I never get sick of listening to this

This is what I listen to as I wind down at night, and even use it to lull me to sleep. Not because they're boring at all! But because the subject matter is so vital and uplifting and comforting. I know that my inner princess (her majesty the baby), anxiety hamster and distraction monkey will all calm down and shut up while listening to Joe and Charlie (who has a slow Southern drawl), so I'm able to relax into a peaceful, inner-chatter-free sleep. Each time I listen, I take away a little bit more, and I love the clarity with which they explain the allergy and phenomenon of craving. The way they explain how to do Step 4 is unlike any other I've heard. Someday, when I revisit my steps, I'll do Step 4 the way they outline it. I'm so thankful I found this amazing Big Book Workshop!

Issue at hour 3

The recording skips a chunk of the book at the 3:00:30. I have listened to Joe and Charlie via their tapes and you tube workshops. This recording Stops just as they get to Chapter 2 in the big book and then skips ahead cutting a large but important part out.

Missing. 5-11

Where is the rest of it? Why did you cut out chapters 5-11? Other than that great quality audio.

Parts are missing

There are several parts of the weekend that Joe and Charlie do that are missing. It skips steps 6-7 entirely. Disappointing.

Starts off good but it misses Steps 5 - 11

I like big book studies. Especially when given by Joe and Charlie, but a 3rd of the content is missing (steps 5 - 11). There is no way I could give this anymore than 2 stars under those circumstances. I'm almost considering a refund but I don't want to lose the content that I already have because the material is good. I have the entire recording on CD but wanted it as a recorded book and I'm disappointed that so much of the recording is missing. This needs to be updated and the additional content needs to be restored. If that happens this recording could easily be 5 stars in all categories.

Very poorly edited, not full content

This may be 'live recordings' but it has been jump cut so poorly that you can hear where they stopped the edit in the middle of a paragraph.

I have a podcast copy of Joe and Charlie, with no editing involved. I wanted an audible quality copy of these speakers. However, so much has been edited out that it just isn't worth it.

This content needs to be pulled from Audible and folk's money returned to them.

Very helpful, uplifting and entertaining… and I’m not even an alcoholic.

I’d recommend this book/audio to anyone. I’m not even an alcoholic and it literally helped change my life the past month. If you do anything that negatively affects your life and you’d sincerely like to quit… you’ll listen to this.

Only 5 steps covered in this book!

I love Joe & Charlie and the Big Book Studies I have attended have had a profound and wonderful affect on my recovery.
When I saw this on audible, I quickly added it to my library and started listening. Absolutely wonderful stuff - really gets me thinking about my program and how to explain certain aspects to sponsees and fellow AAs.
However, when the 4th step finishes, it goes directly into step 12, missing out 5-11.
The content that is included is excellent, but less than half the steps are there!!
Better to find a free recording online than bother with paying for an incomplete version.
It was good as far as it went x

Wonderfully natural insight into a tricky subject

Such an inspiring and thought provoking guide on the big book and recovery from the point of those who have been through it.

Great listen.

Easy on the ears, humorous and extremely relevant if you are in recovery. Well worth a listen.
