Very valuable info.; needs skilled narrator

Content is very helpful!! Please do the text justice and the-record with a skilled ,experienced narrator. I’ve been an audible customer for years now, and this is the first book that seems to not be a “production”. This book is read in a manner that conveys as if there is no consideration to punctuation, making it very hard to process the content.

Sounds like a computer generated voice

I really love this book. I wanted in in audible so I could listen in my car. The “voice” is SO distracting that I was unable to listen for even a little while. I had to return it.

Incomplete! Stories Omitted!

I love this book but was very disappointed that the stories were omitted. I had hoped to listen to the book in its entirety.

The voice

It's everything you need to hear but don't want to because of the voice. Listen but just from another narrator.

The key to contented productive sobriety.

Written as a basic text for survial by the founder of AA. Contempt before investigation is the key tell ignorance so read with an open mind. A book that teaching a person how to live sober and be happy joyous and free! I loved the old school Yankee voice of the narrator who talked with out P.C editing.

Life-changer!

This book has changed my life! Only the Bible is more important to me. The 12 steps work and offer a 75% success rate for recovery (the other 25% see improvement); and I have seen that to be true of the population in my AA meetings. If you have a loved one struggling with addiction, please read this book. If you think or know you have an addiction, then this book is for you! God's will be done and may He bless you and keep you.

Absolute “MUST READ” for those in need! Refer to anyone facing the difficulties and many challenges brought forth from Alcohol

Great content, relatable and needed to understand oneself and overcoming alcoholism. Definitely refer to anyone in need regardless of relationship status. This is the tool, the key, the guide to sobriety!
