Description

In this inspiring book, the anti-smoking guru Allen Carr explains how he overcame his one-hundred-a-day habit and quit smoking for good. After many failed attempts and a lot of perseverance, he discovered the Easyway and it changed his life. But Allen Carr didn't stop there: he was convinced that his was the only effective method and opened a successful chain of clinics to allow others to escape the tobacco trap. Allen Carr has helped millions of people to break the habit but his ambitions reached further than this. He had a vision of the future in which smoking was something we used to do, and he was sure that Easyway would play a large part in this achievement long after his time had passed.show more

About Allen Carr

Allen Carr was an accountant and smoked one hundred cigarettes a day until he gave up and wrote a series of bestselling books. He built a hugely successful network of stop-smoking clinics across the world and is the author of The Only Way to Stop Smoking, How to Stop Your Child Smoking, The Easy Way to Enjoy Flying and The Easyweigh to Lose Weight. He was diagnosed with lung cancer in the summer of 2006 and died in November of the same year. It seems likely that the years he spent curing smokers in smoke-filled sessions at his clinics must have contributed to this illness, but Allen Carr remained positive; 'Given that I am informed that I have cured at least 10 million smokers on a conservative estimation, it's a price worth paying.'show more
