Publisher's Summary

A 75th anniversary keepsake volume of the most important and practical self-help book ever written, Alcoholics Anonymous.

Here is a special deluxe edition of a book that has changed millions of lives and launched the modern recovery movement: Alcoholics Anonymous.

This edition not only reproduces the original 1939 text of Alcoholics Anonymous, but as a special bonus features the complete 1941 Saturday Evening Post article "Alcoholics Anonymous" by journalist Jack Alexander, which, at the time, did as much as the book itself to introduce millions of seekers to AA's program.

Alcoholics Anonymous has touched and transformed myriad lives, and finally appears in a volume that honors its posterity and impact.

    "Love This Book!"
    If you could sum up Alcoholics Anonymous Deluxe Edition in three words, what would they be?

    Accurate! Current! Inspiring!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Accurate insight to how the Alcoholics mind works and how to better it.


    Which character 鈥 as performed by Mitch Horowitz 鈥 was your favorite?

    On point! Easy to listen to.


    What鈥檚 an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Acceptance... Letting go! Practicing these principals in all our affairs.... So true, and it does work if you work it. You can recover. An addict will always be but you can work to change your behaviors to stay in recovery.


    Any additional comments?

    Not just for Alcoholics, this will work for addicts of all types, smoking, food, pills, etc., anything that can consume the obsessive mind. Very powerful.

    Story
    "Blossom"

    What a joy to be able to listen to the Big Book. Over the years I have not been reading the book as often as I should. I had no problems with the narrating of the book. I do not care if the reader is alcoholic or not, nor do I care if the reading was done perfectly. Was able to listen to the book in three days, stories and all. By having the book on audible, I will probably listen to it every week or two. Was nice to hear the stories also. Will not listen to those that often, I know a part of me is in each one of them. Next time I will listen and read at the same time, then just listen.

    Story
    "Unbelievable, empowering, source of truth..."

    There are several descriptive words that surface for me when I think about this book:

    Raw
    Inspired
    Courageous
    Truth
    Timeless
    Humbling
    Spiritual
    Wisdom
    Precious

    While containing the inspired truth & wisdom of scripture, this book has the unique ability to match the knowledge level of the reader & keep everyone engaged at all levels...
    I found new truth & new perspective each time I have listened.
    "By their fruits ye shall know them..."
    I am in complete awe at the first 100 men who hacked a pathway out of the untrodden wilderness for others to follow. Looking for nothing more in return than to provide an opportunity to "those who still suffer".
    Unmatched level of selfless truth, experience, strength & HOPE!

    "Good inflection"

    I always worry about if I will connect with a person reading an audiobook. I found the reading here to have good inflection according to the text and its meaning. it felt like one alcoholic talking to another period I got a lot out of listening to this book and will listen to it again.

    "enjoyed listening"

    I enjoyed listening to the forward, chapters and stores, plus Jack Alexander's article. Narrorator was easy listening for me. One small change would have improved the experience, I wished chapter titles were included.

    "kinda dry."

    Would be better if there were several people reading it. 40 chapters, you think there would be more eumph, I feel asleep a few times.
