Review

Wonderful. I couldn't put it down (Noam Chomsky)

An absolutely stunning book. It will blow your mind, and blow you away (Elton John)

Superb journalism and thrilling story-telling (Naomi Klein)

Intoxicatingly thrilling ... It will change the drug debate forever (Russell Brand)

This book is, forgive the obvious phrase, screamingly addictive. The story it tells, jaw-droppingly horrific, hilarious and incredible, is one everyone should know: that is all true boggles the mind fascinated and infuriates by equal measure. Johann Hari, in brilliant prose, exposes one of the greatest and most harmful scandals of the past hundred years (Stephen Fry)

Johann Hari's book is the perfect antidote to the war on drugs, one of the most under-discussed moral injustices of our time. It combines rigorous research and deeply human story-telling. It will prompt an urgently-needed debate (Glenn Greenwald)

Excellent . Hari affirms the role he has already established for himself: a crucial voice in, as well as commentator on, the urgent cause of not merely "reforming" the way society deals with the drugs crisis but tearing it up completely (Observer)

The lack of evidence of the war having worked, alongside massive evidence of failure, are detailed with frightening clarity. As an expert in this field, I was impressed by the details of the historic background to the present situation . Some of the tales are so horrific as to be scarcely believable . Chasing the Scream is a remarkable book. It is moving and articulate and impossible to put down. Read it and demand our politicians take note (Evening Standard)

Hari has conducted a mass of diligently pursued research for this book, talking to seemingly everybody from poor Mexicans who have lost loved ones amid the psychotic violence of gang warfare to the recently retired president of Uruguay, José Mujica . When the arguments are put, they are powerful and meticulously considered (Stuart Walton Review)
