It's shocking to see the amount of material from this 1931 book that found it was into AA's big book, and Bill Wilson's thinking. This is a "must-have" for anyone interested in the history of Alcoholics Anonymous. Peabody should have been given more credit.

I am a recovering addict/alcoholic and I've struggled with elements of 12 step recovery programs for a long time. I heard about this book while researching alternative recovery methods and it is plain that Bill W borrowed heavily from this volume. The program of recovery outlined here is true to its name "common sense".

It contained some expanded information on how some of the program thoughts and ideas were gleaned from previous groups trying to accomplish a happy joyous and free living style!
