Publisher's Summary

Alcohol is a drug that has achieved the ultimate illusion. It has managed to convince the western world that it isn’t a drug at all, but rather a harmless social pleasantry. A product that does none of the things that the marketing promises that it does and yet remains unchallenged for such false advertising.
A beverage that kills over 63,000 people a year and yet still remains legal in virtually every country around the world. Craig Beck is known as the Stop Drinking Expert because he helps people to see the truth about alcohol, hidden behind the smoke and mirrors of the marketing and our own self-created social conditioning.
His book Alcohol Lied to Me has topped best seller charts for many years and has been translated into several different languages."Alcohol is the ultimate wolf in sheep’s clothing, a deeply insidious and dangerous drug packaged into pretty bottles and marketed as a fun, social pleasantry by the drinks manufacturers. The western world is conditioned from birth to believe that good times and alcohol go hand in hand. In reality consuming this drug is like playing a very dangerous game of Buckaroo, the longer you keep playing the more chance you have the mule will kick and destroy your world." (Craig Beck)
In The Alcohol Illusion Craig gives away the secrets of the magician and helps you see how the drug traps you and keeps you locked in a never ending loop. Once you see how the trick is done…escape is only a matter of time. If you are worried about your drinking this audiobook can change your life!

Alan Partridge does alcoholism...

What would have made The Alcohol Illusion better?

More reliable and valid statistics and an evidential basis to support the book's arguments. Less of an Alan Partridge "I'm a regional radio personality" vibe.

What could Craig Beck have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

See above. As cod-psychology goes, this ranks at Daily Mail level. Oh, and avoid the massive incongruous detours into regional radio land.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Craig has a good reading voice and some interesting experiences to share about his drinking, but don't we all..? Who needs another D-list celebrity drunk-alogue?

What character would you cut from The Alcohol Illusion?

The author, but then that would leave a very thin book...

Any additional comments?

There's a lot of good literature on alcoholism and recovery today, and goodness knows we need it - particularly those people for whom AA isn't an answer.

This book, unfortunately, doesn't quite make the contribution required. It is one re-write short of being ready for publication in my honest opinion.
