Clear Thinking When Drinking: The Handbook for Responsible Alcohol Consumption is a practical, no-nonsense, user-friendly guide to drinking in moderation and avoiding alcohol-related problems.
People in our society are constantly bombarded with conflicting beliefs about alcoholic beverages:
*Alcohol is a poison
*Alcohol is the key to good health
*Alcohol is a drug and ensnares its victims
*Alcohol is a harmless social lubricant
*Alcohol leads to unhappiness and degradation
*Alcohol is essential to the good life
*Alcohol destroys brain cells
*Alcohol prevents Alzheimer’s disease
*One drink is the first step toward alcoholism
*Alcoholics aren’t made but are born
What can people believe? This non-technical but science-based book cuts through the dogma and prejudices to reveal what everyone needs to know about the consumption of alcoholic beverages.
Because of its readability and interesting writing style, this book is an excellent choice to give teenagers. It doesn’t “talk down” to readers and it isn‘t preachy in the slightest. Some of the information it provides, such as the biphasic curve, is very important to every person who chooses to drink yet is virtually unknown to the public.
The author, Roman T. Solohub, has performed a valuable public service in writing this potentially life saving but very affordable handbook.
