Key Principles of Successful Recovery

The AA slogans, often viewed as rather simple platitudes, are actually principles for good living, according to Mel B. and his co-author, Hazelden editor Bill P. While these principles are applicable in anybody’s life, they are especially useful for recovering persons. This book shows why they are useful and should not be lightly dismissed in one’s ongoing quest for sobriety.

My Search for Bill W.
Grateful for his own sobriety, Mel B. took a special interest in the personal qualities that contributed to Bill W.'s life and work. The AA co-founder is presented here as a complex and sometimes troubled man with a combination of unusual abilities. Once driven by a strong need for business success, Bill found his true work in helping others learn how to help themselves. This report notes that the strengths of AA, and also some of its weaknesses, can be abstracted from Bill's life and charismatic personality.

Ebby
Bill’s Story in the AA Big Book tells of a sober friend who called on him in late 1934 to bring the Oxford Group message that saved his life and led to the formation of AA. But the friend, Ebby Thacher, eventually drank again and had a troubled life of frequent slips before finding a measure of peace in his last years. Bill never forgot what Ebby had done for him, however, and was his friend and supporter to the end, taking special steps to assure that Ebby had proper care in his final years.
