It's a great way to kill a couple of hours and walk away with knowledge.
Instead of killing a couple hours and all you walk away with is that damn catchy "Hide your kids, hide your wife" song.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

I'm pretty sure he's a moderately prolific writer.  But the only book, of his, that I have any personal experience with was "Monkeyluv"; which is just a collection of his older published works.  So the quality was kind of mixed, from one piece to another, and a few seemed rather dated

I've watched more of those TED talk videos than I'd like to admit. :wink:
Though.. I haven't watched as many of them as I'd like to have seen! :tongue2:


They are a contender for the best, most intelligent media readily available on the internet. :thumbup:
