Sigmund Freud’s Cocaine Years

This New York Times review by Sherwin Nuland of Howard Markel's book titled  AN ANATOMY OF ADDICTION: Sigmund Freud, William Halsted, and the Miracle Drug Cocaine  sound as though Markel's book manages to treat the cocaine addiction of two famous people with both clinical and historical intelligence -- a remarkable achievement. I look forward to reading the book.
