Big Book of AA 2nd Edition
If anyone has spent any time in AA they know that our "Program" is based on 12 steps. These steps were created by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob and many others over a period of time trying to find the "cure" for alcoholism. The fist 164 pages of the Big book pretty much are the same from edition to edition, the second part of the book, the personal stories vary. The first 164 pages are the meat and potatoes of the AA program and how it became to be. Like any organization, there were some rough spots. Some might even say that we still have some rough areas to smooth out.
If you're going to the meetings, and haven't read the book, here's the ePub version of it that was on Google Books for some time. I don't think that I'm violating any copy write laws by allowing access to this. But if it IS still on Google Play / Books, I'm not able to find it any longer. You can download it here, and freely spread this version around. For what it's worth, there are some other free versions of the Big Book on Google Play, but they're more APPS for your phone than the book it self. The basic text is there, but just a slightly different format.
