An interesting commentary about the pluses in drinking red wine.

"More than 1.5 million Americans will have a heart attack this year; 500,000 of them will die. Now you can learn the pleasurable no-deprivation secrets that can help you avoid being a coronary statistic and live longer in the process."

The author, Lewis Perdue, has written 13 books and has worked as an investigative reporter for more than 20 years.

This is a good book all about how alcohol, specifically wine -- and most specifically red wine -- is okay in moderation and even good for you. The author cites lots of medical studies to back up this idea. He gets down on the anti-alcohol establishment quite a bit, even accusing the (American) government of being unjustifiably anti-alcohol. Easy reading, easy to understand for those interested in this type of thing. There are a few "Mediterranean" food recipes at the end of the book that don't include alcohol.
