I have a short list of books that I recommend that have changed my worldview. First and foremost on that list is Bruce Alexander's _The Globalization Of Addiction_:

If you've got the bug, that book is not going to help you. It'll just tell you how screwed you are. If you don't have the bug, I think that book might help you understand the problem.

The author of that study (Bruce Alexander) wrote an incredibly in-depth book about the relationship between environment and addiction. It covers not just drug addictions, but also other addictions such as overeating and excessive consumerism.
