"An account of the science behind drinking alcohol and its effects on human health, putting the problems into perspective by looking at the global health and accident statistics relating to alcohol drinking."--Times Higher Education Supplement
"This is a marvelous book, and its use should not be limited to undergraduates. Anyone, including physicians, medical students, nurses and substance abuse counselors, would find it quite useful. It is an easy to read and easy to understand summary of the history of alcohol in society and its effects on the human body, and should be read by anyone seeking to further their knowledge on this subject. The interactive DVD is quite extraordinary, and adds to the book's overall usefulness."--Doody's Health Sciences Review, a 5-star review!
