6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Raina L. Mehrten on September 24, 2002
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book to study for a quiz-out test for my Psych major. I read through three chapters the first time I picked it up. I usually have to force myself to complete an assignment, but with this book I just kept reading with no pushing whatsoever! I highly recommend this book to anyone taking a class in this subject, whether or not it is the required text. It would be a great additional information source. It is helpful if you or someone you know may be going through any type of drug or alcohol treatment--from caffeine to heroin. I also enjoyed the online quizzes you are allowed to access once you have the book. It really enforces what you have learned.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Kent Bell on November 16, 1998
Format: Paperback
This book is the source for unbiased information on the sociological, psychological, pathological effects of "drugs" - this compendium covers everything from caffeine to antipsychotics to alcohol to psychedelics and everything in between. A review of the history of each drug introduces each chapter. Careful attention is paid to not only the effects of the drugs themselves, but the effect which they have on our laws and the way in which treat addiction.
As a former student of Dr. Ray's I can attest to the thoroughness of this work. It is the one book that doesn't tell you what to think about drugs - it provides you with the data to be informed to make your own decision. In fact the DEA uses this book in training! If you are looking for a comprehensive resource for school, your own interest, or just to be informed to talk to your kids, look no further.

Format: Paperback
An excellent general overview, covering drug use and
regulation, pharmacological basics, in-depth analyses of the
legal drugs, tranquilizers and stimulants, narcotics,
hallucinogens, and marijuana, and comments on "a rational look
at drug use." Well-documented with an abundance of relevant
quotes and statistics; a rich set of references follow each
chapter.
