Review: Nutt’s Drink

Drink? The New Science of Alcohol and Your Health 
David Nutt

Checked this out after it received glowing praise from Tyler Cowen and it was well worth it. Drink is an investigation into our relationship with alcohol and it’s historical importance, especially focused on England. But the main thrust of the book is a detailed investigation into what it does to our body and mind.

Spoiler alert – it’s not good.

Nutt isn’t a teetotaler, but I’ll be honest that this book made me rethink my own beer after work routine. This is probably the most information health book I have read in years and I’ve read my fair share.
