Abstract:

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.
