HIDDEN OVER 70 YEARS, THE ORIGINAL WORKING MANUSCRIPT OF "ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS" (the "Big Book") IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE *

AA's Big Book was deemed #2 on the Library of Congress's "Books That Shaped America" list. And its Original Working Manuscript is considered the most priceless non-fiction manuscript in existence. The Big Book is the most sought after book in the world, second only to the Bible, and to us has been more helpful in our lives and those we work with than any other book.

When the present owner purchased it from Sotheby's in 2007, top world experts agreed that, although priceless in nature, in 10 years it should be worth $10,000,000 or more.

The present owner wanted to get it out to the world. So "The Book That Started It All" was published and made available thanks to Hazelden Publishing. The present owner also feels he did what he was to do with it and now believes it is time that the next AA history lover who has the means to purchase this most precious manuscript in existence should now experience owning it. Asking price: $8,000,000. Also being offered with the sale is a second edition Big Book signed by Bill Wilson and four LP albums that originally sold with the Manuscript at Sotheby's auction.

SERIOUS inquires with the means to purchase only. Thank you. Please contact Exclusive Sales Agent: eddieg07@rocketmail.com and leave your contact information and where you found this post.

*Please note that silkworth.net is not affiliated with the sale of the above - rather it is posted here for anyone who may be interested in the above extremely very rare opportunity. To receive any further details, please contact the exclusive sales agent above.

Yours in service,
Warmest regards,
Jim M.

new.jpg  I have been forced to move silkworth.net, once again, to a new server from In2net.com in which I paid $390.00 for one year on March 5th, 2014. The cost to Migrate silkworth.net to the new server at DevHost.com cost $180.00 and completed March 25th, 2014. The new cost to host silkworth.net is $552.00 per year. The remainder of the $390.00 paid on March 5th, 2014 to In2net.com was applied to the new yearly cost to host silkworth.net for One year on DevHost.com - prorated. March 25th is the new billing date and is not due again till March 25th, 2015.
     The domain name silkworth.net has also been updated and an amount paid of $109.50 to Doteasy.com assuring silkworth.net will continue to be online thru December, 2020 at which time it will be renewed again.
     Total amount paid this year—March 25th, 2014 to March 25th, 2015—$841.50.

     Click here to see how you can help in support of silkworth.net. If you should decide to make a donation in support of silkworth.net, you must be an A.A. member.

     I extend my gratitude to all of you for your support of silkworth.net and hope the site will continue to help you in your quest for knowledge of Alcoholics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous history and related information.
     There are Thousands of pages, MP3 files, AVI files, zipped files, word docs, PDF files and entire books to read online — to help you become more informed by reading, studying, learning and perhaps research you may be doing.
     If you have any additional Alcoholics Anonymous historical and related information to add to silkworth.net, please do send it in for inclusion on the site. There can NEVER be enough AA History on silkworth.net. Please help make silkworth.net the largest resource for Alcoholics Anonymous History on the World Wide Web. Credit will be given where credit is due.

    *Alcoholics Anonymous history is, pretty much, kept under lock and key at Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc. in New York which many A.A. members will never have the privilege of viewing, reading, studying from or perhaps doing research. Only a fraction of A.A. members will ever take the journey to New York to view A.A. history that A.A.W.S., Inc. has in its possession. If A.A.W.S, Inc. in New York would put up its own Alcoholics Anonymous history web site, then there would be no need for a site such as silkworth.net.
    All A.A. history information on silkworth.net will never be taken out of context - rather posted exactly as it was intended for the visitors to research, read, learn and study from by the many thousands of visitors per month to silkworth.net. All information is provided for free - as it should be.

Yours in service,
Warmest regards,
Jim M.

Do we want more of what brought us to AA ...

    We were having trouble with personal relationships, we couldn't control our emotional natures, we were a prey to misery and depression, we couldn't make a living, we had a feeling of uselessness, we were full of fear, we were unhappy, we couldn't seem to be of real help to other people—was not a basic solution of these bedevilments more important ... ?

2nd, 3rd, and 4th edition Big Book page 52 

... or do we want what practicing the principles of AA promises?

    If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through.
    We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.
    We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it.
    We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace.
    No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others.
    That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear.
    We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows.
    Self-seeking will slip away.
    Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change.
    Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us.
    We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us.
    We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.

    Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.

"Lord, make me a channel of thy peace—that where there is hatred, I may bring love—that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness—that where there is discord, I may bring harmony—that where there is error, I may bring truth—that where there is doubt, I may bring faith—that where there is despair, I may bring hope—that where there are shadows, I may bring light—that where there is sadness, I may bring joy. Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted—to understand, than to be understood—to love, than to be loved. For it is by self-forgetting that one finds. It is by forgiving that one is forgiven. It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life. Amen."
-Saint Francis of Assisi
