We've been suffering hangovers for as long as anyone can remember. So, if we've known about hangovers for so long, how come we've never figured out how to put a stop to them? A great deal of research has gone into the mystery of the hangover. The scientists have all the answers and their ultimate solution to the hangover problem is "don't drink." But that's just crazy talk, so maybe they're not so clever after all. There are plenty of hangover cures—from Prairie Oysters and Bloody Marys to burnt toast, hearty breakfasts, and bananas. But only a few of them do any good at all, and some of them can actually do more harm than good. This handbook provides all of the best hangover cures, drinking jokes to cheer you up, cautionary true tales from around the world about the perils of the demon drink, the odd drinking quote or ditty, and lots of hard facts to help you keep your head straight.
