Suggested Readings

In addition to the Legacy Guide, there are many helpful resources available to use throughout your recovery.  The Legacy Guide is a combination of The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous and the bible.  Both of which are must reads!

Once we begin Living in the GO, the personal growth never stops and what better way to grow than reading!  Over the years, we have found a great deal of books that have helped us continue to live happy, joyous and free and we would like to share those with you!

The Fat Book was created as a study aid for those who are looking for a deeper understanding of the Alcoholics Anonymous “Big Book.” The book is broken down into three parts. Part One contains exact copy of the Big Book First Edition on the left-hand pages and A.A. history, insights, and background information on the corresponding right hand “A” pages. We hope this helps you unpack deeper meaning by providing clarity and context without changing a single word of the original text as printed in 1939.

This special edition of Alcoholics Anonymous is a reproduction of the first printing of the first edition of the Big Book as it was published in 1939. This faithful replica of the original — featuring red cloth binding, thick paper and the colorful “circus cover” — was published to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Big Book.
