoholics Anonymous, A Simple Program is a faithful modernization of the "Big Book"'s complete core text. An invaluable boon for all members of A.A. and other 12-step programs, it is also a helpful guide for those whose loved ones are battling addiction and for anyone interested in matters of spiritual or mental health

"A 75th anniversary keepsake volume of the most important and practical self-help book ever written, Alcoholics Anonymous. Here is a special deluxe edition of a book that has changed millions of lives and launched the modern recovery movement: Alcoholics Anonymous. Shrink-wrapped in a vegan-leather hardback casing with a ribbon marker, acid-free paper, stained page edges, and slipped into an O-card reminiscent of the book's original 1939 jacket design, this volume is a lifetime keepsake. This edition not only reproduces the original 1939 text of Alcoholics Anonymous, but as a special bonus features the complete 1941 Saturday Evening Post article "Alcoholics Anonymous" by journalist Jack Alexander, which, at the time, did as much as the book itself to introduce millions of seekers to AA's program. Alcoholics Anonymous has touched and transformed myriad lives, and finally appears in a volume that honors its posterity and impact"--

The recovery bible by Bill W.( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The founders of the modern recovery movement, including Bill Wilson, Bob Smith, and other early AAs, were deeply influenced by a handful of inspirational authors, from whom they received practical guidance, key insights, and concrete ideas. Their explorations of inspirational literature and useable spiritual methods gave rise to the program of spiritual self-help now practiced around the world as the twelve-step tradition. Now, some of the core books that both inspired and were produced by the early twelve-steppers and recovery pioneers, including the first edition of the 1939 landmark Alcoholic Anonymous, are collected in this powerful resource, The Recovery Bible
