We hear a lot of names associated with Alcoholics Anonymous - Jung, James, Rockefeller, Silkworth, Ignatia, Peabody, Shoemaker, Hazard and many others. Key Players is a book for those who'd like to know more about these contributors to AA history without having to buy and read 300 page biographies about each one. Learn more about early members like Burwell, Parkhurst, Snyder and Mann in 7 and 8 page chapters. Get the highlights of AA forerunners like the Washingtonians and the Water Street Mission. The foremost "key player" in AA history is Bill Wilson and we take a close look at his family background, troubled childhood, LSD experimentation and alleged extramarital affairs. It's all pretty interesting.
