With P. G. Wodehouse’s six hangovers—The Broken Compass, The Sewing Machine, The Comet, The Atomic, The Cement Mixer, and The Gremlin Boogie—as a starting point, recipes are tailored to each specific malady, allowing the reader to find a recipe (or just a menu item) that precisely suits his state of mind . . . and body. Interspersed with the recipes are mind games, witticisms and graphic jokes, insights into hangover science, quizzes to see if you are still drunk or now just merely hungover, and more.

    Brilliant book, but as I sit here eating wonderful tomato’s & tahini spread on toast... (indeed a great hangover cure thank you Milton!) ....I wonder why , in my search to google this book online, I found that not a single promoter has spelt the title correctly! What’s that about then?! (Gloucester accent required on that last sentence). It’s ‘The Hungoevr Coobkook’ for heavens sake!!! Orla kirwan (01453 299675)

    It's a nice gift to give someone mocking them as drunk. But the content of the book is only recipies, book is extremely short and pricey (10 dollars for a ~100 page recipe book). I think the idea of the book is fun and the author was writing this book more for the innovation than the knowledge or sorry telling. It's a nice gift to give someone mocking them as drunk.

    Enjoyable enough, has some interesting recipes that I will probably never attempt but always know that this book is close by if I have enough energy and can clearly read without the words swimming away.

    I was expecting something different, funny book, some good recipes, but nothing new at all.

    Got it as a gift. Funny, but could include more recipes with just the bare basic ingredients-who wants to go out for groceries when hungover? Had a bag of chips instead.

    A book about hungover cures. Whatever will they think of next? Come to think of it, Crawford probably isn't even the first one to have this idea. Many of the recipes seem interesting and tasty, and the idea to divide to book into chapters according to Bertie Wooster's hungover types was fun. But who has the energy to cook in that condition? No-one, that's who. This book gave me a few chuckles, but I predict that in the long run it'll be perfectly forgettable. But it dead make me want to a.eat a l A book about hungover cures.

    A silly little book that doesn't require much more than a perusal. Many of the recipes are run-of-the mill egg dishes with a few really clever uses mixed in. The writing style is super cheeky and British which suits a book on this subject. It is an entertaining read with plenty of humorous descriptions on hangover symptoms and styles. At the very least the illustrations and minimalistic style of the layout invite you to pick it up and check out a recipe no matter how much you had to drink last n A silly little book that doesn't require much more than a perusal.

    It gets one star for being funny, although he steals his funny from PG Wodehouse. And one star for for one good recipe. The British ought to stay away from attempting Mexican food. Lamb Kidneys? You're suggesting hungover people ought to eat lamb kidneys on toast?!! It gets one star for being funny, although he steals his funny from PG Wodehouse. And one star for for one good recipe.
