About the Author
I am a board certified obstetrician/gynecologist and I have practiced for 30 years. In 1981, early in my career, it was common practice to encourage patients to minimize alcohol as there were medical risks. In my first years in practice, my father died relatively young at age 74 from ruptured esophageal varices, a complication of excessive alcohol intake. In the last 20 years, the increasing research and data on the health benefits of alcohol, especially red wine, have become more apparent. As I continued to follow the literature and research, my own interest grew not only because I am an active medical practitioner but also because I am a trained chemist (PhD) and an experienced wine maker. The increasing knowledge and growing insight of the health benefits of wine reminded me of a story told about Albert Einstein. When asked by his assistant why he gave the same physics exam two years in a row to the same class of students, he responded: “Simple! The answers have changed!”

I've been to one or two wine tastings before with my wine snob friends and so I thought I had picked up a kind of general second-hand knowledge about most of the benefits of drinking wine but I was sorely mistaken. Apparently I had missed out on a couple hundred different points! This book gave in-depth information about how much wine for women to drink, in what type of glass, and the proper method for if you desire to drink more than recommended five ounces per day (drinking red wine with a meal and drinking a glass of water before and after the meal). I had heard before that drinking red wine helps with weight loss but I had no idea for women it tastes different when they are in different stages of their menstrual cycle.
This book moved at a quick pace and was easy to read. Overall it was a highly informative read and I will probably pull it out to read parts of again to share with my mom.
