It wasn’t so much the social interactions I struggled with; the laughing and chatting were no problem. It’s a really good mix of being informative, factual – but not preachy – and most definitely not ‘it’s my way or the highway’. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Your thirst is your body’s way of telling you that, so take on water even if you don’t feel you need it yet.

Kate and Mandy are familiar faces in the Club Soda community, and this is not their first book either. One line particularly stuck with me: ‘If you’re feeling thirsty, it’s almost too late: your body is already dehydrated.

There is balm for the soul, fire for the belly, a cooling compress for the fevered brow, solace for the wounded, an arm around the lonely shoulder - the whole collection is a matchless compound of hug, tonic and kiss' Stephen FrySometimes only a poem will do. These poetic prescriptions and wise words of advice offer comfort, delight and inspiration for all; a space for reflection, and that precious realization - I'm not the only one who feels like this. And sober living is weaved into the text throughout; though it is not the only topic, everything supports it. Ever since he was a teenager, drinking was his idea of a good time – and not just his, but seemingly the whole nation’s.

In this book, she explores how we find meaning and peace in these loud and frantic times; where we start again after personal and public devastation; how we recapture wholeness after loss; and how we locate our true identities in this frazzled age. Sitting alongside his propensity to admit his ignorance is an attractive willingness to listen to anyone, of any age or social station, who might tell him something meaningful . This bleak statement is especially true for many pop and rock stars, who find themselves catapulted from fame into obscurity virtually overnight, given the unforgiving vagaries of the music industry.

To me, and it’s just my personal opinion, he gave a list of excuses as to why he could have a drink, rather then addressing the issues as to why he shouldn’t have one.This is a positive for book for all of us who drink too much, know it and want to to do something about it. The popular broadcaster and columnist sets out to discover the unsung pleasures of drinking in moderation.

How can we reconnect to one another and to what's sustaining, when evil and catastrophe seem inescapable? So, if you’re a heavy drinker, even if you’re experiencing (as I did) no noticeable ill effects, think about moderating while you can. There are loads of books about quitting the booze completely – but not many about just cutting down and not being a ‘heavy’ drinker.In five or ten years, the way I was going, it was clear to me that I’d have had to stop drinking completely or face some pretty dire consequences with my innards. Yet while the alcohol industry depends on a minority of problem drinkers, the majority really do enjoy in moderation.

These questions lie at the heart of Stitches, Anne Lamott's follow-up to her New York Times-bestselling work, Help, Thanks, Wow. I manage to run a successful business and a family of four, so I can’t be doing that much damage to myself. Just as everyone’s got a different idea of what constitutes moderate drinking, there’s plenty of disagreement as to what heavy drinking looks like.
