We have a special program today. Grounded on the 29-volume "Dick B. A.A. History and Christian Recovery Reference Set." We are currently making the entire set of 29 volumes available for only $249.00--with FREE(!) Shipping within the United States. (If you live in another country, please contact us at DickB@DickB.com for Shipping charges to countries outside the U.S.) That comes to an average of less than $8.60 per book! (Please see the upper right-hand corner of the www.DickB.com front page for details of the special.)
One of the questions we recently received from someone who had just ordered the Reference Set was: "In what order would you suggest I read these 29 volumes?"
"The Dick B. A.A. History and Christian Recovery Reference Set" is not meant to be read all at once. It's for a lifetime. It's for study groups. It's for special categories as to which there are questions. But most of our friends have been voracious in their apetite to read all the books when they arrive in the mail. And they ask how to start.
Time is short today. But we have grouped the books into six categories listed for your reading guidance.
These are: (1) Approaches to the Newcomer. (2) Basic A.A. Fellowship Ideas. (3) The Cofounders' Contributions. (4) People and Programs That Fleshed out Early A.A.'s Successes. (5) Twelve Steps and "the New Version of the Program" published in 1939. (6) A.A.'s Successes and Cures.
If time permits, I will go through all 29 books briefly, tell you what they contribute, and suggest the order in which you can read them for best digestion and usage.
