Written by a longtime member of Alcoholics Anonymous, A Simple Program is a faithful modernization of the "Big Book"'s complete core text. An invaluable boon for all members of A.A. and other 12-step programs, it is also a helpful guide for those whose loved ones are battling addiction and for anyone interested in matters of spiritual or mental health.… (more)
