Why do people smoke? ISBN: 9780750227599
Powell, Jillian
Published by Hodder Wayland (Why? series), 2000
Detailed information in an easily read form, giving pros and cons of smoking, lots of facts worldwide about smoking and its effects, case studies from individual smokers, and a potted history of tobacco and smoking. Coloured boxes with 'bites' of information and quotes from organisations, photographs, a glossary, a list of helpful groups with addresses and web sites, and a good index add to the usefulness of an information book that pulls no punches. Best for secondary schools, but good readers at 10 can use it happily.
