Widespread Zombification in the 21st Century
and the Wars of the Zombie Masters:
For Kids - and the Occasional Interested Parent
by Brian Johnson, M.D.
How do you find out about addiction? If you are a kid,
you usually hear about drugs from other kids. They
don't know much, because they have just started using
drugs, or haven't used them. Parents tend to know little
about what is going on at school, and what knowledge
they have tends to be a generation out of date.
Addiction and drug use is actually a complicated area of
knowledge. Addiction can be psychological, brain changes
are absolutely biological, and drug use occurs in a certain
social context. Books for teens tend to be written by
novelists with variable knowledge of the topic.
No one has ever written a book like this. Dr. Johnson
grew up with addicted parents. He taught at Harvard
Medical School for 30 years and is now Director of
Addiction Psychiatry for the State University of New
York Upstate Medical University. He has treated 15,000
patients during detoxification. He has treated a number
of addicted patients in 4-days-per-week psychoanalysis,
including while they were drinking or injecting drugs.
Dr. Johnson has had extensive dealings with members of
the drug culture and the recovery culture.
Widespread Zombification has 21st-century neuroscience,
psychoanalysis, and social commentary packaged as a
page-turner; all written at a sixth-grade reading level.
