Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Alcoholics Anonymous - Big Book 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 211 reviews.
Jordan Rudin More than 1 year ago
This ebook is the second edition, while the first 164 are the same the stories are not. Great if all you need is the first 164 but going to big book meetings this is not very useful if you are doing a reading from the stories. Therefore this ebook did not meet the purpose i downloaded it for.

If you started to read this book and it is not for a project than you probably need it. If it is for a family member it could be very useful to help you understand the disease of alcoholism. If you started to read this book because you think you may have a problem with alcohol, well, you most likely do. If you need to see Similarities read some of the stories in the back. The first 164 pages is how it works. It is the instruction manual to freedom and a new way of living. Give yourself a chance and try it, you are worth it. What have you got to lose that you haven't already? Remember it is only 1 day at a time.

This is a second edition book because the 3rd and 4th edition copies are still held under copywrite law by AA. Because its copywrite is expired, this edition can be distributed by another party. No money for the sale of this electronic text goes to AA. At the next general assembly meeting in New York the topic of realeasing AA literature into ebook format will be discussed and voted on. If the vote passes it still may take a couple years before we see current editions of AA literature available electronically where profits will go to AA World Services.

This Book and This program have SAVED MY LIFE.. I have always been searching for the answer... I have found it for me.A life that far exceeds my wildest Dreams.. Thank You Bill W and the people of this Amazing Program, for I believe it could truly be the salvation of this planet..

There is no such thing as an 'out dated'Big Book. The first 164 pages have been helping miillions get, and stay, sober since 1935. It is worth it at any price.

What can I say? Everytime I read the "Big Book" I find something that I didn't see the last time I read through it. (an earlier edition of course) -- The Book isn't changing, maybe I am! My hard copy is 24 years old and it looks it! It's nice to have it on my Nook so I can find those passages that always seem to come to mind. I think the Big Book and e-books are a great combo -- give it a try, the price is certainly right. If you don't get a Big Book for yourself, there is certainly someone in your life who may need one.

1 and 2nd stories. First 164 pages is 2nd edition. Wondering why the 3rd and 4th havent been released for eBook readers?

This is the SECOND edition. So it is missing many stories like the Third and fourth edition have. One story that for sure isnt in this is "Acceptance was the key" by Dr. Paul. I like having the nook version so I can put my notes on it like my big book but highly disapointed it is the second edition. Maybe the head office wont realese the third or fourth edition for Nook??? I just dont get it. Its still good to have the original 164 pages with me.

I have read countless self-help books, attended many seminars and workshops and listened to dozens of programs designed to help you achieve more and be happier. I can honestly say that none of those experiences taught me what this book did. The stories and no-nonsense approach to taking accountability for your life had me seeing changes almost instantly. I still can't believe the difference it has made in my life. I am happier, healthier and more loving than I have ever been in my entire life after reading and working through the steps. It is a book for ANY addiction, whether yours be drugs, alcohol, food, shopping, etc. Much love and luck in your journey!

A must have! This book is a must have for anyone hoping to recover from Alcoholism. This book, along with the program of Alcoholics Anonymous, has made my life peaceful and free of anxiety...finally. Get this book..but most importantly... get a sponsor and start working the steps.

This book & the AA program can save your life, it did mine !!

I have read the other reviews and it seems that others are disappointed in this because it is only the second addition...SO WHAT!!! It still has the original 164 pages of the Big Book unchanged...the stories will change with each new edition printed but does not bother me because they are only stories of how others developed and maintained a relationship with thier Higher Power...if you read on page 36 of this ebook it will explain what the stories are there for...concentrate on the first 164 pages. I will enjoy this because I can take it with me EVERYWHERE!

This version only has 300 pages and the contents are missing just some jumbled letters. Fourth edition not available. At least 1.99 version has contents and most stories from 1st and 2nd editions. Disapppointing.
