Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Like other books in this informative series, Smoking opens with a description of the origins of the subject¾tobacco use. Outside pressures that lead people to smoke, the ingredients of cigarettes, and the effects of smoking on the lungs, heart, and other parts of the body are discussed. The effects of passive smoke are addressed and, finally, a useful chapter on how to kick the habit and stop smoking for good is discussed. Interesting facts are included, such as the fact that most smokers take up smoking in adolescence, and that research is being conducted to link increased mobile phone usage with a decrease in the incidence of smoking. There is a short glossary, an index, and a resource list of books, videos, and Websites. Photos of young people and testimonials are included. The book is one in the "Health Issues" series. The consultant to the series is Dr. Kirsten Lamb, a general practitioner in England, Scotland, and the Netherlands. Recommended for school, library, and home use. 2002, Raintree/Steck-Vaughn,
