The author, who is neither a physician nor a psychologist, collected information about smoking by sending letters to a number of celebrities asking them about the smoke habit. He has collected also a good deal of data both from physicians and from medical literature on smoking and what it does to you and for you. In an appendix are some choice sentences chosen from some of the questionnaires and an abstract of replies. Some of these data are interesting. It is interesting to know that John Charles Thomas chewed tobacco, that Henry L. Mencken has 100 pipes, that Rupert Hughes smokes incessantly while awake and that most celebrities haven't the slightest idea what they like about smoking but a lot of them know what they dislike.
