    "A Must Read for Everyone"

    This book has changed the lives of millions around the world, and for that reason alone everyone should listen to it. The stories of changed lives are fascinating and compelling. Unlike many novels, these stories are not embellished, and drinking is not glamorised.

    This book is a sobering look at alcoholism, and at the same time takes a cold hard look at the question of "Who is God and why should I take Him seriously?"

    The narrator, Glenn Langhor, is clearly no professional narrator. He makes many minor mistakes and seems to stumble through some passages. But what he lacks in professional reading ability is completely overshadowed by his earnestness. This quality in itself makes the book totally compelling listening, even if you've never had a drink in your life.

    I'm really glad I listened to this book. I can now understand what alcoholics and their families have to deal with.

    "Book is fantastic. Terrible narration."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book. I would NOT recommend this audio recording.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Big Book and a Study Guide of the 12 Steps of AA?

    The book has been life-changing for me.


    What didn’t you like about Glenn Langohr’s performance?

    Awkward pauses that seem to occur when turning pages. Phrasing is frequently off as is pronunciation.

    The book is too good to be subjected to such a bad narration.
