Finally a book that sets the record straight and challenges the media hype about the evils of alcohol. The Chafetzs clearly and persuasively show that responsible, moderate drinking can actually be good for you! Here's what to drink, when and how to drink it, the truth about mixing different kinds of drinks, and how to lessen your chances of becoming intoxicated. It is common-sense guidance that assures you that, by and large, moderate drinkers actually live longer that abstainers.

Reviews

"I have known Morris Chafetz since we were on the President's Commission Against Drunk Driving together. He continues to be dedicated to educating the public about the myths and realities of alcohol. Whether or not you drink you should know the facts of alcohol use and abuse. This book provides helpful information so you can make intelligent and educated decisions about your own drinking habits."--Candy Lightner "Market Watch " "This readable and scientifically sound book deals with one of the better kept secrets of modern life, that a drink or two a day is on balance good for you."--Nick Sholley "Market Watch " "The Chafetzes remind us that, by and large, humankind and alcohol beverages have peacefully co-existed for thousands of years. In this increasingly stern age, when we far too quickly discard those things that add to the enjoyment and richness of life, this book gives us ample reason to hold close the time-honored tradition of a drink or two among friends."--David Brinkley "Market Watch " "The virtue in this book, an easy single-sit read, is in bringing the full range of questioons regarding alcohol to the floor, from those on the time-tested truisms (drinking milk before alcohol) to more serious questions (alcoholism and genetics) to far-reaching international questions (alcohol and ethnicity)."--Nick Sholley The virtue in this book, an easy single-sit read, is in bringing the full range of questioons regarding alcohol to the floor, from those on the time-tested truisms (drinking milk before alcohol) to more serious questions (alcoholism and genetics) to far-reaching international questions (alcohol and ethnicity).--Nick Sholley, ALL ABOUT BEER This readable and scientifically sound book deals with one of the better kept secrets of modern life, that a drink or two a day is on balance good for you.--Nick Sholley, ALL ABOUT BEER "Market Watch " The Chafetzes remind us that, by and large, humankind and alcohol beverages have peacefully co-existed for thousands of years.
