Armed with cutting wit and a degenerate world view, "How To Booze" provides frank, humorous musings on the contemporary art of drinking and the reasons we do it. You may find yourself rendezvousing with your ex-or trying to ignore the fact that the person you are bringing back to your apartment is almost fantastically unattractive. You may be making an embarrassment of yourself at your high school reunion-or trying to impress your weirdo in-laws. Or maybe you just want that last taste before heading to an AA meeting. Whatever the situation, Altier and Kaye have the perfect cocktail for temporary self-improvement. Along with the delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes and plenty of useful information on mixing drinks, they offer amusingly accurate insights about our destructive, flawed, beautiful selves, peeling back the psychological layers to discover why we're really drinking in the first place.
