“ Keith, I received my “70th Anniversary Little Red Book” today and WOW I had no idea this book would be such a collector's item to have. I LOVE AA history and memorabilia and to see the actual signatures inside the front cover of the first founder's who were everyone from Bill and Bob to Dr. Silkworth and Dr. Jung even though they were copies gave me chills. Furthermore to know there are only 4730 printed and I have one of those limited editions that is numbered is awesome. If it were not for these people I would not be sober today and have the freedom and beautiful life I have. This is a MUST for every avid AA Collector!!!!!”
Tell me something Ken so that I have it right. This book was designed and brought to market by you, correct? I'm not exactly sure what it is about this particular book that makes me want to pull it out and look at it a lot. It's just a beautifully done book. I had a cousin that worked as a book binder for many years and he showed me some of the ways folks will cut quality to save a buck. The forwarding & finishing are second to none on this book. The stamped gold lettering looks perfect and simulates real gold. This book was done up with obviously the finest cloth, binding materials, fine paper and outstanding equipment. Course I would expect nothing but the finest from you <G>..

I received the pathway book inscribed to me. Wow! This is a magnificent piece for AA's to cherish. The signatures of all the real “founders.” The two editions, first and second, so unknown to many today. The pathway cover. The limited edition status. You can be sure of several things: (1) I deeply appreciate receiving the book. (2) I sure intend to trumpet the existence of these books—far and wide. (3) I sure intend to show and trumpet them at the conference. Thank you. God Bless,

Thank you! I shall treasure this book both both for its
special jacket and as an ongoing memory of our work together.
[From a 35-year AA'er:]
Thank you so much --- this book is something else! I hope this is the best Christmas for all of you. I will try and call today to thank you again - it is something I will always treasure.
