Golden Holocaust by Robert N. Proctor

The cigarette is the deadliest artifact in the history of human civilization.  It is also one of the most beguiling, thanks to more than a century of manipulation at the hands of tobacco industry chemists.  In Golden Holocaust, Robert N. Proctor draws on reams of formerly secret industry documents to explore how the cigarette came to be the most widely used drug on the planet, selling six trillion sticks per year.  He paints a harrowing picture of tobacco manufacturer’s conspiring to block the recognition of tobacco-cancer hazards while ensnaring legions of scientists and politicians in a web of denial. — Book Jacket

Leary Jr. was a longtime social worker when his son became an addict. Through this heart – wrenching experience, he changed his life’s path and committed to working with teens and adults with substance abuse problems. — Book Jacket
