Drinking Tips And Advice From A 500-Year-Old German Book

When should you drink moderately, and when can you waste yourself? Who should you drink with? These are essential for a wonderful drinking experience, and these questions are answered by a 500-year-old book titled How to Drink: A Classical Guide to the Art of Imbibing. The book was written in Latin by a man named Vincent Obsopoeus in 1536. A translated version of the book by Michael Fontaine was recently released by the Princeton University Press.
