5.0 von 5 Sternen Read with an open mind 13. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
This book is a means for those who are willing to get help in this way to come out of place they are unhappy with. There are those who say that to drink or not to drink is a "choice" and that to call oneself an alcoholic is an escape of some sort. The people who make those assumptions are lucky enough not to be affllicted with the disease. For anyone who has the disease of alcoholism, they understand that it is absolutely not a choice and that it is a preexisting physical and psychological condition. This method of recovery is not for everyone. Nothing is appropriate for everyone, but it has worked for many millions of people. I am a very happy satisfied person as a direct result of this program. Criticisms and controversies will surround anything with a powerful message. The verbage of the book is not the point. The point is the message. If you are an alcoholic, there is help in the book. People who are not alcoholics, have no experience to lend their critiscms any validity.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Could use a little editing 14. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
The book is a very solid outline of basic actions and underlying spiritaul principles that can be used in the recovery from alcoholism. As it says in the book, this is ONE method, not THE method. For those who this does not work, perhaps they need to go elsewhere. For those who find success somewhere else, congratulations.
While there has been a general desire not to mess with the wording of the 1st half of the book, it may do this book well to undergo editing. The language used is sometimes out of date (i.e. - "the gay nightspots" has a very different meaning today than in 1939). The sentence structure is complex and the paragraphs are long. This affects the flow and causes the reader to lumber through numerous passaages.
If AA does not want to edit the first half of the book (which they refer to as the "main text"), perhaps they could publish a companion "modern day" Big Book - same concepts but with contempary writing.
Still, the book's content is brilliant: doctors, psychologists, spritiual leaders, law enforcement, etc. have all witnessed the results and thus supported the book's central themes. That tells the reader that there must be some validity here.
In the second half of the book are personal stories of recovery from alcoholism. Some of these are very powerful: "Fear of Fear", "Doctor, Alcoholic, Addict", "Freedom From Bondage". Other stories are out of date (the 3rd edition was published in 1976). I understand that a 4th edition is being prepared that will include more stories from gays, blacks, women, and people from outside the USA. That should help the readability of this book a lot.
Most AAs read read this book in the company of other recovering people, which probably helps clarify the confusing language. Still, freshening up the writing would make the content more accessible to a larger circle of people.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Main Text of AA 1. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This book, originally titled "Alcoholics" by Anonymous, is the life saving text of Alcoholics Anonymous. So as not to confuse it with the name of the organization, AAs refer to it as "The Big Book" (one edition of this has 575 pages.) It was first published in 1939 and primarially written by an out-of-work salesman who had a "Spiritual Awakening." And it shows in the dated, flowery writing style and the rural American Christian theology spread throughout.
But the message! If you are an alcoholic, as I am, you won't be able to put it down. The idea that we are not alone and there is an escape from alcoholism is amazing, life-saving, and even miraculous to those of us who have "been there." The Big Book is also useful to those trying to understand the alcoholic or addict in thier midst.
"Alcoholics Anonymous" outlines twelve suggested steps to recovery. The steps are designed to allow those in recovery to live lives free from the anger, resentments, depression, self-centeredness, and self-loathing that haunted us while living in our addictions. Critics of the book (and the organization) generally point to the spiritual aspects of the book and refer to it as a cult. Proponents of the book shake thier heads at these comments and beleive them to be extremist remarks from individiuals who are unwilling give up thier addictions.
Personally, I'd rather the particular religious beliefs of the author were not strongly stressed. And I'd rather he had found a ghost writer. But the book still stands as the most amazing and useful tool for addiction recovery ever presented to humanity.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book has helped to saved my life. 16. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Anyone who wants to learn about the disease of alcoholism will benefit by this book.
After reading some of the other reviews that have been written I find myself a little confused. At no point in the book Alcoholics Anonymous did anyone say it was a religion. I searched and searched for one sentence that implied it, but I couldn't find any. . If one person tells me that I'm stupid I may not believe it, but if a million people tell me I'm stupid then I better start believing. Millions of alcoholics have recovered from the disease of alcoholism by utilizing the A.A. Program. Most of them tried everything else imaginable before going to A.A. It is important to note that the format this book has not been revised since its conception in the 1930's, so some people may not appreciate the old-fashioned language. One writer also said "so called big book comes off as way to mysterious and risky." Alcoholism is mysterious and risky since thousands die every year from complications such as alcohol poison, hepatitis, liver and heart disease to name only a few. I am absolutely certain that the men and women who have watched their family members recover from alcoholism would not look at A.A. (As one reviewer put it) "a cruel tragedy that will one day be looked back upon as being as cruel as African American slavery." Instead, I am sure they are happy to once again have a sister, brother, mother, father, child or employee that is a productive member of society.
