“Whatever short-lived pleasure it may provide, there is now no doubt that the use of tobacco is a cause of much disease and misery. The most effective way of persuading people to modify their behavior and give up bad habits such as smoking is to make them aware of the dangers involved. This book will surely go a long way towards doing this.”
—Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama

"This wonderful book, Ending The Tobacco Holocaust, is an excellent 'must read' for everyone - for the smokers who want to quit their tobacco addiction, for the nonsmokers who want to do something to protect themselves from the sicknesses, diseases and deaths caused by second hand tobacco smoke, and for the smokers and nonsmokers to work together in a comprehensive and intelligent way to stop this world wide tobacco genocide."
—Patty Young, the flight attendant who started the movement for smoke-free airlines. Patty Young serves on the Board of Trustees of the Flight Attendant Medical Research Institute (http://www.famri.org).
"We hardly need another reason to quit, or stay off, cigarettes, but this meticulously researched book provides many: from an exposé of the way cigarettes are pushed to children overseas, to the causality between smoking and mental illness."
—AARP The Magazine, (http://www.aarpmagazine.org/books/books_for_grownups_june07.html).
"The Tobacco Holocaust is vividly and objectively portrayed in this excellent book. It is a must read for understanding the world-wide devastation caused by smoking".

"This powerful book talks preventive health in a major way. Ending the Tobacco Holocaust takes the most comprehensive look at one of the leading causes of death in America. Inside you find not only the historical, political and spiritual perspectives to this complex issue but the motivation to make healthy changes for you and your loved ones. This message has the potential to dramatically change the health of this world."
—Neal Barnard, M.D., President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (http://www.prcm.org).
"This book, ENDING THE TOBACCO HOLOCAUST, addresses very forcefully the greatest single threat to human health world wide. The term HOLOCAUST is appropriate as the author points out, because the manufacturers were aware of the dangers that their products presented but went on with their sales for the huge profits they gained. If this book prevents a single person from smoking, then using a term from the Jewish Haggadah, Dayenu, that would be sufficient."
—Rabbi Joshua Stampfer, Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation Neveh Shalom, and creator or the driving force behind the creation of many important Jewish organizations and institutions, including Camp Solomon Schechter, the Oregon Holocaust Resource Center, the Oregon Jewish Museum, the Institute for Judaic Studies, and the Institute for Crypto-Judaic Studies.
