"I highly recommend this book for the busy clinician. In brief fashion, it explores a wide range of issues in the field of smoking and nicotine. It also offers encouragement as well as practical advice for the treatment of this much ignored but important medical condition."-- "Journal of Clinical Psychiatry", "June 2001"
"Nicotine and its cholinergic receptors in the brain are under increasing scrutiny as keys to the mechanism of a surprising number of psychiatric illnesses. This book offers its readers a comprehensive view of the role of nicotine in depression, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, schizophrenia, Tourette's syndrome, attention deficit disorder, and tobacco abuse. Many of the authors are noteworthy, as being among the first to recognize the relevance of nicotine abuse to the pathophysiology of these illnesses."-- "Robert Freedman, M.D., Professor, Departments of Psychiatry and Pharmacology, University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Denver, Colorado"
"The editors have assembled reviews by many of the most prestigious authorities on nicotine and nicotine addiction into a single volume. This book is comprehensive ranging from basic neurobiology to the possible therapeutic role of nicotine in human ailments. Chapters cover the potential of both behavioral and drug treatments to aid in smoking cessation. This up to the moment review will be informative to both novice and expert alike."-- "Alexander H. Glassman, M.D., Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, College of Physicians & Surgeons, Columbia University, New York, New York"
