I took the book off the shelf in 2009 and have been using it as part of daily meditations ever since. The idea is good: a quote from the basic AA texts followed by a reflection by an AA member, but the selections could be better. Still, it's worth using, if for no other reason than to be reminded everyday of the truths contained in the quote.
I love this book! I read it everyday. Everyday, every reflection I read I can relate it to what's going on with me in my life. It's a book of God shots for me. It's always something I either needed to read or wanted to read from this book of reflections. Not to mention it's a book that I can take with me for the rest of my life.

A day to day reflection from the first 164 pages of the Big Book along guidelines of the twelve steps and the twelve traditions.

I suppose this will be one of the few exceptions that stays on my currently reading shelf. I use this book daily and often catch myself going to the meditation when my brain is on over drive. It allows me to force myself to focus a little better, and for that I'm grateful.

So one New Year's Eve I was sulking at home and a girl called me, desperate, because she had just realized that her Daily Reflections was on the LAST PAGE and she hadn't bought a new one. What should she do? I felt like a genius (actually it's AS a genius) when I told her to , um, turn it over. Read this one a few times.
one little reflection a day, all year. really a handy tool.

I am always trying new morning meditation books. Of all the 12 step based ones I have read, this is really NOT my favorite. Its great, but I prefer something with a little more depth. This seemed very cookie cutter AA.
A reading for each day of the year & each month corresponds to each step, for example january is all about step 1. A good book to keep my attention on growth & spirituality. A great way to start the day.
I may use it more than once a day. If inspiation is required, just flick it open and read the page. Great Read. I never finish it as it is used every day of the year and back to beginning again.
This is a very nice little book of daily meditations. It's written mainly for recovering alcoholics, but most of the content has much wider application for everyone's everyday life.
This is a great book for me because each day's reading is short and concise. I can never say I don't have time to read it today. It is also a great source for discussion topics.
I only give it a 3 star but even though I still have a copy next to my bed in all honesty I seldom open it up anymore.
Daily devotional/meditation readings for those in recovery from alcoholism.
Insight into the human condition in a very real way. A daily read.

“To make amends can be viewed two ways: first, that of repairing damage, for if I have damaged my neighbor’s fence, I “make a mend,” and that is a direct amend; the second way is by modifying my behavior, for if my actions have harmed someone, I make a daily effort to cause no further harm. I “mend my ways,” and that is an indirect amend. Which is the best approach? The only right approach, provided that I am causing no further harm in so doing, is to do both. If harm is done, then I simply “mend my ways.” To take action in this manner assures me of making honest amends.” 1 likes
