A good book to read and keep on hand. Or would make a great gift for the fan / reader in your life. Excerpt from the Preface: This work of Dr. Alcott has had a wide circulation, and has saved thousands from forming a bad habit and reclaimed many who were slaves to it. He was one of the early and earnest writers on this much needed reform, but since his day, new phases of the habit have appeared: -- notably, that of the cigarette, the worst form of the habit, enticing to ruin of growth, health, and morals millions of children and youth. With new devices for dissipation, new means are required for reform. Fifty years ago few used tobacco before the age of twenty, but with the increase of wealth and enterprise, the habit has so increased, that a majority seem to be devotees, and children six years old openly or stealthily practice it.
