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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Little Comapnion Book March 15, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical July 3, 2002
Format:Hardcover
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bill Wilson again. November 30, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am now getting really into the very helpful (but apparently it's not for everybody) 12th step movement. It is allowing me to develop into the person I was meant to be. I have had to do a lot of deep work to overcome abuse, some of it I now know was imagined but it became real to me and others did participate, buying in. In any case. I am loving the simple primers that the old-timers left us. We need help to learn a new way of life and this simple book retains its freshness and feels like it brings me into the company of those early pioneers, so that I can step up and pass on what I have gained to others who are just coming into the program, as well as benefit everyone I know, for I am a far better person these days.

One page readings and sayings of the wisdom by one of the co-founders. Great for reading on a topic or meditation on the reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guidance and Insight
No need to even browse the index...Just open the book and let the topic "pop" out at you. Many excerpts from Bill's letters make this a great read.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok
the book is awesome-however there is writing on the pages of the book (someone's name) in black magic marker, so it can not be removed.
