Book Review - 'Drinking Problem?'

Whatever the estimated number of U.S. alcoholics now is--6,000,000 or 20,000,-000--we know that many drinkers are ill informed and worried. The title of John E, Keller's new book (published by Fortress Press) should appeal to a large number of such people; so it is perfect for AAs to give to the many who are not yet ready or willing to consider the Fellowship. It should be read by everyone who drinks alcoholic beverages of any kind at any time. It puts clearly and concisely all that needs to be known by the average person about alcoholism and Alcoholics Anonymous.

"How do you--all alone within yourself--feel about your drinking?" the author asks. "Do you think it isn't really a problem, but find yourself wondering at times about it? The question is not 'What do you drink?' or 'How much do you drink?' but 'Have you lost control?'"
