Annotation
Sheff triumphed with Beautiful Boy, a No. 1 New York Times best seller and Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers award winner that probed his son Nics drug addiction. Here he addresses not just the addicted but family, friends, educators, and policymakers to suggest a new way of confronting both drug addiction and prevention, drawing on up-to-date research and his own experiences. The premise? Science, not shame, crossed fingers, or prayer, will make the difference. With a ten-city tour; indisputably important.
