Corrections V – posted February 8th 2015

On page 183, I state that menthol cigarettes are less addictive than tobacco cigarettes. Ben Richards got in touch to let me know this is based on outdated science, and this claim is now strongly scientifically contested and may well be wrong – indeed, the US Food and Drug Administration says research suggests they are significantly more addictive.  I will remove this line from future editions. Thanks to Ben for pointing this out.
