Choice is the big emphasis in this book: it is your choice whether or not to start smoking. And then it sets about convincing you to choose not to. A question and answer approach covers a short history, explains the elements in tobacco and what each does to the body, talks about the 'buzz' a cigarette can give, and explains very thoroughly why smoking is bad for you. The difficulty of stopping is also given full play, as is the danger from passive smoking. Information about organisations, including web sites, is given. Good colour photos and fact boxes help make the information interesting.
