Drug Addiction Books
The index is well constructed, and boldfaced numbers quickly direct the reader to any topic’s primary entries. See and see also references are present in the body and the index. A few useful cross-references are missing. For example, someone interested in investigating an addiction to plastic surgery would have to know to turn instead to Cosmetic surgery without the directional nudge of a see reference anywhere in the book.
Nonetheless, the encyclopedia is a very user-friendly, trustworthy resource and is recommended for a wide range of readers, certainly young adult through general audiences. It is appropriate for many types of libraries, including public, high school, and undergraduate. Scottie Wallace
