Descripción

Fifth printing of this now classic. Silver-dollar-sized blemish in lower right corner of front board, no doubt from a drink (water we hope!) Rear corners lightly nudged. Extremely scarce in any edition. Peabody, of the Boston blueblood scions, was an alcoholic who helped pioneer the philosophy that alcoholism was an actual disease, rather than merely a weak constitution manifesting poor behavior. He went on to provide counseling services to many in NYC. It is generally regarded that some of his phrases ("Half-way measures were to no avail"; "Once a drunkard always a drunkard." and even the step program were liberally made use of by Bill Wilson, who went on to found that famous recovery organization whose initials are the first letter of the alphabet, doubled, and which is curiously hyper-proprietary about the mere public appearance of this name, or nickname of their organization. Higher power indeed!!. N° de ref. de la librería 63014
