AA Literature

Literature published by A.A. World Services, Inc. is a resource for the recovering alcoholic and for anyone who wants to find out about Alcoholics Anonymous, its history and how it works. General Service Conference-approved literature reflects the group conscience of the Fellowship of A.A. and includes the book Alcoholics Anonymous (affectionately known by members as the Big Book); Daily Reflections, a compilation of spiritual reflections contributed by members; books written by one of A.A.’s co-founders (such as Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions and As Bill Sees It); and a wide variety of pamphlets and booklets that deal with the Three Legacies of Alcoholics Anonymous: Recovery, Unity and Service.

AVAILABLE LITERATURE

“Conference-approved” means the pamphlet or book fills an over-all A.A. need and generally expresses over-all A.A. thinking and experience. This expression of the approval comes from the General Service Conference (United States and Canada and South Africa) and the General Service Board of A.A.

Look for the statement: “This is A.A. General Service Conference –approved Literature” on books, pamphlets and DVD’s. “Conference-approved” does not indicate disapproval of other A.A. pamphlets, such as booklets or pamphlets written by local central or intergroup offices that are not published by A.A. World Services, Inc.

Conference-approval is used with the hope that all members will have the benefit of A.A.’s thinking found in these books, pamphlets and DVD’s.

Service material differs from Conference-approved literature in that it has not come about through Conference Advisory Action. It is produced when there is a need for readily available information on a specific subject. Service material reflects shared A.A. group experience as well as specific and timely information that is subject to change.

We have a wide range of literature and audio-visual material for alcoholics with special needs. For the blind and visually impaired there is recovery literature in Braille and large print, and for the deaf and hard of hearing Alcoholics Anonymous and Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions are available in American Sign Language on DVD.

Literature can be ordered from your intergroup/central office.
