    This anthology contains 56 stories retired from the first three editions of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.

    The membership of Alcoholics Anonymous continues to grow and change, but these stories from the past will never be outdated. The essential A.A. story — “what we used to be like, what happened, and what we are like now” — is a constant. That timeless formula for A.A. talks rings just as true in these stories from our history as it does today in the meeting around the corner.
