“At once tipsy-funny and dryly sage: a wonderful wise guide to the ethics and etiquette of drunkardry.”
—John Hodgman, correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

“I've been drinking for twenty years now, but I've never really known what I was doing. What's in a Bloody Mary? I don't know. Is white wine the same thing as red wine? Beats me. Fortunately, Matthew Latkiewicz has written an accessible, responsible guide to the dark art of getting alcohol into your body. Thanks to him I can look forward to many happy years of boozing ahead of me.”
—David Rees, author of How To Sharpen Pencils

“The success of Latkiewicz's satire lies in the disarming accuracy of his hilarious portrayal of American drinking customs; he plays with our repressed anxiety about alcohol like a cat torments its prey. Perhaps the only thing we suck at more than drinking, as the title of his handbook suggests, is opening up provocative dialogue about a host of situations in life where sobriety is less than ideal. Thankfully, we have Matthew to get the conversation started.”
—Jim Meehan, author of The PDT Cocktail Book
