Editorial Reviews:

Attempting to deconstruct America's joyless obsession with sobriety, The Modern Drunkard offers today's befuddled drinkers a comprehensive and instructive manual on how to drink-and how to do it well. Through articles, anecdotes, cartoons, and illustrations, Frank Kelly Rich campaigns to revive the lost art of tippling and taps a deep vein of boozy lore and legend through the ages, uncovering etiquette and expertise from some of history's greatest guzzlers.

Summary: It's funny but you will get the joke well before you finish
Comment: Very funny, but goes on a bit too long, especially given the fact that the theme is rather narrow. Worth a read if you like ironic and sarcastic humor, but you may find about 2/3rds of the way through that you get the joke and decide to move on. Recommended with reservations.

Summary: Counter Oprah's Beach Club Book...
Comment: I read this while on vacation at the beach. Please ensure that your cooler is fully stocked prior to cracking the spine. What a great find! This book is too funny for me to do it justice.

Summary: Funny, Entertaining, Easy Read
Comment: I'm far from the level of alcoholic that Rich talks about, but alcohol is incorporated into my lifestyle, and I really enjoyed this book. The chapters are fairly short with short paragraphs, and the book altogether moves rather quickly and stays entertaining. As someone who usually gets bored by the end of a book, this was not a problem for me. I would recommend this to anyone who drinks even casually as a fun read.

Summary: Excellent all around
Comment: This book is so good its scary. Its not just about drinking (though it is primarily about drinking) it's about a true "seize the day" mentality and damn the torpedoes! It's a "Dangerous Book for Boys" that may actually be dangerous.
Packed with useful tidbits about bar etiquette and what it means to be a drinker, as well as a clear love of the history of libations and those who choose to partake of them.
And joy to read over and over and share with friends.

Summary: Recycled Material
Comment: This is an excellent book but I was a little disappointed to see that it was mostly recycled material. I am a subscriber to the Modern Drunkard magazine and it seems this paperback is a collection of their most amusing articles and such.

Nevertheless, it's absolutely worth purchasing, especially for those of you whom are not aware of the magazine's existance. It is laugh-out-loud funny, informative (believe-it-or-not) and encouraging for those of us who continue to lead a shameless life of debauchery.
