"I found this book disturbing. The author defines alcoholism most narrowly: basically one must be completely out of control and not functioning on any level to qualify. This book will provide refuge for the functioning alcoholic who is looking for a source to support his denial. The author takes "problem drinking" very lightly, suggesting that it can and does cure itself at the drinker's will. Much of this book contradicts everything I have read or heard from all other sources (and certainly my own experience with a "problem drinker.") The author also seems somewhat hostile to AA, a bias he should have disclosed in the preface. It is hard to believe that this book represents "the facts," any more than it represents the author's perspective. Readers should not assume that the author's MD makes him anything more than a human with an opinion; and in this case, one that is not broadly accepted."
"I think this aurhor has a style of a 10 year old as he said ,she said all the way through the book ,to many saidisms .the story was ok but a writer who is using a perverse ,gross theme to try to keep the readers attention is a one star rating in my book."
