Everything you wish to have to know to assess, keep in mind, and strengthen a hangover is here: dozens of comforting recipes, very clever graphic tests for analyzing your frame of mind, and quizzes for tracking your progress.
A good hangover brings its victim to a new frame of mind—and one that, when looked at objectively, can be relatively fascinating to its host: It can create an increased awareness of the body, a willingness to eat something regularly off limits, and a fascination with the mind’s peculiar acrobatics. With P. G. Wodehouse’s six hangovers—The Broken Compass, The Sewing Machine, The Comet, The Atomic, The Cement Mixer, and The Gremlin Boogie—as a place to begin, recipes are tailored to each specific malady, allowing the reader to find a recipe (or just a menu item) that precisely suits his frame of mind . . . and body. Interspersed with the recipes are mind games, witticisms and graphic jokes, insights into hangover science, quizzes to see in case you are still inebriated or now just merely hungover, and more.
