This book gives a detailed explanation of the findings of Project MATCH. This undertaking was a large study that evaluated whether the treatment of alcoholism could be improved by pairing different kinds of treatment with different types of alcoholics. This appears to be the largest study of this kind yet conducted, involving 1,726 subjects from numerous locations. The rationale, methodology, and results are well presented. This small volume is very concise and maintains the standards expected in a research-based text. The project was primarily derived from research funded by the National Institute of Alcohol and Alcohol Abuse. It is good to know what happens to tax dollars, and in this case they appear to have been well spent.
