The Little Red Book for Women

Overview

Published in 1957, The Little Red Book is known as the foremost study guide to the Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous.

Overview

Published in 1957, The Little Red Book is known as the foremost study guide to the Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous. However, the original volume, filled with practical advice for sober living, was written by two anonymous men who, presumably, considered their audience to be comprised predominantly, if not entirely, of men. That's why Hazelden's new edition is written expressly for women. It features the original text of The Little Red Book along with annotated passages addressing issues related to how women experience addiction and recovery. The annotations, written by best-selling author Karen Casey, introduce women to the extraordinary camaraderie of Alcoholics Anonymous and the restorative powers of Twelve Step recovery.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Since 1946, The Little Red Book has served as a guidepost for participants in Alcoholics Anonymous. Revising that book's often male-directed advice, this new edition is written specifically for women going through the recovery process. Descriptions of the famous 12 steps make up the bulk of the book, and while the steps themselves are not rewritten for this publication, the analysis and discussion surrounding each step is geared toward women. Designed to be studied repeatedly, the pocket-sized guide is always reassuring and brims with advice on overcoming addiction. Notes in the margins speak to women readers, giving additional guidance on seeking female sponsors, relieving guilt, getting over the need to be perfect, dealing with low self-esteem, engaging in relaxing activities (like exercise and meditation) and maintaining a healthy balance between what others need and personal needs. A Q&A section and suggestions for further reading (including Alcoholics Anonymous, Fourth Edition; and Stools and Bottles) round out this encouraging book. (Feb.)
