3.5 stars. I was expecting this book to contain a larger quantity of stories of people affected by meth addiction, but the Reding was correct to keep the focus on a few individual stories over a longer period of time. It takes away the sensationalism that seems to surround most writing about the rural meth problem.

I am glad to see someone is talking about the side effects of the meth production process. Industrial chemical production is taking place in people's homes and vehicles, much to the detriment of the people who live near or with them. Reding tells of children and infants who are exposed to meth because it's being made where they live.
