Bill W My First 40 Years An Autobiography

$14.95 $13.95

This is an autobiography of Bill Wilson, one of the co-founders of AA.  It is an edited transcript of recordings he made during September, 1954, at the Hotel Bedford in the company of a man named Ed Bierstadt.  The book  contains interesting anecdotes on Bill’s first forty years of life. The  purpose of his recording these stories was to describe his childhood  development and how it related to his personality development and  subsequent descent into alcoholism. It ends abruptly at his speech before  the Oxford Group.  The Afterword briefly describes the ensuing thirtysix  years and contains many footnotes referring to other books of interest  about Bill W and the history of AA.  This book is very refreshing and  avoids the controversies that plague many other biographies.  To read the account of Bill’s spiritual experience  again, in his own words, is extremely compelling.
