Published by Heinemann (Learn To Say No series), 2000
A good introduction to the problems of drinking and how to say 'no'. Explanations of drugs in general, the scientific basis of alcohol, something of the history of alcohol abuse, and a chapter about the law, is followed by the effects of drink on behaviour and on the body. A section on why people drink and then several chapters on saying 'no', avoiding difficult situations and talking with someone trusted about problems that may arise, is followed by the usual index, glossary, and useful contacts. Lots of pictures, diagrams and information boxes add to the interest level.
