I enjoyed this article by Jack Alexander (1941) re. A.A.


Just thought I'd share. I'm sure it's been shared before, but I didn't see anything recent. If it's inappropriate somehow in this forum, apologies and please delete.

It's so interesting to read something from "the early days" of A.A. Plus, I could really relate.

That is a great article indeed. And played a vital role in the growth of AA. An important part of the program's history. Thanks for posting!

Yup, it's a wonderful article and really got AA out into the mainstream.

The funny thing is that Jack Alexander was sent to AA to debunk it, to root it out. After spending some time with them, he was won over in a big way.
