School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up
A comprehensive resource. Each chapter is written to stand alone, so students can dip in and use the information in each section for reports or to answer personal questions without having to read the entire book. Topics addressed include different types of tobacco products, addiction, health effects, statistics, and how to stop using tobacco. The examples and strategies for quitting are tailored to young people. Several help hotlines and Web sites are included. The book is packed full of statistics, with sources to help students look up more. The only drawback is that the organization by section allows some overlap, so some facts and statements are repeated many times in the book. However, since it is not really intended to be read straight through, this will not affect most users.
