Published by Hodder Wayland (Health Matters series), 1997
A detailed explanation of drugs both good and bad - and this includes tobacco and alcohol. We learn about specific medical drugs, how drugs are made, some history of drugs, and how they work. We are also given the dangers of illegal use and told about different sorts of illegal drugs and their effects on the body. Ways are given of making oneself feel happy without the use of drugs, and in the end we are told it all comes down to choice. Colour photographs, colour graphics and comic style illustrations, as well as a glossary, an index and a list of further help make the book more useful.
