2010 Reprint of 1951 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. The little Red Book evolved from a series of notes originally prepared for "Twelve Step" suggestions to A.A. beginners. It lends supplementary aid to the study of the book "Alcoholics Anonymous" and contains many helpful topics for discussion meetings. Many groups have adopted this brief summarization of the A.A. Recovery Program expounded in the Big Book.
