4.0 out of 5 stars Alcohol Nation 20 Oct 2011
This is a well written, easy to read and pretty up to date exploration of the drug alcohol. I contains the basic facts and many academic references of new research and recent updates of our knowledge of this the most abused drug of choice in the UK. It would be useful for anyone in the caring professions and for parents and carers of children to read. The references are mainly English/UK, canada and South Africa which reflects on the authors experience. There is one glaring mistake in the facts in relation to the new way of categorising drugs (The Nutt scale) devised by Professor Nutt and his colleagues. The author suggest that alcohol is top of that list when in fact it is fifth out of the 20 most commonly misused drugs. The book also lacks any insight into the common myths about alcohol which are perpetuated constantly in the media and passed on from peers to peer and parents to children. These myths drive a lot of the dangerous use and misuse of alcohol in our nation. All in all a very useful book to inform the public about what is without a doubt the drug of choice that is causing our adults and children serious health risks.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS MAN KNOWS HIS STUFF 17 July 2012
Author of Remotely Controlled on the perils of television, this man knows his stuff, especially the vile scenes around any british town centre on a Friday or Saturday night. He explains the problem and the bleak outlook which will prevail as successive governments have failed to grasp the nettle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rambling, boring, badly written . . . 16 Aug 2011
By Peter S. Bishop - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Mr Sigman seems to be very naive. Please tell us something we DON'T know - and perhaps have an editor translate the UK slang. Readers would be better informed by attending a few AA meetings.
