Review:

The authors . . . cover the important topics with great clarity, and the reader will find all the subjects accessible. . . . A particular delight is that the book is sumptuously illustrated many of the illustrations are eye-catching and attention-grabbing. . . . I highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to learn about psychopharmacology. --Allan Hunter Young, The New England Journal of Medicine

For over 30 years I have been teaching about this engaging subject ( non-medical drug use, not drug abuse ). This is certainly the best, most clearly written, and by far the most interesting book that I have seen in this area. --Oliver M. Brown, State University of New York, Upstate Medical University
