The one redeeming feature of this volume are the updated stories for 2007 that are always interesting and inspirational.
If you are considering buying this edition for your main AA reference, I would strongly recommend against buying it. I would suggest either the standard hardcopy version or the pocket sized soft cover edition.
It is cheap, too, but the "stories" are real recovering alkies, not rehab just-recovered types, ( at least one story is even written by a non alcoholic).
The Lois history page is inaccurate, also.
The paragraph breaks are clear, plus there is ample space for your to add your own annotations.
The font changes to larger font in the back section of the book which is helpful for people like me who are sight challenged.
There is no better book that I have ever read that will help a person to understand their addiction to alcohol, and the wide reach of the addictions impact on all aspects of your life personally, with those you love and who love you, and with the world at large.
Despite the Judeo-Christian principles that the founder's of this organization have used as their spiritual reference, it still will work for those with or without a 'faith' based in any culture.
I personally have been amazed to see the complete transformation of people -- over time, often a great amount of time -- that this book and this organization has facilitated.
With the (as suggested) 'least possible organization' AA has found a place in almost every community in the world. No other organization can make that claim.
This book is not published by AA World Services. The title implies to the prospective purchaser that this volume is in some way affiliated and endorsed by Alcoholics Anonymous.
The inference that this is an AA book ("AA" as author) is an unfortunate trend that has recently appeared. The cover of the book states "Including: New Personal Stories for the Year 2007". Does this mean we should now watch for new "versions" of the Big Book with new stories every year? Will they "update" the basic text next?
Someone is making money by presenting this as coming from AA - and it is not from AA. Better to support the New York AA World Services.
Do NOT buy this book, but DO get the official AA Big book from your local AA chapter or Alcoholics Anonymous World Services.
The editing's terrible and one of the saving grace's of the big book of Alchoholics Anonymous is that the first 164 pages have remained the same. Guess what? THEY'RE NOT THE SAME HERE! The page formatting is terrible. It's great to be told by your sponsor to go to page 21 and read of the real alcoholic. You can't do this with this book. Do yourself a favour and get the real one.
