Formatted abstract
Tom Babor and colleagues do for illicit drugs what Alcohol Policy and the Public Good did for alcohol policy: they provide government policy makers with evidence-informed advice on the probable consequences of adopting different policies towards the prevention and amelioration of illicit drug-related harm. This is an important collaborative effort by an impressive assembly of international researchers with expertise in the major disciplines relevant to drug policy.

Anyone who is interested in evidence-informed drug policies should read this book. Those without the time to read books have been relieved of the necessity by the excellent précis published in this issue of the journal.
