This is a facsimile copy  of the extremely rare original First edition Alcoholic Anonymous.

Known as the “Big Book”, the basic text of Alcoholics Anonymous has helped millions of people worldwide get and stay sober since the first edition appeared in 1939. Opening chapters articulate A.A.’s program of recovery from alcoholism – the original Twelve Steps – and recount the personal histories of A.A.’s co-founders, Bill W. and Dr. Bob.

Here, more than 40 A.A. members share how they stopped drinking and found a new healthier and more serene way of life through the Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Whether listening to passages together at meetings, listening privately for personal reflection, or working with a sponsor, the Big Book can be a source of inspiration, guidance and comfort on the journey to recovery.
