Ending the Tobacco Holocaust: How Big Tobacco Affects Our Health

by Michael Rabinoff (Author)

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly
Almost everyone knows that smoking is bad. But thanks to political lobbies,
misinformation campaigns and billions of advertising dollars spent by tobacco
companies each year, it is hard to know just how bad. Psychiatrist Rabinoff goes
a long way toward clarifying the questions surrounding the number one leading
cause of preventable death in the U.S., responsible for about 450,000 deaths
here each year. Nonsmokers will likely fume over Big Tobacco's cunning
strategies for keeping people addicted—particularly children, who are tomorrow's
smokers, after all. Smokers may feel browbeaten by Rabinoff's sometimes
hyperbolic writing style. For aspiring nonsmokers, there are reasons to quit on
nearly every page, whether political (e.g., collusion between the tobacco and
pharmaceutical industries; how cigarettes are pushed to children overseas) or
scientific (how cigarettes are chemically altered to heighten addiction, and the
causality between smoking and mental illness). The evidence Rabinoff amasses is
overwhelming, making this recommended reading for anyone who wants to quit.
