I've got at least 3 books scattered around that I've been trying to finish in the last couple of months but when a copy of 'The Book Of Drugs' by Mike Doughty showed up in the mail, I was glued.

According to Mike Doughty's website:

So, I wrote a book called “The Book of Drugs.” It’s largely about drugs. There’s also a lot about the weirdness, and messed-up-ness, of life in Soul Coughing.

He's always been one of my favorite guys in  music, but this very honest book of stories endears himself even further. I very much respect his decision to leave the life of Soul Coughing behind to become a solo artist creating different music. But it sure is nice to hear the nitty gritty details on where it all came from.
