This is dedicated to Travis Holappa who was kidnapped, tortured and murdered on July 25, 2004 in Northern Minnesota. This was all due to meth. I am Travis' mother and I wish to make this devastation turn into a better thing by educating and exposing the truth about meth, the dangers, and the deadly consequences it brings about to individuals and communities.

I want to do what I can to educate people about what is going on around the world with the meth problem. I want people to know about it BEFORE they even get the idea to want to try it. It is a dangerous drug and will ruin your life as well as all those who love you. I am on a mission on behalf of my only son, Travis.

Cat, A reviewer, March 15, 2005,
A friend of mine told me about this book and I ordered it the next day. This book is a great resource for anyone that it battling meth addiction, or is thinking of doing meth or knows someone on meth. I have used meth and my husband is currently addicted and we don’t speak. Even though I've tried meth I still can't completely related to his behavior. This book is the only book that really explains how meth tricks you mind and the physical and emotionally as well as the effects it has on family and friends. This is a must read. Steve Box has successfully brought an understanding of the power meth has if you have never done meth then you don’t understand. If you are trying to help someone addicted to meth or if you are thinking of trying meth then you should definitely read this.

Editorial Reviews
Book Description
A harrowing look at the personal, social, and environmental impact of America’s newest drug abuse trend.
Methamphetamine has been around for decades, but the recent surge in clandestine “cooking” labs in homes, hotel rooms, and even cars has made this toxic stimulant exceptionally affordable, accessible, and dangerous. With staggering facts and up-to-the-minute information, award-winning journalist Dirk Johnson has written the definitive book about America’s methamphetamine pandemic. Johnson examines the unprecedented physical, mental, social, and environmental destruction caused by meth use and meth production. He explains why this drug is so harmful, how it differs from other drugs, and how it has devastated individuals, families, and communities. While the facts are decidedly discouraging, Johnson describes successful national, state, and local efforts to fight meth production and prevent addiction, and shares hopeful stories from recovering meth addicts.
