Reviews

"That so many American women stand at the edge of a liquid cliff is a surprising and scary problem that Gabrielle Glaser illuminates powerfully. For those who have a loved one standing there, you will find hope here."--Sheryl WuDunn, Pulitzer Prize-winning coauthor of the national bestseller Half the Sky
"Glaser has written an engaging account of women and drink, citing fascinating studies about modern stressors...and evidence that some problem drinkers can learn moderation....Bound to stir controversy."--People
"Glaser approaches [her topic] with investigative rigor and thoughtful analysis."--Boston Globe
"Insightful and provocative."--Publishers Weekly
"An important addition to feminist literature that calls upon women to reject a spurious equality 'whose consequences in broken families, broken hearts, and broken futures, are all too real' and face up to the problem of alcohol dependency before it takes over their lives."--Kirkus Reviews
"With humor, thoughtfulness and skillful research, Glaser paints a picture of mature female drinking today. You'll see yourself or your friends on almost every page."--Parents.com
"A well-researched look into the differences between how men and women drink, what their motivations are for drinking, and how they should cope with drinking problems."--Jezebel.com
"Her Best-Kept Secret reveals the existence of an epidemic with profound implications for women and their loved ones. This compassionate yet authoritative book explains why millions of ordinary women are turning to alcohol to handle the strains of daily life--and what they can do about it."--Hilda Hutcherson, MD, bestselling author of What Your Mother Never Told You About S-e-x
