I use with my AA group every week. ( )

This discusses, in detail & order, the 12 steps that a recovering alcoholic/addict must take in order to get their act together. The reasoning behind the steps & traditions are explained. Well worth reading if you are part of any 12 step program. Anyone who isn't would probably be better off devoting their time to the Big Book. ( )

the "anonymous" writer of this book is bill wilson, a cofounder of Alcoholics Anonymous. In the early years (1935-1945) groups had many "rules," which kept some people out. The traditions are a set of spiritual principles for the Groups, as the Steps are a set of such for the individual. These are much more well written essays than the "Big Book," but then, they deal with a more narrowly defined subject. ( )

This is a very useful book for anyone in AA. This is not a book on how to sober up. But it is a guide on how to get along, with yourself and with others in your group. Sobering up is roughly akin to re-socializing yourself and learning to play well with others. This book helps. ( )
