Gresham’s Law and Alcoholics Anonymous
This 26-page booklet tells of the three ways the Twelve Step Program can be practiced: (1) The strong, original way – proved powerfully and reliably effective over seventy-two years. (2) A medium way – not so strong, not so safe, not so sure, not so good, but still effective. And (3) a weak way, which turns out to be really no way at all but literally a heresy, a false teaching, a twisting and corruption of what the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous clearly stated the Program to be.

Three Ways to be Anonymous
This 19-page booklet spells out the three ways the tradition of anonymity can be practiced: (1) the anonymity of inferiority, (2) the anonymity of mediocrity, and (3) the anonymity of excellence. A member of any Twelve Step Fellowship owes it to himself to be aware of how and why he is being anonymous and the right way to practice this tradition.

Invitation to a Great Experiment
Thomas E. Powers (AAA co-founder)
“This is not a stuffy academic discourse on spiritual life. It is a powerfully written hand-book on how to find God, by a man who did so, to his own vast surprise. For those who are already tentatively or securely committed to a religious faith, this book offers a guide toward deeper understanding of the spiritual life. For those who do not believe in God, but who are troubled by what G.K. Chesterton called ‘the first wild doubts of doubt’, it is a compelling invitation to a great experiment.” — Louis Cassels, United Press International

The Practice of the Presence of God
This is not just a devotional classic. It is one of the greatest how-to manuals ever written on the subject of establishing conscious contact with God. The man who wrote it, Brother Lawrence, lived three hundred years ago. He was a monk. He was also a depressive, and he suffered from obsessive fear and worry. He found a way out of life trouble. His story is in the pattern of millions of modern recovery stories in the 12 Step Fellowships. And the method he developed may be the single most useful way for a recovering addict to connect with God and with the 11th Step.
