About this ebook

Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill W. once wrote that this collection of excerpts from his writings was “meant to serve as an aid to individual meditation and a stimulant for group discussion,” and since its publication in 1967 it has done that and more for millions of A.A. members around the world. Hundreds of brief passages — excerpted from the Big Book and other A.A. literature — address the principles of gratitude, spirituality, acceptance and a host of other themes central to living a serene life free from alcohol.
With a topical index to point readers to subjects of particular interest, As Bill Sees It is an easy-to-use resource of inspiration, comfort, and humor that provides a sense of belonging for those on the path of recovery. Whether seeking insight on a specific topic or opening the book at random, readers will find that there is always more to discover. The passages are perfect for discussion in group settings or for personal reflection.
As Bill Sees It, formerly published asThe A.A. Way of Life, has been approved by the General Service Conference.

After purchasing, this does not leave a icon on your phone that you can go to to read this book. You have to go to the Play Store, search for it, and pull it up to read it. There should be an icon that would be located in your app drawer for this book.

Love the book. I love AA history and this helps to bring back the mindset through time of other recovered drunks and how this program applies throughout the years and still today, some 87, almost 88 years later. One drunk taking the message to another and passing it on. I do wish the app would allow icons on the desktop of or pages of our phones. It stinks going through my phone to dig it out of Google Play Books every time I want to read it.

A great resource for any AA to help stay sober and learn what the co-founder Bill W. originally intended AA to be.
