Seven Weeks to Sobriety

Seven Weeks to Sobriety, by Joan Mathews Larson, PhD
ISBN 0-449-90896-8

Reviewed by Carol I.

The book has a ridiculous title "Seven Weeks to Sobriety" (the original title was "Alcoholism-The Biochemical Connection"). Larson wrote the book after her alcoholic son committed suicide.

It's one of the best books around, I think, on fighting alcoholism through nutrition. I learned the most from her about why alcoholics react differently to alcohol, and the language is accessible without being simplistic.
