The New York Times Bestseller
What if everything you think you know about addiction is wrong? Johann Hari's journey into the heart of the war on drugs led him to ask this question--and to write the book that gave rise to his viral TED talk, viewed more than 62 million times, and inspired the feature film The United States vs. Billie Holiday and the documentary series The Fix.
One of Johann Hari's earliest memories is of trying to wake up one of his relatives and not being able to. As he grew older, he realized he had addiction in his family. Confused, not knowing what to do, he set out and traveled over 30,000 miles over three years to discover what really causes addiction--and what really solves it.
He uncovered a range of remarkable human stories--of how the war on drugs began with Billie Holiday, the great jazz singer, being stalked and killed by a racist policeman; of the scientist who discovered the surprising key to addiction; and of the countries that ended their own war on drugs--with extraordinary results.
Chasing the Scream is the story of a life-changing journey that transformed the addiction debate internationally--and showed the world that the opposite of addiction is connection.

Thought-provoking and 'against the grain' of how we are naturally lead to opine about drug dealers, users, drug enforcement, and policy. I thoroughly enjoyed the book in the most meaningful way possible. I don't think I thought badly or negatively of those affected by addiction, but I will admit that I felt swayed by the biases of the media. I cannot count how many people I have reiterated the experiment of 'Rat Park' to people, or the tragic stories told by victims themselves. Listen to the podcast and read the book!
Reading this stirred up a huge amount of anger as I realised that almost everything I'd been taught about drugs and addiction was wrong and causing genuine pain and suffering in the world, and this was all motivated more or less by the prejudice of one man. It brings home how the history of modern drug policy in the world is a litany of knee-jerk reactions and misinformed decision making, often motivated by blind hatred and a criminal lack of understanding.
This is a book that I think everyone should read. The world would be a better place if we had a greater understanding of this subject.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone seeking a detailed historical account of the War On Drugs.
