Simon  Borowiak -


"A miracle of humour, research and wisdom." Der Spiegel

What is it like from within you when you are blind drunk? How does detox work? Am I an alcoholic? Am I going to come a cropper? And if I do, will I end up in the gutter?

Booze is a book for everyone who has ever had a drink – and for everyone who has ever had one drink too many. And for everyone who has nothing but trouble as a result. In short: Simon Borowiak has revised the cult book for gourmet drinkers, heavy drinkers, doctors, therapists, wine growers, relatives, the under-aged, drinks suppliers and brain researchers.

"Let me make myself clear: everyone has a perfect right to get into a state of ecstasy, rapture and swoon. But they ought to know about the possible side-effects." Simon Borowiak

"As amusing as it is shocking."
