Standard dictionaries are troublesome for many. You often find yourself seeking definitions for the words used to define the word you were orginally looking for ! - This could go on forever ? In addition the seeming hieroglyphics of pronunciation guides can often be of little help to many. Also some words in the writings of recovery related materials do not follow the more standard definitions for the words. For example: the AA beam is not something related to scales, nor is it a steel or wooden support structure. There are more similar examples throughout.
An easy, simple to read, simple to search dictionary !

This book will serve you through·out recovery !
"The Little Big Book Dictionary is a must for any recovering alcoholic's library. When a sponsee asks, "What is belladonna?" I can do more than shrug and say, "who knows?" Many of the words lost in antiquity come to life with this neat little book. I'm passing it on to my sponsees and recommend it to all!" Bill S./GA
