As AA Historian Ernie Kurtz put it, “Storytelling is the essential dynamic of AA.” Do Tell! contains thirty stories – an equal number by women and men – by atheists and agnostics who tell us “what it was like, what happened and what it’s like now” as they made their way to a life of long-term sobriety within the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous. It is in sharing our “experience, strength and hope” in recovery that we are able to help others within our Fellowship. There are today far too few stories by and about nonbelievers within “traditional” AA, which all too often is overtly and overly religious. Thus this book, a “richly textured collection of recovery stories by non-believers... a book that would certainly have made a difference in the early days of my stumble toward sobriety”. (From the Foreword by Marya Hornbacher, author of Waiting: A Nonbeliever’s Higher Power) As the Introduction to Do Tell! puts it, the book gives a voice to atheists and agnostics who often feel isolated within the rooms of AA and is one more step towards reshaping the culture of Alcoholics Anonymous.
