The problem—one of them, at least—is that most of us were never taught how to drink, not really, not unless you count watching uncles gulp dirty martinis or high school football players shotgun beers. That education will only get you so far.
It’s time to imbibe correctly, and fortunately for us all, author Matthew Latkiewicz has compiled this helpful, wryly humorous guide to help you navigate any drinking situation and answer any burning and crucial questions, including:
The author promises that most if not all drinking topics are covered and has the vast experience to prove it.
Matthew Latkiewicz’s essential YOU SUCK AT DRINKING is at once tipsy-funny and drily sage: a wonderful wise-guide—if you will*—to the ethics and etiquttte of artful drunkardry.
*Please don’t. I hate puns. I must have been drunk when I wrote this blurb. TIME TO RE-READ THE BOOK.
I’ve been drinking for twenty years now, but I’ve never really known what I was doing. What’s in a bloody Mary? I don’t know. Is white wine the same thing as red wine? Beats me. Fortunately, Matthew Latkiewicz has written an accessible, responsible guide to the dark art of getting alcohol into your body. Thanks to him I can look forward to many happy years of boozing ahead of me.
The success of Latkiewicz’s satire lies in the disarming accuracy of his hilarious portrayal of American drinking customs; he plays with our repressed anxiety about alcohol like a cat torments it’s prey. Perhaps the only thing we suck at more than drinking, as the title of his handbook suggests, is opening up provocative dialogue about a host of situations in life where sobriety is less than ideal. Thankfully, we have Matthew to get the conversation started.
