"Really good overview of everything regarding addiction. Social, political, medical, criminal and personal."

"Great book. Nuanced and thoughtful. Bringing together a lot of news and events I was previously aware of into a cohesive narrative that I hadn't clearly understood before. Bad audiobook. "
