The Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions and The Big Book have changed my life. Thanks to my rehab counselors, as well as these two wonderful books, I have been sober for more than a decade. It has been a tough ride, but I took it one day at a time and with the help of these two books, I have been able to survive this long.
Though the book talks about essays that were written in 1953, it is still relevant even today. Go for this book if you want to become sober and stay sober.
