Overview

The story of Alcoholics Anonymous's birth at Dr. Bob's home in Akron on June 10, 1935. Tells what early AAs did in their meetings, homes, and hospital visits; what they read; how their ideas developed from the Bible, Oxford Group, and Christian literature. Depicts roles of A.A. founders and their wives.

From the Author:

Most in today's A.A. know that A.A. was born in Akron, Ohio, on June 10, 1935--the day A.A. co-founder Dr. Bob had his last drink. If they read A.A.'s own DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers, they see how important the Bible was in early A.A. and learn a bit about the early A.A. meetings. What they did not know, until this title was put together, were the rich events that led up to and contributed to A.A.'s formation in Akron, beginning in 1931. Also, they did not know what factors contributed to A.A. ideas. They did not know what the early meetings did. And, in short, they did not have an entertaining, factual, documented story of the birth of A.A. and its ideas. This book has been the popular source of information for thousands. It received a thumbs up from Library Journal when the first edition was published.
