Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-12-A comprehensive, clearly written survey of the illness. Each chapter begins with statistics, then methodically answers questions relating to them. Source notes are a report writer's dream-most are 1990 and 1991, and include newspaper articles, government reports, original research, and congressional hearings. A list of helping associations is included. Living with a Parent Who Drinks Too Much (Greenwillow, 1979) by Judith Seixas and Not My Family (Bradbury, 1988) by Maxine B. Rosenberg concentrate on specific techniques to help readers cope with their lives. While Berger's book does some of that, it is primarily an overview of the subject. The up-to-date statistics and sources should influence purchase consideration.-Martha Gordon, South Salem Library, NY
Jeanne Triner
Part of the Changing Family series, Berger's book refers to alcoholism as "the family disease." While beginning with a discussion of alcoholics and including information on the effects of alcohol and the causes of alcoholism, the author's main focus is on the families of alcoholics, including the feelings of shame, guilt, helplessness, and bitterness that family members often feel. Berger also deals frankly with codependency, abuse, dysfunctional families, and the tendency of adult children of alcoholics to either marry alcoholics or become alcoholics themselves. A final section covers prevention, treatment, and recovery. Information is presented in an easy-to-read question-and-answer format, with interesting statistics inserted at the beginning of each chapter. Without crossing into the realm of bibliotherapy, the author sends the message to young people who are living with alcoholics that they are not alone and encourages them to get help for themselves and, if possible, for their families. Source notes, bibliography, and an agency information section are included.
