    If you thought the AA handbook was funny, you'll think this is HILARIOUS!

    After following this magazine around for a while, I picked myself up off the floor one morning to see that they had published a book! Now everything one needs to drink like a pro is in one handy volume and you won't have to fumble through old issues to find that bit on 18th century inebriation devices. Yes! We should all go have a scotch to celebrate this new book.

    What today's stuck up society needs


    It's odd how stone cold sobering a book about drinking can be..but Mr. Kelly has managed to do just that. He turns the mirror of guilt and stupidity back onto those of our society who claim that alcohol is the reason for so many of societies problems and shows us the light as to why mankind chose booze to get through the work day thousands of years ago. Whether it be a warm beer in the Egyptian desert after slaving away and carrying blocks uphill making a pyramid or putting up with that annoying co-worker all day who just wont shut up about her newest breakup drama....booze has been helping us civilized folk get through the day since the beginning of time.

    Read on....you'll laugh, you'll cry....and you will most likely want to do it with a scotch in your hand.
