Published by Hodder Wayland (What About Health series), 2001
A simplified version of the title 'Drugs and your health' from Wayland's 'Health matters' series. Photographs, comic style illustrations and some diagrams give a simple, clear picture of what drugs do to the body - both good things and bad. The section on illegal drugs shows what each one looks like, and sections on such subjects as drugs in history, drugs in sport, and how drugs work add much to the interest of the book. The usual index, glossary, list of further reading, and some organizations to contact make it particularly useful to schools.
