M.J. -
If you smoke this book should definatley be at the top of you list of things to buy in your bid to escape tobacco. I myself do not smoke but my husband does and i found this book to be a gentle way to encourage him to become a non smoker. The easy to understand and well set out headings for each section mean You can flick through the book and read whats relevant to You rather than having to fight your way through from beginning to end to get to the point. The book covers a range of topics that can affect smokers and non smokers alike, the section on how smoking affects pets is quite enlightening for a start. I have read the book front start to finish myself and believe that it will be a great help to any who wish to be smoke free, there is a good balance between down to earth practical advice and professional medical information. One of the best things i like about this book is that the Author does not lecture as a lot of self help books do, his writing style is encouraging and helpful. I look forward to his next work and to seeing the results of my husband beating the smoke with the help of this book.
