    1. My 2 star mark may not really be fair This book is mostly comparisons with alcohol and how people all over the world drink it, and facts of alcohol drinking on individuals I think I was actually looking for something less factual advice self help Took me a long time to finish It did have some interesting information.

    2. Would ve given this five stars if it weren t part of that recent glut of books Salt, Mauve, etc that talk about how some random thing changed the world Otherwise a very handy book to have read after your fourth or fifth beer, when the talk turns philosophical trivial.
