This one is not really a speaker meeting this is a fascinating recording from 1978 of Ruth Hock, AAs 1st secretary talking about Bill W and the early history of AA and the creation of the Big Book. I highly recommend if you are a bit of an AA history geek, and even if you are not.

There is a Q and A at the end, you cant hear the questions and she doesn't really recap the questions well. This ends a little abruptly when the meeting leader is calling on her sponsor Cliff. Recorded in Glendale AZ 3-12-78.

The Study Edition of The Big Book

studyeditionI have one of these and it is one of my favorite items, a really excellent and useful for book study meetings or as a gift to a newcomer who is going to be heading to one.

The First 164 pages of The Big Book with lined blank pages opposite each page of text for note taking.

  • Includes the original Foreword
  • The Doctor's Opinion
  • Dr. Bob's Story.
  • Bound in black bonded leather. 

Paragraph numbers along side the text for easy reference.  Entire Original Manuscript (about) including the stories. Easy to read retyped version. Includes paragraph numbers corresponding to the modern text for easy comparison.  

Footnotes explaining historical and obscure references in the text.  

Footnotes documenting all 79 differences between the modern text and the original 1st printing text of the 1st 164 pages (about). Yes, believe it or not, the basic text has been changed 79 times since it was first published.

Two place keeping ribbons.  Special "lay flat" binding.
