The Little Red Book for Women

Karen Casey, Annotations by Hazelden Publishing & Educational Services $13.95 (149p) ISBN 978-1-59285-082-2
Since 1946, The Little Red Book has served as a guidepost for participants in Alcoholics Anonymous. Revising that book's often male-directed advice, this new edition is written specifically for women going through the recovery process. Descriptions of the famous 12 steps make up the bulk of the book, and while the steps themselves are not rewritten for this publication, the analysis and discussion surrounding each step is geared toward women. Designed to be studied repeatedly, the pocket-sized guide is always reassuring and brims with advice on overcoming addiction. Notes in the margins speak to women readers, giving additional guidance on seeking female sponsors, relieving guilt, getting over the need to be perfect, dealing with low self-esteem, engaging in relaxing activities (like exercise and meditation) and maintaining a healthy balance between what others need and personal needs. A Q&A section and suggestions for further reading (including Alcoholics Anonymous, Fourth Edition; and Stools and Bottles) round out this encouraging book.
