Seventy percent of Americans take prescription drugs and more than half of us receive two or more prescriptions. Our use and sometimes dependence on these elixirs is not a uniquely national or modern trait; for thousands of years, cultures of nearly every description searched for and found remedies to heal their bodies and quiet their minds. Michael Gerald's The Drug Book is a 500+-page walk through of medications that include everything from alcohol, hashish, and speed to polio vaccines, Xanax, and new diet drugs. Best read with a soothing cup of herbal tea.
