this book was just what i was looking for. all my life i've known people who were doing or had done drugs in one form or another, including myself. when the only information that is given to you is from PSAs or hard-nosed authorities, you do not really get the 'whole story'. i needed a book that would give me the facts, including drug interactions when taken with other drugs and this book absolutely fits the bill. i am very happy with this book and i have learned so much already and i'm only a third of the way through it.
