Key Players in AA History
by Bob K

Overview


Who are the other “key players” in the history of Alcoholics Anonymous? There are the co-founders, of course, Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith. And there’s Dr. William Silkworth, Bill’s doctor at Towns Hospital. And Marty Mann, one of the first women in AA, and the founder of the National Council on Alcoholism. And Clarence Snyder, who started the first AA meeting in Cleveland. And many, many more fascinating men and women. Key Players in AA History by bob k not only tells us about these people, but in the process also provides a fresh understanding of the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous. The book is well researched and a true pleasure to read. As Ernie Kurtz and Bill White put it at the end of their Foreword for this wonderful and engaging book: "Let the stories begin".
