Summary
"The four areas debated are health, industry responsibility, alcoholism treatment, and what can be done about alcohol-related problems. The previously published material taken from a variety of sources has been edited for length and accessibility ... A fine vehicle to help young people evaluate sources of information and hone critical-thinking skills." SLJ
