Brian/OSU Haustein does a very good job of convincing his audience that tobacco use is dangerous in this book, by using statistics from research. His research is convincing because he not only uses his research, but he also uses the research of other accredited professionals. An example of this is when he writes that in Germany over 17 million people smoke, 300 people die each day from the direct consequences of smoking. (18) An example of Haustein quoting another professional can be found in his book when he states "that according to the Rochester Coronary Heart Disease Project, the study conducted in 40 to 59 year old women, cigarette smoking increases the risk for coronary heart disease or sudden cardiac death." It is examples like these that help strengthen his argument. I would say that this is the greatest strength of Haustein's book. Haustein does a very good job of sticking to the research subject and not giving his own opinion. In a book written to convey to the reader the negative affects of smoking. It is important that he does use these facts instead of his own opinion because it strengthens his argument and helps to make his argument more believable. I enjoyed reading this book, and I would recommend it to any person interested in the effects of tobacco use.
