I hate to rain on everybody's parade, but this book did not live up to the praise it received in other reviews. There are really only 90 pages of text. The rest of the book is footnotes repeated in the bibliography, a list of treatment agencies, and a glossary. The writing is often repititious or uninformative, with statements like "Ecstasy has, indeed, been the 'drug of choice' for many years now." The frequent use of quotation marks grows incredibly annoying-- like getting elbowed in the ribs after every point. The saddest part is, this is still probably the best book available on the topic.

For several years now, the buzz about Ecstasy and its scientific name MDMA has grown significantly from the confines of the medical community, through the halls of the DEA, and to providing the fuel for raves all over the world. Now poised to be exposed to the general public, there's no better time than for everyone who might encounter it to educate themselves. For those who really want to know what's up, there's no better source than Richard S. Cohen's The Love Drug: Marching to the Beat of Ecstasy. When the first raves were being held in England in the latter half of the 80's, rapid pill-popping ensued. When this resurgence was detected in America, it was swiftly banned and has been ever since. Despite the legalities, Ecstasy (a.k.a. X, beans, rolls) continues to be bought, sold, and consumed by an ever-growing number of people. While exact experiences quoted in The Love Drug vary, the overall response to the drug are positive. It is not to be confused or compared with any other drug, most notably other rave-friendly chemicals such as GHB, Rophynol, or LSD. Cohen breaks down Ecstasy from all aspects, providing readers with a thorough journey of a drug that few people have a full understanding of, if even that. Undoubtedly, The Love Drug is a straightforward, no-nonsense presentation. While other media coverage regarding the drug in the past have leaned towards advocating its use (such as in the books E Is For Ecstasy and The Pursuit of Ecstasy), or providing misleading warnings (various news articles, including a dreadful story on 20/20 aired three years ago), Cohen does neither. He keeps an amazing neutrality on the issue from start to finish, replacing influential propaganda with hard facts, countless passages from various medical journals, and extensive quotes from those who have tried it. This is all managed without the slightest sway of personal opinion, a feat that is difficult to achieve for such a debatable topic. The accessibility of The Love Drug allows anyone with an interest in Ecstasy to take a look. Whether it be a desire to try it or just a simple curiosity to learn about it, Cohen has established a middle ground that will hopefully become the standard when addressing any drug-related issues. Like any complex subject in our culture, the only way of getting a fair understanding of it is to be able to look at it from an objective point of view, something Cohen has accomplished in The Love Drug, leaving the personal decisions where they belong... to the reader.

A truly informative overview of MDMA, the compound we refer to here in England as 'E'. The author neatly portrays all of the cognitive, behavioural, and other pressing clinical issues surrounding ecstasy. The facts are intriguing, at times shocking. The user-quotes are entertaining, yet accurately depict the use of ecstasy in recreational arenas. The adverse effects attributed to E are striking, alarming, and cause for some panic. Certainly a must read for researchers, E users, behaviourists, & psychotherapeutic clinicians. The book is easy reading, presenting purely factual information.

I have been hearing about the drug, Ecstasy, in the news lately. It has been described by some as being a "medical miracle", and by others as "potentially deadly". I decided to find out about this drug and further my knowledge with regard to the behind-the-scenes of what's going on surrounding this substance. I ordered a copy of "The Love Drug", by Richard Cohen. I found the book to be to be incredibly informative. I found myself learning more and more tid bits about the drug as I turned every next page. I was surprised to see that this drug Ecstasy was once actually legal, and actually patented in the early part of the twentieth century. I was intrigued by the legal testimony surrounding Ecstasy, which the author describes in detail. The book also discusses the connection between rave or circuit parties and MDMA. It's obvious, as the author portrays, that this drug is much more than a passing fad. I recommend this book highly to those wishing to further their familiarity with this rather fascinating compound. The chapter concerning adverse reactions will raise a few eye brows of those who use.

The Love Drug mirrors a lot of what we have been recently hearing via the mass media. This book tightens it up dramatically. What other books spend chapters to report, this book says it succinctly and intelligently. I particularly liked this about 'The Love Drug'. I will say this, The Love Drug is definitely a balanced and well written book. The book describes the pros and cons of MDMA utilization within both recreational and professional fields. I expected the author to report more information on the benefits of MDMA in psychiatric settings, including marriage counseling. But, the author may have limited reporting on this partially due to the fact that such benefits have not yet been scientifically substantiated. Go ahead and by the book. It has great medical information on the beneficial and adverse effects of MDMA in humans. It also doesn't condemn MDMA - in fact, the book dedicates several pages to the mixed messages our culture sends out. It is a very neutral text. It is an interesting read, nonetheless, for people interested in find out all about this very enticing compound, Ecstasy.
