Looking for a good book on AA
I have bought several books recently on Rational Recovery, SMART Recovery, SOS, but I wanted to get one on AA. I am trying to do my research on as many sober recover methods as possible, however, I don't have one on AA yet. Any suggestions?

I recently found a new revision of the Big Book on Nook, called the EZ Big Book of AA. It's a paragraph by revision of the 1939 original--same content but updated language. Much easier to digest. The author is Anonymous. It's not an official AA book (with World Service Office approval).

Here is an article on AA - I haven't read it yet - I don't know if it's fit to eat!
