Joe Miller, an award-winning journalist and a professor of English at Columbus state university in Georgia, about his highly interesting book "US of AA how the 12 steps hijacked the science of alcoholism". Miller's in-depth investigating reveals the history of how AA became US de facto treatment policy. And how, in spite of that the program doesn't work for an overwhelming majority, the 12 steps movement has suppressed alternatives. In this story we meet Marty Mann the first lady of AA, a brilliant strategist and maybe the first peer consultant at a system and policy level.
