"Temendous! ...easy to read and understand. ...a "must have" for lawyers, police officers, chemists, counselors and anyone else working in or on the fringes of psychoactives." James R. Young, Ph.D., Forensic Chemist
"I was amazed at how you made the chemistry so easy to understand... I highly recommend your new book to all my brother and sister officers throughout the country." Gregory F. Lennon, Captain of Police (Ret)Review:
Snow's new book Amphetamine Syntheses is an excellent volley filled with facts, testimony, history and of course lots of chemistry. I found the book quite readable, easy to understand, and noteworthy so far as presenting the overlooked position of the independent neuroscientist and his world. I suspect you will see this book being used by a lot of lawyers, forensic chemists, social scientists and drug philosophers looking for some truth, facts, sanity and common-sense - all collected in one spot. -- Psychedelics ReImagined, Thomas Lyttle; Autonomedia 1998
