Editorial Reviews

Jane Brody - New York Times
“In a fascinating and inspiring book, [the authors] give 30 former smokers a chance to share the secrets of their success. The stories can be a source of inspiration, hope, and helpful hits for smokers who have, like the storytellers, made repeated failed attempts to quit.”
Joseph A. Califano
“If you've ever tried to quit smoking and failed, and you want to make your next puff your last one, read this book and you'll find out how to do it. These are the real life stories of a host of individuals who have made it.”
Library Journal
Thirty-two not very inspiring stories from people who have quit smoking are collected in this volume by Farquhar (medicine, Stanford) and Spiller, a nutrition researcher at University of California, Berkeley. Tobacco heir Patrick Reynolds and actress Celeste Holm's experiences are included, with those of 30 other people of all ages and occupations. Better choices are Steve Allen's Passionate Nonsmoker's Bill of Rights ( LJ 9/15/89) and Robert S. Sobel's Quit for Life (LJ 12/88).-- Robert Schmid, L.R.C., Univ. of Health Sciences/Chicago Medical Sch., North Chicago
