The "EZ Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous" is a page-by-page "translation" of the original Alcoholics Anonymous published by AA founder Bill Wilson in the 1930s. It is intended to carry the AA message to modern readers who find the original "Big Book" hard to digest for any reason. The language is gender-neutral, and references to spirituality are more inclusive.
The book shows you how to:
Find a personal Higher Power
Livei n the now
Face problems fearlessly
Discover the real "you"
Make great friends in AA
The anonymous author of this work has taken a bold step by updating the language of the original "Big Book," which has barely changed since its introduction in 1939. -John Elm, PhD, AA member
Finally, a version of the '"Big Book" has arrived that's as inclusive as the program itself. The language does not assume the reader is male or Christian. -Jules Cardello, LMSW, Social Worker
The simple, direct writing makes the message of the Big Book much easier to understand without any loss of meaning. -Anonymous AA Member
