AA Comes Of Age – A Brief History Of Alcoholics Anonymous

Bill W. tells how AA started, how the Steps and Traditions evolved, and how the AA Fellowship grew and spread overseas. Nearly half a century has gone by since A.A.’s historic 1955 Convention in St. Louis, when the founding members passed on to the entire Fellowship the responsibility for the three Legacies of Recovery, Unity, and Service.

This book takes A.A. members and interested friends on a quick tour of the Convention, traces the history and development of the Three Legacies, and looks at A.A. through the eyes of some early nonalcoholics who influenced the Fellowship’s history.

AA Comes Of Age goes into detail about key players other than Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob that were pivotal into the development of Alcoholics Anonymous like Dr. Harry Tiebout, Sister Mary Ignatia, and Father Ed Dowling among others.
