Description

The fifth edition of the essential, accessible source for understanding how drugs work and their effects on body and behaviour.

Fully updated, this matter-of-fact handbook includes the most recent discoveries about drug use, including new information on electronic smoking devices, abuse of prescription stimulants and the opioid crisis. “Lively, highly informative, unbiased, [and] thorough” (Addiction Research & Theory), Buzzed surveys drugs from caffeine to heroin to reveal how these drugs affect the body, the different “highs” they produce and the circumstances in which they can be deadly.

Neither a “Just Say No” treatise nor a “How to” manual, Buzzed is based on the conviction that people make better decisions with accurate information at hand.

Reviews

“A unique, up-to-date, and useful source for all those interested in the workings of and effects of legal and illegal drugs, regardless of whether you are a concerned mother or Irvine Welsh!” — The British Psychological Society

Buzzed is one of the most important books I’ve ever read... So comprehensive and so readable that I recommend everybody who’s interested in this area—kids who are taking drugs, parents, professionals… and, most of all, politicians and legislators—to read it.” — Irvine Welsh

“Well written and easy to read. [Buzzed] could be used as a resource to be consulted, dipped into simply for interest’s sake, or read from cover to cover... If you are looking for an up-to-date, accessible source of information regarding drugs of abuse, this book would be a good starting point.” — The Ulster Medical Journal
