Jo-Ann Duff (Duffy The Writer)
I bloody loved Dopeworld. Author Niko Vorobyov is a smart if slightly cocky writer with a devilish and sarcastic wit. He takes us through his foray into drug dealing and is boldly upfront about his views. What you find out early on is that this is not an anti-drug book full of tales and tragedy about drug use.

This was a brilliantly amusing look at the history and underworld of drugs and drug users. Told from a very realistic, down to earth view, Vorobyov’s voice was compelling. With a perfect mix of interesting and beyond hilarious anecdotes. This was a brilliant read.

Excellent and timely reportage about the trillion dollar drug business and the way forward towards harm minimisation from someone who's been there. Essential reading for the rare politician who actually care about improving their society.
