Stellar book. I was absolutely fascinated (and horrified) to read about poisons, prohibition, and the beginning of formal toxicology. You know going in that poisons are BAD, but unless you're a chemist or doctor, you don't really know why or how they are bad for you. This book is well-written, engaging, and has the potential to really suck in the reader. I have been recommending it to all my friends!
