Publisher's Summary

The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous is an incredible book. Since 1939 millions have read it to find a path to sobriety and more. The history of where the 12 steps came from will help give a deeper understanding to all that this book has to offer. After thousands of hours in Big Book studies and walking dozens of others through its pages, I am offering a history reference to where the spiritual steps came from that will hopefully help you see more of what this process involves. I welcome your feedback and look forward to the many promises this book holds for those of us who have used it and those just beginning to.

This person had no idea what he is talking about!

This is in no way sanctioned or approved by AA. This idiot thinks Eby was a woman...and that is just the beginning of the inaccuracies!! False advertising!! Read the actual Big Book. Nonsense like this kills!!

Do not buy this book

What disappointed you about The Twelve Steps to Sobriety and the History of How it Works?

The content was false ex: Ebby was a male not a she. Poor narration. I pray nobody takes this books as gospel truth

Has The Twelve Steps to Sobriety and the History of How it Works turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not at all I will be more careful on the author I choose.

Would you be willing to try another one of Glenn Langohr’s performances?

Never

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

All

Any additional comments?

Only people who understand this deadly disease should write about it

12 steps

I was hoping for a better breakdown on the 12 steps.
Not just a simple definition of the 12 steps.
It just seems that this a intro without any of the application. Very disappointing because you have to buy another book to get the tools to apply. It should be explained that it is only a intro!!!

Great Audio Book

Loved the way the author read this book and how smooth it was! The passion is his voice was soothing. This audio, listening to the words and not reading it is a better way for me to understand my problem with alcohol. Thank you

More religious than Recovery Based

I was turned off by this book. I did see anything factual, it seemed like opinion on how "bible versus" related to the AA big book. waste of time.
