"Science writer Tony Edwards has gathered the evidence about the health effects of alcohol from medical journals and processed it in a very understandable way, and with a great sense of humor. Of course the book will be labelled as controversial, but its value is it could lead to a better understanding of all the complex issues involved. Here you have the data you need to help you make your own decision. Yes, drink kills, but it can also have a positive effect on our physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing."

"Recommended reading for doctors and a great majority of their patients. In the last 20 years there has been a tsunami of good quality research, most of which has received scant recognition as it offended one or other pressure groups. Although full of facts, Tony Edwards' book deals in an understandable way with the research and in my view is accurately presented. Women are rightly concerned about breast cancer, but the book includes reports, seldom ever publicised, that the verdict is not as unanimous as is supposed."

"Very impressive work, indeed. I will share its message with colleagues. "

"Exceptionally well-written book, informative yet very entertaining.
More important, it provides very well-balanced conclusions to the wine/alcohol/health issues."
