Abstract:

"When Bill Wilson, with his friend Dr. Bob Smith, founded Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935, his hope was that AA would become a safe haven for those who suffer from this disease. Thirty years after his death, AA continues to help millions of alcoholics recover from what had been commonly regarded as a hopeless addiction. AA is now approaching its sixty-fifth anniversary and can be found in more than 140 countries worldwide where an estimated two million people attend their meetings each week. It was Wilson who created the steps of the now famous twelve-step program that has become the cornerstone of every recovery program today."--Jacket.
