Speaker Tape #8

As promised, here it is. A copy of Dr. Bob's last major talk in MP3 format. The recording was made at the speaker meeting in Detroit, MI sometime in December 1948. You may have seen a transcription of this talk in the A.A. GSC-approved pamphlet entitled "The Co-founders of Alcoholics Anonymous: Biographical Sketches, Their Last Major Talks." Here is an excerpt from that pamphlet of Dr. Bob's talk:

I couldn't understand what was wrong. I had done all the things that those good people told me to do. I had done them, I thought, very faithfully and sincerely. And I still continued to overindulge. But the one that they hadn't told me was the one thing that Bill did that Sunday - attempt to be helpful to somebody else.
