The Language of the Heart

Bill W. was the Grapevine's most prolific contributor, writing more than 150 articles, from his first in June 1944 to his last in December 1970.

Here in one volume are all of Bill's Grapevine articles, including his first thoughts about the Traditions, his battles with chronic depression and spiritual pride, memories of an all-night drinking spree with Ebby, and a vivid description of how he came to organize the Steps (there were six in the first draft).
