Big book study guide?

Post by Niagara »

Hey folks

Can anyone recommend a big book study guide.....physical copy, and any other books that might help with looking deeper into the text of the big book and the steps?

Thanks in advance :)

Searrch for Big Book Awakening, you could buy it for 8$ pluss S&H. I am sure they ship it across the continent. Mark H mentions it in his talk. Geared to help a group of people taken through the steps.

Basically those statements (like below) are converted into questions, so you can answer them and see if you really need the HP or just can survive going to meetings. Hard drinkers won't understand this. :wink:

pg.xxv-¶3-L3
Am I the type regarded as hopeless. Wants to quit but can’t?

pg.xxv-¶5-L2
Am I the type with whom every method I tried had failed completely?
Is there anything else I can do?
