Dust jacket notes: "In 1935, two drunks met and talked in the library of a home in Akron, Ohio, and from that single event was to grow a program of recovery for more than a million once-hopeless alcoholics. How did the seed that became Alcoholics Anonymous take root and develop? The articles in this book tell much of that story. In the Grapevine, AA's international journal, co-founder Bill W. recorded--and reflected on--AA's history as it happened. A prolific writer, Bill authored more than 150 Grapevine articles, from 1944 to the late 1960's and virtually all of them appear here, published for the first time in one volume. A man of extraordinary energy and action, Bill committed his thoughts to paper with great facility. Yet the lessons of which he writes were born of a long and arduous process of trial and error, and in the events and insights he chronicled from AA's pioneer years, sober alcoholics can find their own struggles and those of their groups today. Covering a multitude of topics, from the basic principles of AA's Steps and Traditions to a discussion of the personal search of many AA members for 'emotional sobriety,' Bill's words hold meaning for AA members of any age. Writing ten years after his first visit to European AA with his wife Lois in 1950, Bill had this to say: 'As we journeyed from land to land, we had the same magnificent adventure in kinship over and over...Everywhere, everywhere, it was the same . . . the communication of heart to heart in wonder, in joy, and in everlasting gratitude. Lois and I knew then that AA could circle the globe--and it has.' It is the belief of the Grapevine editors that the fundamental AA experience expressed here will illuminate every facet of AA life--a way of life that has, over the years, helped one suffering alcoholic to communicate with another in 'the language of the heart.'"

Book Description Hardcover. Condition: new. Hardcover. From Bill W., co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, a collection of inspiring and illuminating articles written for Grapevine magazineBill W. was AA Grapevines most prolific contributor, having written more than 150 articles, from his first in June 1944 to his last in December 1970. An enthusiastic advocate, he also served for many years as a consulting editor of Grapevine, which started as an eight-page local newsletter and became the principal journal of the Fellowship.In more than 150 articles, written over a span of twenty-six years, Bill Wilson documented the painstaking process of trial and error that resulted in AA's spiritual principles of recovery, unity, and service, articulating along the way his vision of what the Fellowship could become.In The Language of the Heart: Bill W.s Grapevine Writings, readers will find Bills initial inspirations for what became the Twelve Traditions, his battles with chronic depression and spiritual pride, memories of an all-night drinking spree, and a vivid description of how he came to organize the Twelve Steps (there were six in the first draft).For anyone in recovery from alcoholism or addiction, this uplifting and poignant collection provides a view into the early days of Alcoholics Anonymous as well as deep insights on emotional sobriety and personal struggle. Ultimately, The Language of the Heart documents a heartfelt journey that offers foundational knowledge and hope. Language of the Heart contains all of AA cofounder Bill W.'s Grapevine, including a vivid description of how he came to organize the Steps.
