    1. I enjoyed reading this from several points of view; of being a native of Akron, Ohio where AA was founded, as a counselor, and as a person who has seen AA succeed and seen it be less that successful. We so often have Bill W. touted as the poster child for AA because he was a "success". It is interesting to see that the man who led Bill W to the idea of AA through the Oxford Group was less successful and remained out of recovery more than he was in it.

    2. A bittersweet read. Ebby, the man who originally carried the message to Bill W was only able to put together about fifteen years of sobriety during the thirty-two years following his initial contact with the Oxford Group.

    3. What a difficult book to write. Ebby is so often thought of as the one who "failed" in sobriety. But to reconcile this to the fact that without him perhaps millions would not be sober. The good that Ebby did lives on long after his death. To me it shows the power of doing good along the way as we live as best as we can. I thought the book was very well written.


    4. Saying "suicidal" in ch. 13 is a logical contradiction with the principle of not taking anyone else's inventory***
