As a person in recovery for some time, I found this book a real treasure. Nothing is added or taken away from the first part of the Big Book but it is presented with a concordance, glossary and a space for notes. Having gone through numerous Big Books in study meetings and just giving them away, this one is a real treasure for me. Some historical notes and a copy of the original manuscript make it a must for us AA History fans. Keep coming back to this one!

I have purchased many Big Books over the years. This is my third purchase of the Anonymous Press Study Edition of Alcoholics Anonymous. I use the Big Books myself and I give them away to friends. This purchase is for me. I am in a new study and having fresh pages to highlight and underline words and write definitions is delightful.
This book is absolutely elegant. It is leather bound and the pages are gilded in gold. I take it with me proudly.

This is a perfect study guide for me. I can write down my most important take-aways as I ready them, take notes as I review the reading with my sponsor, and use the circa 1939 dictionary to get at the real intended meaning of some of the more difficult words. The inclusion of the 2 indicies (by topic and by word) is very handy. I must also add that having the original uneditted manuscript is incredibly valuable. I never realized how much the editors toned down the first edition. It is like Bill W told me, for example, that I should either reread the book again or throw it away but the editors decided not to allow him to tell me this (see page 27, paragraph 60.2 of the manuscript). The added emphasis is so helpful!
I highly recommend this study aid.

Format: Paperback
This book is great for the alcoholic who wants to learn more about the history of the AA Big Book while following the AA Big Book. This book shows where the wording has changed from the first edition and has the exact reproduction of the 1938 Original Manuscript of Alcoholics Anonymous. It also has a dictionary (circa 1937) with the definitions as they would have been used in the original manuscript. It also has a word index which shows the page number and paragraph where an instance of a word occurs. There is also a Subject Index (ex: page/paragraph where the subject "Faith without works is dead" occurs). The Personal Stories from 1938 provide good reading. Highly recommended for additional study of the Big Book.

This study edition is extremely useful. I love having the blank page for every page of text. It provides an organized way of jotting down notes in their proper place. It will never replace my 4th edition that has been through hell and back with me (coffee stains, duct tape and illegible notes on the margins of every page!) but it has some things that the 4th edition cant boast; A copy of the original manuscript, a partial dictionary (very useful for words that have a different meaning today) and a word/phrase reference (want to find where the word recovered is mentioned? or spiritual experience? look it up! 90 in 90?....oh wait, that was NEVER in the big book!). This book also has all the stories from the first edition. One AWESOME deal for $17.00!! Buy a few and give them away, they are a great gift for you BB thumping friends!

This is a great book for anyone interested in the beginnings and history of Alcoholics Anonymous. The authors wanted to share Precisely How We Have Recovered and this working manuscript shows what words were changed to achieve this important goal. It emphasizes how careful they were in choosing the precise words to convey their meaning. From a student of the Big Book, I have found this extremely interesting and helpful.
