      Not exactly what I thought it would be but none the less a good read It is a history lesson on the various abstinence and temperance movements from the early 1800 s to the early 1900 s I had no idea food was includee I found it interesting that it started with moderation instead of total abstinence but once the hardliners were in control it basically became a whole new ballgame.
