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." -- Publishers Weekly "In a fascinating and inspiring book, [the authors] give 30 former smokers a chance to share the secrets of their success. The stories can be a source of inspiration, hope, and helpful hits for smokers who have, like the storytellers, made repeated failed attempts to quit." -- Jane Brody - New York Times "If you've ever tried to quit smoking and failed, and you want to make your next puff your last one, read this book and you'll find out how to do it. These are the real life stories of a host of individuals who have made it." -- Joseph A. Califano, Jr.
