A Winner!

Every counselor and educator should own this clearly written, easy to read book about the prevalence of alcohol addiction and marketing in America. Covers specific groups as well as population in general. Comprehensive, up to date, superbly outlined and indexed, it hits hard at the problem. Excellent section on treatment. Invaluable also for family members of any age, as well as professionals. Factual, provocative, alarming, educational, helpful -- this book is first rate in every way.

Great Job Vince, Bernie & Gary!!

This is a great, long awaited text! I may be biased, since I helped with some of it for my Graduate work!! This book should be purchased by anyone who is interested in knowing how we as Americans came to have such a problem with Alcohol. It should be purchased & read by all students in social work, counseling, psychology & other social studies fields if they plan to work with addicted clients. It reads relatively easy & has several references to help the lay person understand the terminology used when dealing with those who are addicted & their families.
