The New View of Alcoholism
"This is a remarkably good book on problem drinking. It briefly but comprehensively covers the most important issues in this complex area and does so in a courageous, hard-headed, open-minded, and yet highly personal manner. It honestly advocates alternative and nontraditional approaches to alcoholism treatment and, especially, exposes the problems of Alcoholics Anonymous and the other traditional approaches. But it is factual and fair, and makes more points on both sides of controversial issues than any other book that I have examined on this important subject.
"This book, moreover, is both theoretical and highly practical. Its wealth of historical details on problem drinking and the organizations that try to deal with alcoholics is profound. But it also includes a great deal of material on psychotherapy and self-help that can be immensely useful to addicts...Vince's book is one of the best. Read it and see for yourself." ~Dr. Albert Ellis, President, Institute for Rational-Emotive Therapy
