This is the original study guide to the Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous. Filled with practical information for those first days of sober living, this little book:

I only got half way through this book... the delivery by the narrator is soul less and the writing is too much list reading out a list. Pretty boring and difficult to get into.
"Helps me understand addicts in my life."
It's a serious content. at times difficult , painful topics for ppl and this guy is super chipper. Great voice but a little to Sunny if someone is bottoming out. None the less the message is life changing and a spiritual in content of me, healing. Not religion!
Every chapter. The whole book is.
Makes me a better person and understanding of an addict close to me in my personal life.
"the little red book"
Yes, I listen to this on my way to work. Whatever step I am on it gives me an overview.
Reader makes the material more interesting than the written book. I hear new things that I never noticed because I can replay the material.
I would listen again because I am interested in the material....
Many memorable moments when it is obviouse the narrator doesn't relate to what he is reading.
Would have been better without mis- inflections, missed punctuation...and if the narrator were a drunk(which is not an insult..just an inside joke)
I get the material...it will help,me where I apply it.
The narrator is not at fault...he is obviously not a drunk. There are many inflections which were not correct, as well as mispronunciations and missed punctuation the director should have caught. ...and maybe would have if they understood the material or perhaps even read it. I got the feeling they threw it together to make a buck because they knew it was of interest, but didn't take the time to read the book. In fact if I had to guess I would say it was the narrators first read through. I may listen again because, knowing the material...having read the book and lived the experience...I still get information from it. I would love to see it redone properly.
First self help book I have downloaded
Very helpful information but no substitute for the AA Big Book (can not be downloaded to Canada)
Delivery too fast, no time to absorb thoughts. Very poor for alcoholics in early recovery for that reason.
At this time I can think of nothing specific, but I know as I listened there were a few things that emerged for me.
"red book will travel."
Yes I would and do. Not being able to attend meetings because of my job, which involves traveling at night, it keeps me focused and sober.
I guess as a member of AA, it enables me to listen to the steps, and help me continue to live my life in a productive, happy life.
He has a very positive voice, that keeps me positive and not alone in the quest to maintain my sobriety.
"Some aspects of The Little Red Book"
Nice, convenient, easier, softer way to have AA fed by a silver spoon. Get a sponsor.
