WHAT I LEARNED: 1. This is the sixth pamphlet in the general Al-Anon Newcomer Packet (item # K-10) & is one of the few examples of early “outside literature” being grandfathered into the CAL catalog. It was issued in 1962 & is primarily based on an article by a non-member: the former director of the Charlotte Council on Alcoholism.
2. This pamphlet focuses on the disease & reads like a mini dissertation on its psychological effects. The “bad check” analogy is fantastic!
**BONUS CAL QUESTION: A few years later, a talk from the same author of this pamphlet was also used as the basis for another pamphlet which just happens to be my top seller… What pamphlet is it? (Hint: see item # P-3!)
