KIRKUS REVIEW

Designed specifically as an aid to Protestant ministers in their pastoral work, this handbook should be very useful to all those concerned with cases of alcoholism who wish to be of help. It outlines the extent and nature of the problem and has very specific advice to offer as to how to deal with alcoholics and how not to handle that problem. It deals with the contribution of medicine, psycho-therapy and religion to the solution and gives full credit to Alcoholics Anonymous for its philosophy and technique. Free from sentimental moralizing, this is a sane and constructive approach to the problem.
