The fourth edition includes twenty-four new stories that provide contemporary sharing for newcomers seeking recovery from alcoholism in A.A. during the early years of the 21st century. Sixteen stories are retained from the third edition, including the "Pioneers of A.A." section, which helps the reader remain linked to A.A.'s historic roots, and shows how early members applied this simple but profound program that helps alcoholics get sober today. Approximately 21 million copies of the firstthree editions of "Alcoholics Anonymous" have been distributed. It is expected that the new fourth edition will play its part in passing on A.A.'s basic message of recovery. This fourth edition has been approved by the General Service Conference of Alcoholics Anonymous, in the hope that many more may be led toward recovery by reading its explanation of the A.A. program and its varied examples of personal experiences which demonstrate that the A.A. program works.

On Kosh67
Anybody who gets that enraged about a simple book probably has some serious problems and a personality disorder to address himself.
Especially when he's talking about a program that has helped millions of people for over 75 years in many countries around the world get sober and live productive lives.

It's just a book man! You probably need more meetings to experience the real program.

Ouch! I would assume that Kosh67 had a very bad experience with AA. // I am not an AA'er nor am I a"friend of Bill W". // I do know that the Alcoholics Anonymous program has helped thousands and thousands of people find sobriety. // Sure, even the highly touted Bill W had his disease bite him on the butt in his dying days, but that just goes to show what alcoholism can do. // Go check out Rational Recovery, if you wish, but don't discount AA based on an unhappy customer's rant here. // Sorry, Kosh67...
