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 707 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

"The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous form the cornerstone of one of the most effective programs for recovery from alcoholism. The steps have also been successfully adapted for use in the treatment of many other dependencies. This book brings together for the first time a series of short discussions that interpret each of the twelve steps - from the admission of individual powerlessness over alcohol that occurs in step one to the moral inventory of step four and the spiritual awakening of step twelve."--Page 4 of cover
"Pass it on" : the story of Bill Wilson and how the A.A. message reached the world by Alcoholics Anonymous( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is Bill W., the man everybody knew and nobody knew. Here too, inextricably entwined with his life, is the dramatic story of the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous, its early struggles and amazing growth. Bill's character was complex and contradictory. Although we always tried to place him on a pedestal, he strove for genuine humility, declining honors and stressing the spiritual value of anonymity. The cofounder of A.A., he was never a member of A.A., because we never allowed him to be. Ego-driven, he nevertheless always gave credit to others: to Ebby, to Dr. Bob, to Lois, as appropriate. A charismatic leader, he eschewed power and 'was willing to let go of us before we were willing to let go of him' (in Dr. Jack Norris' words). He has been hailed as one of the most significant figures of the 20th century; yet a nonalcoholic typist for the manuscript of this book commented, 'Isn't it too had he never did anything with his life!' In these pages is the full and rounded story of a remarkable life: The boy growing up in Vermont, always striving to he Number One. The Army officer serving 'over there' in World War I. Bill's romance and marriage with Lois. The fair-haired boy of Wall Street plummeting to rum-soaked despair. Ebby T. and Dr. Silkworth, Bill's spiritual experience, and his meeting with Dr. Bob. And of special significance to the A.A. reader, Bill's role in Alcoholics Anonymous. In preparation over five years, this is the definitive biography of Bill W. Every word is documented, every source checked. For the scholar this volume is invaluable. For all of us, it is exciting reading."--Jacket
