Opium and its many offspring, including morphine, heroin, and chemically created concoctions like OxyContin, have seduced, enchanted, enthralled, and destroyed millions. The authors pull opium up by its roots, revealing that its centuries-long potency, allure, and potential for healing have repeatedly been dwarfed by its addictive power of destruction. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
