THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERTHE SUBJECT OF THE VIRAL TED TALKWhat if everything you think you know about addiction is wrong? One of Johann Hari's earliest memories is of trying to wake up one of his relatives and not being able to. As he grew older, he realised he had addiction in his family. Confused, unable to know what to do, he set out on a three-year, 30,000-mile journey to discover what really causes addiction - and what really solves it. He uncovered a range of remarkable human stories - of how the war on drugs began with Billie Holiday, the great jazz singer, being stalked and killed by a racist policeman; of the scientist who discovered the surprising key to addiction; of how Britain had an extraordinary experiment with legalising drugs that was snuffed out; and of the countries that moved beyond the war on drugs - with extraordinary results.His discoveries led him to give a TED talk and animation which have now been viewed more than 25 million times. This is the story of a life-changing journey that showed the world the opposite of addiction is connection.

A wonderful book ... I hope everyone will read it
An absolutely stunning book. It will blow your mind, and blow you away
Wonderful. I couldn't put it down
This book is as intoxicatingly thrilling as crack, without destroying your teeth
This book is, forgive the obvious phrase, screamingly addictive. The story it tells, jaw-droppingly horrific, hilarious and incredible, is one everyone should know: that is all true boggles the mind fascinated and infuriates by equal measure. Johann Hari, in brilliant prose, exposes one of the greatest and most harmful scandals of the past hundred years
Breath-taking . A powerful contribution to an urgent debate
A testament to Hari's skill as a writer
Superb journalism and thrilling story-telling
One of the world's most important and most enlightening thinkers and social critics
Incredibly powerful
Amazing and bracing and smart. It's really revolutionary
