"This book provides a comprehensive review of substance abuse disorders by many of the world's leading experst in the field, and its contributors have a truly broad international representation. The chapters are clearly and authoritatively written, and each section is followed by commentaries that add the experience of experts to the evidence presented in the chapters." (Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, April 2012)

"The commentaries at the end of each section are pertinent and, at times, thought provoking. This book would be best appreciated by individuals with knowledge in this area, but will be educational for anyone interested in this topic." (Doody's, 21 October 2011)

"In this valuable contribution to the field, Ghodse (International Centre for Drug Policy, U. of London, UK) introduces a dozen chapters by international experts that address tobacco, alcohol, and other legal and illicit drugs." (Booknews, 1 April 2011)
