Bill W. and Dr. Bob
Our 2012 Tour of Bill W. & Dr. Bob across Minnesota was an incredible experience!
A universal human story of the dangers of isolation and the healing power of fellowship, Bill W. & Dr. Bob is told with passion, humor and authenticity.
In 1929, famous New York stockbroker Bill Wilson crashes with the stock market and becomes a hopeless drunk. Dr. Bob Smith, a surgeon from Ohio, has also been an alcoholic for 30 years, often going into the operating room with a hangover. Through an astonishing series of events, Bill W. and Dr. Bob meet and form a relationship, helping to keep each other sober.
Written by Samuel Shem and Janet Surrey, this is the amazing and often amusing account of the two men who pioneered Alcoholics Anonymous, as well as the story of their wives, who founded Al Anon.
