Mixed emotions

Would you listen to Little Red Book again? Why?

I would listen again because I am interested in the material....

What was one of the most memorable moments of Little Red Book?

Many memorable moments when it is obviouse the narrator doesn't relate to what he is reading.

How could the performance have been better?

Would have been better without mis- inflections, missed punctuation...and if the narrator were a drunk(which is not an insult..just an inside joke)

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Little Red Book?

I get the material...it will help,me where I apply it.

Any additional comments?

The narrator is not at fault...he is obviously not a drunk. There are many inflections which were not correct, as well as mispronunciations and missed punctuation the director should have caught. ...and maybe would have if they understood the material or perhaps even read it. I got the feeling they threw it together to make a buck because they knew it was of interest, but didn't take the time to read the book. In fact if I had to guess I would say it was the narrators first read through. I may listen again because, knowing the material...having read the book and lived the experience...I still get information from it. I would love to see it redone properly.

Helps me understand addicts in my life.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

It's a serious content. at times difficult , painful topics for ppl and this guy is super chipper. Great voice but a little to Sunny if someone is bottoming out. None the less the message is life changing and a spiritual in content of me, healing. Not religion!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Every chapter. The whole book is.

Any additional comments?

Makes me a better person and understanding of an addict close to me in my personal life.

the little red book

Would you listen to Little Red Book again? Why?

Yes, I listen to this on my way to work. Whatever step I am on it gives me an overview.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Little Red Book?

Timesaving.

Any additional comments?

Reader makes the material more interesting than the written book. I hear new things that I never noticed because I can replay the material.

Some aspects of The Little Red Book

Nice, convenient, easier, softer way to have AA fed by a silver spoon. Get a sponsor.

Review of Little Red Book: Alcoholics Anonymous

From my study of AA the book keeps my interest and is a great companion to the Alcoholics Anonymous Book. It’s narrator is easy to listen to.

Great assistance with AA.

Explains the 12 steps well, and made it easy to understand what to do! Follows the hardcopy word for word.

red book will travel.

Would you listen to Little Red Book again? Why?

Yes I would and do. Not being able to attend meetings because of my job, which involves traveling at night, it keeps me focused and sober.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Little Red Book?

I guess as a member of AA, it enables me to listen to the steps, and help me continue to live my life in a productive, happy life.

What does Jason McCoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He has a very positive voice, that keeps me positive and not alone in the quest to maintain my sobriety.

Content good

Where does Little Red Book rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

First self help book I have downloaded

What did you like best about this story?

Very helpful information but no substitute for the AA Big Book (can not be downloaded to Canada)

Would you be willing to try another one of Jason McCoy’s performances?

Delivery too fast, no time to absorb thoughts. Very poor for alcoholics in early recovery for that reason.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Little Red Book?

At this time I can think of nothing specific, but I know as I listened there were a few things that emerged for me.

A great reminder!

I've been sober since 12/07/1990, and once I started listening to the Little Red Book it has reminded me of what I need to do to stay sober.
Thank you God for Alcoholics Anonymous and the many friends I've not met yet.

gteat presentation of classic A.A. literature.

Poor narration & too listy

I only got half way through this book... the delivery by the narrator is soul less and the writing is too much list reading out a list. Pretty boring and difficult to get into.
