Chasing the Scream : The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs
by Johann Hari




Overview -
The New York Times Bestseller
The Book Behind the Viral TED Talk

For the first time, the startling full story of the disastrous war on drugs-propelled by moving human stories, revolutionary insight into addiction, and fearless international reporting.
What 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 be able to. As he grew older, he came to the realization that he had addiction in his family. Driven to action but not knowing where to start, 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; and of the countries that ended their war on drugs-with extraordinary results.
Chasing the Scream is the story of a life-changing journey that showed the world the opposite of addiction is connection.
