" Quit Like a Woman covers an important topic that many people are dealing with today – alcoholism and how to combat it. However, I felt like it could have gone into more detail in some areas, as sometimes the discussion felt shallow or lacking in depth. Whitaker has clearly done extensive research on the subject matter and provides some good insights into how we can better approach drinking habits in our society, but I don't feel like she went deep enough into some of the complex issues surrounding alcohol consumption. For example, she didn't dive into why certain demographics are more prone to alcohol abuse than others or how different forms of media fuel our cultural obsession with alcohol. I also would have liked to see her discuss alternative ways of approaching sobriety beyond just refraining from drinking entirely; this could include moderation-based approaches, mindfulness techniques, etc., which may be more conducive for certain people looking for help. The book does provide some interesting perspectives on how we view drinking in our culture but lacks the level of detail needed to really drive home its message. As such, it's probably not worth your time unless you're specifically interested in this subject matter and want more surface-level information about it. "
