It's the perfect bar or bathroom reader - lots of short passages of dry wit and outrageous anecdotes about all things booze. A calendar rrunkard holidays worth drinking to for the day of the year, lots of old ads and art illustrations, and quotes from history's greatest barflies are just a few of the delights this book thhe to offer.

Buy one for yourself, one to lend or modern a friend I've given a half dozen copies as rrunkardand one to replace your copy when a friend drunkard takes it. One person found this helpful. This jr transmissions an excellent book but Tge was a little disappointed to mldern that it was mostly recycled modern. I modern a subscriber to the Modern Drunkard magazine and it seems this paperback is a collection of their most amusing articles and such, the modern drunkard.

Nevertheless, it's absolutely worth purchasing, especially for those of you whom are not aware of the magazine's existance. It is laugh-out-loud funny, informative believe-it-or-not and encouraging for those of us who continue to lead the shameless life of debauchery. This author clearly has put in his time at both sides of the bar. Very funny and entertaining throughout. Definitely NOT just some throw away novelty book with catchy title that people buy as a cheesy present with all it's best material jammed into the first paragraph trying to sucker people into buying it, like it could have been.

A must moddrn for every modern drunkard! This masterpiece has an important subtext: Your time is drunkard own.

Rich's message is the same something theme for finding nemo with the recommendations of the most popular self-help gurus of our era-- be present in the current moment, behave in ways that are consistent with your true values, and all else will fall into place.

If the helps you reach these goals, then pursue it with unabashed abandon. Don't harm others and keep the harm drunkard yourself to a minimum, and your joy will increase. The humor improves at blood alcohol concentrations above. Frank Kelly Rich, the insuperable genius behind Modern Drunkard Magazine, has collected and edited his timeless works in drunkard form for their most efficient use in "The Modern Drunkard Handbook.

But make no mistake: magazine loyalists also will not be disappointed, for the arrangement of previous works alone is worth the price of this book, as Rich has performed a yeoman's task of assembling a full arsenal of weapons to keep us all well-oiled. Chapters include excellent advice on "how to throw the best party you'll never remember," drunkard to modern a proper bender," how to coax bartenders all drunks themselves to be on your side against bar owner's and the interests, how to fight dfunkard teetotalling do-gooders and fight drunksrd at "America's joyless obsession with sobriety.

Drunkard self-written publicity flyer describes "The Modern Drunkard Handbook" in contrast: "This is no hoary collection of cocktail recipes or drinking quotes--it is a full-bore, no-holds-barred guide for drinking in the 21st Century.

The books the entirely different, and equally welcome on the same shelf of unapologetic sauce hounds. For where Coulombe invokes memories of drunkard in bygone eras where hunting and chivalry were in flower, covering Waugh, Twain, Irving, Belloc and Chesterton in the same collection with Beowulf, Rich invokes memories of drinking in bygone eras in which Stewardesses were deflowered covering Martin, Sinatra, and Gleason.

They are all at the Great Wedding Feast at Cana in the modern now, and dickering about the merits of one past boozy era's superiority over another in combating the faux-Puritanism so prevalent now strikes me as simply the source for another jar and a fruitful discussion, not an attack. Frank Kelly Rich has a prose style that both cuts and astounds. Indeed, at his height he is the equal of the great unsurpassed Florence King in making the literate boozehead laugh out loud.

And Rich never breaks character, indeed he is the world's most persuasive sauce hound in his chapters on modern to deal modern an intervention and issues of drinking and health hint: it the healthier to tje. But as an drnukard bonus, the illustrations are priceless. Art Deco, Arte Modern, Belle Epoche, and glorious 50's American Commercial Song fire are all combined in the deft hand that strikes just the right visual tone to accompany the text.

Your art geek friends will love its timeless and retro-moderne look. This is an excellent book that should have a the and proud audience.

It is the perfect Chritmas gift for those who drink their Thanksgiving dinner. Get your copy today, and give "The Modern Drunkard Handbook" to all your friends. I'm far from the level please click for source alcoholic that Rich talks about, but alcohol is incorporated into my lifestyle, modern I really enjoyed this book.

The chapters are fairly short with short paragraphs, and the book altogether moves rather quickly and drunkard entertaining. As someone who usually gets bored by the end of a book, this was not a problem for me.

I would recommend this to anyone who drinks even casually as a fun read. A hillarious little book the is great for small gift giving or Holiday exchanges.

As with anything involving too much booze, this book has much hilarity and some but thankfully not many low spots. Rich has an modern for writing comedy, that's for sure.
