Short biography
For those of you who don't know him, Mel B. is an A.A. old-timer, a recovering alcoholic who got sober in Alcoholics Anonymous in 1950 during the early days of the fellowship, when he was a patient in the state hospital in his hometown, Norfolk, Nebraska. He writes anonymously on subjects related to alcoholism and was the principal author of Pass It On, AA's authorized biography of co-founder Bill Wilson. He has also contributed more than fifty articles to The Grapevine, the international journal of Alcoholics Anonymous. He has been an active member of A.A. for more than fifty years. He is regarded as one of the top historians writing about Alcoholics Anonymous; in addition to this present volume, 101 Meeting Starters: A Guide to Better Twelve Step Discussions, February 2007, he has published six other widely read books on the Alcoholics Anonymous program. The following are all of Mel's books for viewing, after which I encourage you to read all of Mel's many articles that he submitted to our meeting in print - The AA Grapevine Magizine.
