From the Back Cover:

Based on the most current psychological and pharmacological research (little of which has been easily accessible to the general public) Buzzed provides a reliable, unbiased look at the use and abuse of legal and illegal drugs. Neither a "Just Say No" treatise nor a "How To" manual, Buzzed is based on the conviction that people make healthier decisions when they "Just Say Know": when they understand in straightforward language how our complex brains really work, and why even small doses of various substances can have such powerful (and sometimes life-threatening) effects. Buzzed cuts through a vast amount of misinformation and propaganda to tell the truth about drugs -- from alcohol, caffeine, and anti-anxiety pills to heroin, ecstasy, and special-K.

About the Author:
