Alcoholism: The Facts deals with all aspects of the world's number one drug problem. Primarily a book for all those who have alcohol problems and for those who share their lives, it is written in a clear and lively style, and deals with all the social, psychological, and medical aspects of alcohol problems - of which alcoholism is the best-known example. In the decade since the first edition of this book was published there has been an enormous amount of scientific research into what causes some people to suffer from alcohol problems and the best treatments to offer them. Professor Goodwin explains straightforwardly and with minimal technical jargon what the results of this research mean, and how to go about getting help with alcohol problems for yourself, a relative, or friend.
