The Natural History of Alcoholism Revisited is a revised and updated version of [what] was, and still is, regarded as a classic and certainly broke new ground during the 1980s...The new text provides an update based on developments over the past 15 years; and its importance again derives from the fact that almost all the alcohol abusers identified in the first version have been followed up for an additional 15 years to make 50 years in all. It goes without saying that 50-year follow-up studies are few and far between...Vaillant's 50-year follow-up now stands as a milestone within the addiction literature...It is required reading...The data are beautifully presented and described and the conclusions eminently reasonable.
