what's new about the 3rd edition?
It's been ten years since we published Beyond Belief (2013); change has happened. We have a new PREFACE, relating our experience of the last decade in the world of recovery. Corrections, hyperlinks and notes and census data has been updated. There are substantial changes inside the book, but some have judged a book by our cover and we listened. As well as the 29,000 eBook and paperback versions out there over the decade we now offer a HARDCOVER version. Some of you, seven years or more into daily readings have asked and now, you got it!
Order from us, or your favorite online or brick and mortar bookseller. Thank you everyone for your continued support, your recommendations to others and your friendship with Rebellion Dogs Publishing.

From 1968 to the 2022 (soon to be released) AA Membership Survey in the USA we check our demographics for outreach to healthcare professionals and the general public. We also use the survey to take inventory of how we are doing: who is getting the help they need; who's being left behind. Looking at them collectively we can measure trends.
The Great Britain 2020 Membership Survey reveals two new talking points: How are AA members doing with the proliferation of Zoom (and other online) AA meetings? What do AA's really believe? Members answer if they believe in a higher power and how religious or secular they are.
This event is part of a series from the Growing in Understanding group.

this is "some of" the history of atheists and agnostics in AA. Secular AA has "widened AA's gateway" according to founders and "isn't REAL AA" according to fundamentalists. In this meeting we will take a historical look at gatherings: secular AA meetings, conferences and literature in AA.
(EDT, UTC-04) (EDT, UTC-04)
updated and revised history of secular AA: meetings and other gathering, the impact of Zoom, barriers and bridges, Secular AA: is it a different program or a different language?
