    The Drinking Game
    The Drinking Game
    <b>An incisive analysis of how our drinking culture is influenced by the government, media and big business, by investigative journalist Guyon Espiner.</b><br/><br/><i>'This is real, it is raw, and it lays out the truth about booze.' </i>- Patrick Gower<br/><i>'Thought-provoking but never preachy, Espiner blends personal experience with his formidable journalism talents as he dissects the role of booze in our lives.' </i>- Jack Tame<br/><br/>Ever wondered why it always seems like a good time for a drink?<br/><br/>Four years ago, investigative journalist Guyon Espiner gave up drinking alcohol. He had been a heavy yet controlled drinker since his teens - abstaining three nights a week but making up for it the other four. One morning he woke up after a big night and decided he'd had enough and he quit - no AA, no support groups. Not drinking has given Guyon a new perspective on our relationship with alcohol in Aotearoa, and a lot of it is disturbing.<br/><br/><i>The Drinking Game</i> investigates the alcohol industry: the power, politics and lobbying behind our most harmful drug. Weaving together personal experience, hard research and interviews, it examines why New Zealand has such a heavy drinking culture, the harm it causes and how our attitudes to alcohol are changing.<br/><br/>This is a sobering look into how the way you drink is shaped not only by your individual choice, but also by government, media and big business.<br/><br/>
