Bill W., the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, first penned these essays on A.A.’s Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions for publication in the Grapevine, the Fellowship’s monthly magazine.  The Twelve Steps focus on the program of recovery from alcoholism, and the Twelve Traditions deal with issues that affect the unity of the A.A. group and the worldwide Fellowship as a whole. This book clarifies each of the suggested Twelve Steps that constitute the A.A. way of life and each of the Traditions that deal with how groups function to carry the message of recovery of alcoholism to the still-suffering alcoholic. Originally published in 1952, this classic book is used by A.A. members and groups around the world. This is the only A.A.W.S.-authorized e-book version of Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions.


  • Not an AA Tool in this format

    By BlueCanyonBroom
    Still a good read. I cannot follow in the WE of the fellowship with this version, nor can I sponsor UNLESS they have it too. In the end WHEN you know our books, you know where things are well enough to follow and share- til then its a 21st century AA adventure to wrestle content that is mismatched to the original printed text. Change comes hard to us!
  • The book is great.. however

    By MickWolfiv
    The page numbers don’t match up to the actual book so if someone tells you to read a page number you have to search on the app to match up the page
  • Horrible

    Page numbers do not align with the physical bug so it is very frustrating using this product.
  • Pages

    Why can’t the page numbers on ebook align with real life book? We need this fixed!!!
  • Page numbers changing?

    By nvmike24
    Very difficult to follow along at meetings because the page numbers change with orientation. They never match the actual book. This $5.99 book is not useful to me as intended. How do I get a refund?
  • Excellent content, but...

    Please update the e-version to include the page numbers of the hard copy.
  • Page Numbers not aligned with hardcover book

    By CML040352
    If you do a search for a page it is not aligned with the actual page numbers in the hardcover book. The page numbers change depending upon the size font you want to read and makes this very difficult to use if you're in a book study meeting. The hardcover book has 192 pages so I attempted to change the font style and size to represent 192 pages and it is impossible to do that. The only way that you can use this book in a book study is to do a search for the words when the chairperson begins to speak. Please please please change this so that this is a better useful tool in meetings.
  • Step Seven???

    By NYR30
    I love the hard copy of this book, but the iBook seems to have truncated Step Seven midstream. Anyone else have this problem?
  • Glitch?

    Love the book it saved my life, but I can't seem to get it downloaded. All the other aa books were a breeze, but this one will not come down from the cloud. Hopefully this glitch will be solved soon.
