An excerpt from the back of the book:
Since 1938, the greatest part of my A.A. life has been spent in
helping to create, design, manage, and insure the solvency
and effectiveness of A.A.'s world services -- the office of
which has enabled our Fellowship to function all over the
globe, and as a unified whole.
It is no exaggeration to say that, under their trustees, these
all important services have accounted for much of our
present size and over-all effectiveness.
The A.A. General Service Office is by far the largest single
carrier of the A.A. message. It has well related A.A. to the
troubled world in which we live. It has fostered the spread of
our Fellowship everywhere. A.A. World Services, Inc., stands
ready to serve the special needs of any group orisolated
individual, no matter the distance or language. Its many
years of accumulated experience are available to us all.
The members of our trusteeship -- the General Service Board
of A.A. -- will, in the future, be our primary leaders in all of
our world affairs. This high responsibility has long since
been delegated to them; they are the successors in world
service to Dr. Bob and to me, and they are directly
accountable to A.A. as a whole.
This is the legacy of world-service responsibility that we
vanishing oldtimers are leaving to you, the A.A.'s of today
and tomorrow. We know that you will guard, support, and
cherish this world legacy as the greatest collective
responsibility that A.A.has or ever can have.
Yours in trust, and in affection,
Bill W. died on January 24, 1971."
