Evan Rail's latest long essay on beer and it's effects is a superb follow up to 'Why Beer Matters'. Written with Evan's typically pithy prose and informed by a wealth of references from around the world, 'In Praise of Hangovers' takes a slightly irreverent, sideways look at the after effects of indulging in too much booze. Littered with scenes that any drinker will instantly recognise, this is a wonderful read and well worth the half hour or so it takes to get through it. Be warned though, if you are reading it whilst on the train/bus or in a cafe, be prepared to giggle in public.
