From reviews of the previous edition: '... the best overview on the subject for practitioners who wish to understand and help people with alcohol problems ... a unique perspective ... elegant and succinct prose ... highly readable ... an absolute must to read.' The Lancet 'This text continues to be a must for anyone working in the field of alcohol misuse.' Addiction Biology '... highly readable ... an invaluable resource ... authoritative ... contains a wealth of readily accessible information on drinking problems and is therefore essential reading for all workers in specialist drug and alcohol agencies.' Drug News 'This edition combines the highly readable style of previous editions with a strong evidenced-based approach to diagnosis and treatment of alcohol problems ... the hallmark of the book is the clarity with which it is presented ... it was a delight to review this book. Its concise and readable prose, combined with the high quality of its content, makes The Treatment of Drinking Problems a must have for all those working with people who have drinking problems.' Addiction 'I very much enjoyed the style of writing, its incisiveness, and liked also the introduction setting out what each particular chapter is about, making it a real practical book to have. Indeed ... many of the chapters should become dog-eared from frequent use, certainly the chapter on depression is one of those.' Addiction Biology
