Unlike usual stop-smoking manuals, this collection of interviews with more than 30 former smokers has something for everyone. The stories can be a source of inspiration, hope, and helpful hints for smokers who have, like the storytellers, made repeated failed attempts to quit.--Jane Brody, New York Times.
Refreshingly unlike the usual stop-smoking manual, this collection of over 30 interviews with people who kicked the habit follows their paths to hard-won triumph in brief oral histories and commentary. . . . The strength of the book is its refusal to simplify or glorify a gritty struggle. Realistic and persuasive.
