Six Pack and Fake Id

Daniel Cohen, Author, Susan Cohen, With M. Evans and Company $13.95 (150p) ISBN 978-0-87131-459-8
The Cohens claim that teenagers can buy a fake I.D. at stores clustered around the Port Authority bus station in New York. The license to indulge in what underaged boys and girls consider a ""social necessity,'' hard drink, costs about $10 and is fraudulently stamped with the name of a college. The same deals can be made almost anywhere, the reader learns, in this sane and thorough coverage of the subject, the most widely used and abused drug in America. Tragedies stemming from the effects of drink on people of all ages, including 13-year-olds, are presented factually, as are alternatives to liquor, an approach that reasonably sensible minors should find convincing. The authors describe the contents of all forms of inebriants, from beer and wine to brandy, and their effects. The text includes lists of nation-wide organizations that offer specific information about drinking, counseling services, etc. A valuable book. (12up)
