This was a very interesting in depth look at fraternities across America and the increase of binge drinking on campus. It was pretty interesting until about 3/4 of the way and I felt like I had had enough of the statistics and the stories. It was amazing that it seemed to be only one fraternity that was having the alcohol problems for the most part. As I never got the chance to go to college (I did take night courses), I pretty much requested it just to check it out. A very informative book that you could tell the author did a lot of research for and interesting for the most part. Thanks to Perseus Books and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
