"Essential for all libraries, this important contribution to the understanding of a significant social problem should become a classic." -- D.J. Hanson of SUNY College at Potsdam
"For researchers, this is a detailed review of existing literature and a great new body of data and analysis to complement and extend knowledge in the field...It gives practitioners much needed information to help address the cognitive and behavioural effects on children of alcoholics, and how working on family strengthening and family harmony can build the resistance to reduce likelihood of problem drinking later in life." -- Journal of Substance Misuse
