Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most murders happen on Saturday nights because that's when most people have been drinking. Among sons of alcoholics, 10 out of 55 are receiving treatment for alcoholism by age 30. Alexander the Great was reported to be under the influence of alcohol when he burned the royal palace at Persepolis in 330 BC.

This completely updated and revised new edition of Dr. Goodwin's successful Alcoholism: The Facts deals with all aspects of the world's number one drug problem. Written for those with alcohol problems and those who share their lives, the book focuses not only on the clinical aspects of alcoholism, but covers also social and psychological problems experienced by alcoholics and their relatives and friends. Avoiding all technical jargon, Dr. Goodwin informs readers about known and unknown facts of alcoholism, what the latest research results mean, and how to get help for themselves, a relative, or a friend. There is information on alcoholic beverages, alcohol in the body, risk factors, heredity, psychosocial theories, specific treatments, Alcoholics Anonymous, and much more.

The book corrects many of the misconceptions about alcoholism. While newspapers are full of stories about an increase of alcoholism among teenagers and women, this is impossible to prove, since nobody know how many were alcoholic in the past. While alcohol is widely believed to cause brain damage, this has also not been proven.

Based on hard scientific data, written in a clear style, Alcoholism: The Facts is the ideal resource for everyone concerned about this illness.

Synopsis:

This updated and expanded new edition of a classic text on the world's number one drug problem is written in a clear and lively style by a world authority on alcoholism. The book is aimed at those who have alcohol problems and the people who share their lives. Throughout it examines the social, psychological, and medical aspects of alcohol problems.
