ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS: The Story of How Many Thousands of Men and Women Have Recovered from Alcoholism (generally known as The Big Book) is a 1939 basic text, describing how to recover from alcoholism, written by the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Bill W. & Dr. Bob. It is the originator of the seminal "twelve-step method" widely used to attempt to treat many addictions, from alcoholism and heroin addiction to marijuana addiction, as well as overeating, sex addiction, gambling addiction, and family members of alcoholics, with a strong spiritual and social emphasis. It is one of the best-selling books of all time, having sold 30 million copies. In 2011, Time magazine placed the book on its list of the 100 best and most influential books written in English since 1923, the beginning of the magazine.

Robert Holbrook Smith (August 8, 1879-November 16, 1950), also known as "Dr. Bob," was an American physician and surgeon who co-founded Alcoholics Anonymous with Bill Wilson, more commonly known as Bill W. Smith was born in Vermont; after graduation from Dartmouth College in 1902, he worked for three years selling hardware in Boston, Chicago, and Montreal but began drinking heavily. He then returned to school to study medicine. He attained his degree but recovery from alcoholism eluded him until he met Bill Wilson on May 13, 1935. Wilson, an alcoholic who had learned how to stay sober by helping other alcoholics through the Oxford Group in New York, helped Smith stop drinking. Smith then invited Wilson to stay at his home. Smith was called the "Prince of Twelfth Steppers" by Wilson because he helped more than 5000 alcoholics before his death. Smith was able to stay sober from June 10, 1935, until his death in 1950 from colon cancer.
