This is part of a one day workshop led by Bob D from Las Vegas speaking on the topic of How to Recover, at an in-person Big Book workshop held in Scarborough in August of 2022. He covers through Step 1 and I do not have the rest of this workshop. I have looked around and cant find a full copy, if any of you have it and you would care to share it please email me, otherwise this is what it is.

Quick Reminder: If you are in the vicinity of Rochester NY or Honolulu Hi on the weekend of the 3rd they each have AA events happening. https://scast.us/events

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.
