Praise for The Prohibition Hangover
"Garrett Peck provides a clear, concise, and stimulating overview about alcohol use and alcohol policy in the United States since Repeal in 1933. The book deftly combines careful research, excellent story-telling, and strong opinions about strong drink."
"The Prohibition Hangover is an excellent book in every way: it is well researched, thoughtful, and entertaining to read. From discussions of policies since Prohibition to Americans' tastes for drinks throughout the decades, this book will be of interest to anyone interested in alcohol."
-- Edward Stringham, Trinity College, and author of "No Booze? You May Lose"
"Garrett Peck effectively captures the essence of America's love/hate relationship with alcoholic beverages. While some of his conclusions are controversial, his book is well-written and comprehensive."
"A great summary of the social trends that are shaping the consumption of alcohol in America today ... and likely far into the future."
"This is the first book in many years that looks at a much misunderstood era in American history with a fresh and honest perspective - and makes it relevant to the reader. Each page leaves you thirsting for more."
-- Chris Morris, Master Distiller, Woodford Reserve Distillery
