Editorial Reviews

Review

"A compassionate and humane argument to overturn draconian drug policies." - Kirkus Reviews

"Hari has made a stimulating hybrid of a book--simultaneously a readable history of the war on drugs and a powerful case for radical reform." - Publishers Weekly

"Breath-taking . . . A powerful contribution to an urgent debate." - John Harris, The Guardian

"Check out Johann Hari's extraordinary new book Chasing the Scream, one of the best books I've ever read about the world of drugs." - Touré, MSNBC

"A riveting book." - San Francisco Chronicle

"A terrific book." - Bill Maher

"Wonderful. I couldn't put it down." - Noam Chomsky

"An absolutely stunning book. It will blow people away." - Elton John

"This book is as intoxicatingly thrilling as crack, without destroying your teeth. It will change the drug debate forever." - Russell Brand

"Superb journalism and thrilling story-telling." - Naomi Klein

"Johann Hari's book is the perfect antidote to the war on drugs, one of the most under-discussed moral injustices of our time. It combines rigorous research and deeply human story-telling. It will prompt an urgently-needed debate." - Glenn Greenwald

"Amazing and bracing and smart. It’s really revolutionary." - Dan Savage

"An astounding book . . . You have to read it." - Amy Goodman, host of DEMOCRACY NOW!

"Incredibly insightful and provocative." - B.J. Novak, writer for THE OFFICE

"Chasing the Scream vividly paints the war on drugs as the century-long bad LSD trip that it is; in doing so it sticks a big nail in its coffin." - Ioan Grillo, author of EL NARCO

"Johann Hari has written a drug policy reform book like no other. Many have studied, or conducted, the science surrounding the manifold ills of drug prohibition. But Hari puts it all into riveting story form, and humanizes it . . . Chasing the Scream is beautifully wrought: lively, humorous, and poignant. And, it's a compelling case for why the drug war must end, yesterday." - Norman Stamper, former chief of the Seattle Police

"This book is an entertainment, a great character study, and page-turning story-telling all rolled into one very sophisticated and compelling cry for social justice." - Stephen Downing, former deputy chief, LAPD
