Synopsis

Published in 1957, The Little Red Book is known as the foremost study guide to the Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous. However, the original volume, filled with practical advice for sober living, was written by two anonymous men who, presumably, considered their audience to be comprised predominantly, if not entirely, of men. That's why Hazelden's new edition is written expressly for women. It features the original text of The Little Red Book along with annotated passages addressing issues related to how women experience addiction and recovery. The annotations, written by best-selling author Karen Casey, introduce women to the extraordinary camaraderie of Alcoholics Anonymous and the restorative powers of Twelve Step recovery.

We hope The Little Red Book for Women opens new avenues of thought and helps the AA member arrive at his or her successful interpretation of the program.

The Little Red Book for Women makes frequent reference to basic matter in Alcoholics Anonymous, fourth edition.
