A.A. World Services tells us of an error in recently-printed English-language editions of the book Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions. The Spanish- and French-language editions do not have this error.
According to them, “Due to a typographical error, the text of the Long Form of Tradition Eight was inadvertently repeated in the Long Form of Tradition Nine (page 177) in this edition. The accurate full text of Tradition Nine (Long Form) appears on page 178.”
