Book Review - 'High on a Dream'

Since alcohol abuse is becoming rife among teenagers, this new book by David A. Stewart is most timely. The author of Thirst for Freedom, among other books and articles, has a special way with young people, and this book has a particular appeal for them. It is remarkable for its insights; the format is most attractive; the reading is easy.

Many facets of problem drinking are illuminated. "All are high on a dream," Dr. Stewart writes. "Nothing wrong with that. The exciting adventure is to learn how to feel good and high without getting sick. The problem drinker, the drug abuser, the leaner, the schemer, and the loner are all encouraged to accept their disorders at depth. Resist not evil. That is what this book is about."
