About the Author

William Schaberg graduated from Fairfield University in 1966 with a degree in history. He began his business career in the local family business and ended it 39 years later as the Vice-President of Corporate Development and Communications for the American Reprographics Company. Today, he is the proprietor of Athena Rare Books, a firm specializing in first edition copies of works important to the history of ideas.


Bill Schaberg does a great service to the Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous with his exhaustive examination of archival documents, separating myth from fact. The result is a clearer picture of the beginnings of A.A. and the development of the Big Book, along with a rich and compelling portrait of Bill W. Less myth produces a much better story."
- The Very Rev. Ward B. Ewing, D.D., Trustee and past Chair of the General Service Board of Alcoholics Anonymous, Retired Dean and President of the General Theological Seminary, New York

"Like a good suspense novel, this book captures the day-to-day struggles these few intrepid men encountered over those years"
- Linda Farris Jurtz, Professor Emerita, Eastern Michigan University

"Schaberg's study of Alcoholics Anonymous is a true gift to A.A. and its membership, past, present, and future."
- Kevin Hanlon, co-cretor of the documentary Bill W.
