New Books at Intergroup

We now have Grapevine’s newest book:

Our Twelve Traditions

In this collection of stories from AA Grapevine, members write about their experiences with the core principles contained in AA’s Twelve Traditions. Born of the trial-and-error experience of the Fellowship’s earliest years, the Twelve Traditions provide the spiritual and practical underpinning for AA’s ongoing adventure of living and working together. Seen through the eyes of individual members, the stories in this book offer groups, as well as members, workable solutions to difficult problems. $12.25


And since we have received many requests, Drop the Rock:

Drop the Rock Second Edition

Resentment. Fear. Self-Pity. Intolerance. Anger. As Bill P. explains, these are the “rocks” that can sink recovery- or at the least, block further progress. Based on the principles behind Steps Six and Seven, Drop the Rock combines personal stories, practical advice, and powerful insights to help readers move forward in recovery. The second edition features additional stories and a reference section. $9.25

How AA Members Use the Program
To Improve Relationships

When we were drinking, many of us had, as the Step Four chapter in the AA book Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions puts it, “a total inability to form a true partnership with another human being.”
Forming True Partnerships is a collection of Grapevine stories that show the many ways members use the Twelve Steps, sponsorship, and the tools of the program to improve and repair relationships, old and new.

With candid and colorful stories on families, friendships, marriage, divorce, dating, romance, coworkers, sponsorship and pets, Forming True Partnerships covers a wide range of experience from sober alcoholics on how we form true partnerships with others.

For yourself, or someone you know, each page in this book, offers an inspiring passage of experience, strength and hope to bring into your life.
