`An impressive and timely overview of the growing health problem of alcohol and the brain. The book is well illustrated and comprehensive in its coverage. A definite and significant contribution to the field that will provide a firm foundation for future research.' - David J. Nutt, Centre for Neuropsychopharmacology, Imperial College London, UK 'Jenny Svanberg and her colleagues have admirably pulled togeter a range of experts to weave the diffuse literature into a coherent whole that reconciles complex neurobiology with sophisticated neuropsychology and a range of cultural and ethical issues. [...] I was impressed to see the potential relationship of culture to the development of alcohol-related brain damage highlighted in the book. [...] The authors highlight the complex interactions between physiological and psychological factors considered within the context of the dominant social milieu. It is also extremely laudable in an edited volume of this length that adequate scope is given to the ethical issues in considering the individual with alcohol-related brain damage, the use of vignettes being a particularly powerful medium in which to convey topics related to provision of care, mental capacity, and the legal system. In summary, this volume represents an excellent one-stop shop for the interested reader clinician, and research to avail themselves of the contemporary issues associated with the impact of alcohol on the adult brain. The book offers an excellent insight, firmly rooted in the evidences, and it represents an accessibhle read for the nonspecialist and a valuable refresher summary for the specialist looking for an update of key issues. Finally, there is no doubt, after reading this excellent volume, that in a societal-wide context, alcohol represents the most dangerous drug.' -Colin R. Martin, PsycCRITIQUES, October 2015
