    Most read for those in recovery!

    As a person afflicted with alcoholism in recovery this book was very enlightening. Detailing how alcohol effects the body and mind at the cellular level. How the disease is hereditary, not causeed by a weakness of character

    Very informative

    Very insightful account about the physiological, not psychological causes of alcoholism. Although 30 years old, "Under the Influence" is a very informative read. It emphasizes that alcoholism is a disease, not a personality flaw. I highly recommend it to anyone who desires enlightenment in this disease. John B.
