Around AA - Items of AA Information and Experience

Long View and Closer View In New GSO Offerings

Two items now available from the AA General Service Office take both long-range and close-up looks at Fellowship history.

Dr. Bob and the Good Oldtimers, a handsomely designed, generously illustrated hardcover book, portrays our co-founder as seen by many AAs and others who knew him well. His story is inseparable from that of all early AA in the Midwest, and members of those pioneering groups come alive on the pages with as much variety and vitality as the people in our own home groups today. We are shown, too, how Dr. Bob's character helped to shape the Fellowship.
