"Substance abuse is a complex topic, but Lahey separates myth from reality in this deeply researched resource for parents and educators. As a therapist, I know I will be recommending her book to many families for years to come."--Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk To Someone
"The Addiction Inoculation is a vital look into best practices parenting. Writing as a teacher, a mother, and, as it happens, a recovering alcoholic, Lahey's stance is so compassionate, her advice so smart, any and all parents will benefit from her hard-won wisdom." --Peggy Orenstein, author of Girls & Sex and Boys & Sex

But thanks to Jessica Lahey's wit, compassion, and beautiful writing, reading it feels like having those conversations with your most entertaining friend who also happens to be an expert in substance abuse research, education, and child development."--David Epstein, author of Range and The Sports Gene
