Many thanks to the narrator and others involved

Clear and effective. The very minor changes from the original “big book“ adhere strictly to the structure, meaning and intention of the original text. We lose some of the references that no longer resonate, like “John Barleycorn” and other verbiage from a hundred years ago. Also, some wordy passages are shortened - in my opinion, for the better when it comes to the average reader. This book was clearly produced with great care. The narrator does a beautiful job. His reading is so down-to-earth, it’s like having an old, trusted friend tell you a comforting story full of humor, compassion, and clarity.

Not AA But a Decent Introduction

The AA Program is awesome and this book just skims the surface. It’s the difference between fake leather and real leather.

Great performance, Great content

Jim Johnston does a perfect and reassuring job with this content. The book itself is, for me, the ideal balance of verbosity and substance.
