This unique book and accompanying audio CD draw on letters, journal entries, speeches from Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) conferences, and recorded conversations to tell the personal stories of AA cofounders Dr. Bob and Bill W. The book and CD reveal the cofounders' unique contributions to the creation and development of AA, the Big Book, and the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions. The book explores their lives, starting with their early drinking days, while the audio recordings begin with their first speeches in the 1940s and continue through Bill W.'s last talk given at the Miami International Convention in 1970, just months before he died.

AA historian and archivist Michael Fitzpatrick used his research conducted at Stepping Stones (the former home of Bill W.) and Dr. Bob's home, excerpts from the AA Grapevine, and his own private collection to offer this multimedia retrospective.

Dr. Bob and Bill W. Speak is part of Hazelden's Legacy 12 publishing initiative, which was created to enrich people's recovery with dynamic multimedia works that use rare original-source documents to bring AA and Twelve Step history alive.
