Format: Hardcover
The book, "As Bill Sees It", delivers exactly what the title promises. This is a gleaning of the best thinking of the founder of AA. Whether you are well acquainted with AA literature, or simply a curious first time reader, this book is an excellent resource.
The text is a compilation from a variety of Bill W.'s works, including letters and talks given as well as selections from the "Big Book", AA's Bible. Each selection centers around a particular topic or theme, and is succinct and though-provoking. The exhaustive index is very helpful, and guides the reader to other works in which the subjects are covered in greater detail.

I recommend this book to anyone who has a desire to stop drinking, as well as to the family and friends of alcoholics who seek a greater understanding.

This was originally titled "The AA Way of Life", but was later changed because the book was the veiwpoint of only one man - Bill Wilson. There is a lot of plain basic common sense and wisdom in these snippets gleaned from years of Wilson's writings. It's not bad for use as a reflective reader for daily meditation/contemplation.

Nice solid companion reader. Its brief readings are good for the newcomer to help take the program's teachings in smaller bites.
Well worth adding to your library.

This title with quotes from the writing of Bill (one of the founders of AA) is essential for the recovering Alcoholic. It can be used as inspirational reading by an individual and it can be used as a base for discussion in an AA group. I have found it helpful and enlightening. And as a Christian, I have found that the words are in agreement with scripture. Not at all "preachy" but very humble with much wisdom. There is an excellent subject index in the front that pulls together the writings on a relevant subject. Each entry is one page long. So this little gem could be used as a "devotional". Highly recommended. Larry
