This Tuesday, July 24, 2007 picture shows the book "Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How More Than One Hundred Men Have Recovered From Alcoholism" on the desk of Bill Wilson's studio, "Wits End," at Bill and Lois Wilson's home in Bedford Hills, N.Y. Bill Wilson was co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous and Lois was co-founder of Al-Anon Family Groups. The book, also known as the "Big Book" was written at that desk. A working manuscript of the original book is to be published Friday, Oct. 1, 2010 for the first time. Called "The Book that Started it All," the document is filled with crossouts, inserts and notes, presumably based on feedback sought from about 400 hand-picked outsiders who included doctors and psychiatrists. less
