Overview

Tobacco use kills more people than any other addiction and we know that addiction starts in childhood and youth.
We all agree that youths should not smoke, but how can this be accomplished? What prevention messages will they find compelling? What effect does tobacco advertising--more than $10 million worth every day--have on youths? Can we responsibly and effectively restrict their access to tobacco products?
These questions and more are addressed in Growing Up Tobacco Free, prepared by the Institute of Medicine to help everyone understand the troubling issues surrounding youths and tobacco use.
Growing Up Tobacco Free provides a readable explanation of nicotine's effects and the process of addiction, and documents the search for an effective approach to preventing the use of cigarettes, chewing and spitting tobacco, and snuff by children and youths. It covers the results of recent initiatives to limit young people's access to tobacco and discusses approaches to controls or bans on tobacco sales, price sensitivity among adolescents, and arguments for and against taxation as a prevention strategy for tobacco use. The controversial area of tobacco advertising is thoroughly examined.
With clear guidelines for public action, everyone can benefit by reading and acting on the messages in this comprehensive and compelling book.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Susan Levy, PhD (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Description: This is a landmark publication that integrates state-of-the-art social science behavioral and clinical research on tobacco with public policy and a clear prevention agenda for priority issues, targeting youth.
Purpose: The book is a result of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) identifying a priority need for studying prevention of nicotine addiction in children and youths. A prestigious list of funders and scientific experts created a book which reviews and evaluates the scientific literature on the epidemiology of nicotine addiction and primary and secondary prevention; reviews the environmental, social and policy enabling factors and important grass roots programs; and sets a research and policy agenda.
Audience: The potential audience for this book includes policymakers at all levels, all school personnel, medical and legal professionals, and clinical and behavioral scientists. The committee responsible for this IOM report consists of only outstanding and knowledgeable people in their related disciplines.
Features: The book is appropriately illustrated, superbly and clearly referenced, and up-to-date. The book is easy to read for such material and all research is beautifully synthesized and integrated with policy needs and future research recommendations.
Assessment: This is a book that can serve as an excellent reference for personal use or public policy. Anyone involved with youth and tobacco prevention research or policy should own and read this superb book.
