Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Together, the first two editions of Buzzedhave sold over 120,000 copies'"and now the authors have revised and updated the book to include the most recent discoveries about drugs, including new information on the energy drinks craze, prescription drugs such as OxyContin and Ambien, and the date-rape drug GHB. Scientifically accurate and easy to read, this no-nonsense handbook gives the most balanced, objective information available on the most often used and abused drugs, from alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine to heroin, Ecstasy, and methamphetamine. In both quick-reference summaries and in-depth analysis, it reports on how these drugs enter the body, how they manipulate the brain, their short-term and long-term effects, the kinds of 'high' they produce, and the circumstances in which they can be deadly. Neither a 'Just Say No' treatise nor a 'How to' manual, Buzzedis based on the conviction that people make better decisions with accurate information at hand.
