The abuse of alcohol and alcoholism are among the most corrosive and devastating features of modern societies. The incidence of broken lives and shattered families caused directly by alcohol addiction is now widely recognised. However, as the widespread nature of alcoholism is acknowledged, so too are the significant advances in its treatment.

'Under the Weather' sets out all the basic facts on alcoholism and alcohol abuse in an accessible yet comprehensive manner. It combines a popular approach with one that is scientifically and medically reliable. It points the way to management of individual cases and family and friends concerned about the effect of abnormal drinking will also find it an invaluable source of information and support.

Above all it offers hope and encouragement by emphasising the high recovery rates for those who are prepared to assume responsibility for their own recovery and co-operate with properly mounted and comprehensive treatment programmes.

'A very practical and forthright book.' Professor Anthony Clare

'Most valuable for every person touched by the problem of alcoholism.' Neil M., AA Member

'Of the many books written in recent years about alcoholism and problem drinkers this one is outstanding.' Dr Max Glatt
