Commonly referred to as “The Big Book” this basic text of the worldwide Fellowship that bears its name is now available on DVD to the Deaf community, the Hard-of-Hearing community and the hearing community as well.

We applaud this effort by A.A. in continuing to open its arms to all affected by alcoholism.
