Publisher's Summary

We've all been there. One minute you're fast asleep, and in the next, you're tumbling from dreams of deserts and demons into semi-consciousness, mouth full of sand, head throbbing. You're hungover. Courageous journalist Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall has gone to the front lines of humanity's age-old fight against hangovers to settle once and for all the best way to get rid of the aftereffects of a night of indulgence (short of not drinking in the first place).

Hangovers have plagued human beings for about as long as civilization has existed (and arguably longer), so there has been plenty of time for cures to be concocted. But even in 2018, little is actually known about hangovers, and less still about how to cure them. Cutting through the rumor and the myth, Hungover explores everything from polar bear swims to saline IV drips to the age-old hair of the dog to let us all know which ones actually work. And along the way, Bishop-Stall regales listeners with stories from humanity's long and fraught relationship with booze and shares the advice of everyone from Kingsley Amis to a man in a pub.

Way too many stories about nothing

The historical stories about drinking and the science related to different cures was very good information.

The authors long winded stories about his personal drinking habits were way too many and not at all interesting . This book should be 1/3 its length . Good information though
