We've all been there. One minute you're fast asleep, and in the next you're tumbling from dreams of deserts and demons, into semi-consciousness, mouth full of sand, head throbbing. You're hungover. Courageous journalist Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall has gone to the front lines of humanity's age-old fight against hangovers to settle once and for all the best way to get rid of the aftereffects of a night of indulgence (short of not drinking in the first place). Hangovers have plagued human beings for about as long as civilization has existed (and arguably longer), so there has been plenty of time for cures to be concocted. But even in 2018, little is actually known about hangovers, and less still about how to cure them. Cutting through the rumour and the myth, Hungover explores everything from polar bear swims, to saline IV drips, to the age-old hair of the dog, to let us all know which ones actually work. And along the way, Bishop-Stall regales readers with stories from humanity's long and fraught relationship with booze, and shares the advice of everyone from Kingsley Amis to a man in a pub.
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.nbsp;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,nbsp;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. Thisnbsp;handbooknbsp;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 younbsp;keep your head straight. nbsp;
A text-dense guide to those seeking strategies: "For those of you who wish to take a few intermediate steps towards actual reading rather than basic, non-linguistic visual perusal, we suggest a great favorite among hangover victims: Map Reading. Maps are absorbing under any condition but can be particularly helpful in focusing one's attention on visualizing where things (including you) actually are."
