About
As long as there have been hangovers, there have been attempts to get rid of them.

The ancient Romans consumed owl eggs, the Mongolians sheep eyes and the Syrians ground-up sparrow beaks. To this day, despite convenience-store shelves full of mass-marketed elixirs, a true antidote still eludes us. In Hungover: The Morning After and One Man’s Quest for a Cure, acclaimed journalist and witty raconteur Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall risks “life and liver” (Adam Rogers) to explore what happens to our bodies and minds when we over-imbibe and all the ways that we have tried to find relief. He delves into the infamous consequences of those rough mornings experienced by the greats of the past—from Noah to Churchill to pitcher David Wells—and recounts his own daring mission to find a cure so that you don’t have to.

Hungover is an irresistible blend of culture, history, science, philosophy and mischievous humour. Part Simon Winchester, part A. J. Jacobs and all Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall, Hungover is both a lamentation and a celebration of a very human experience.
