A Biography of Mrs. Marty Mann: The First Lady of Alcoholics Anonymous
Hazelden Information & Educational Services, May 1, 2001 - Self-Help - 384 pages
Titles under the Hazelden-Pittman Archives Press imprint focus on the history of Alcoholics Anonymous: its early years; biographies of its founders; the work of men and women who have made significant contributions to the fellowship; AA's spiritual underpinning, the Twelve Steps; and the continuing success of AA.She was born into a life of wealth and privilege, sank to the lowest depths of poverty and despair because of her addiction to alcohol, then rose to transform herself and inspire thousands of others, especially women, to seek help for themselves. Considered one of the most effective public health care reformers of the twentieth century, Marty Mann showed that alcoholism is a disease, not a moral failing, and that it is a major public health problem.
