1. Drugs Without The Hot Air.
Minimising the harms of legal and illegal drugs

by Professor David Nutt (2012)

David Nutt was famously sacked from his job as drugs advisor to the British Labour Government.

8. Build This Bong

The beauty of bongs is that they are such simple devices, they can be made from almost anything. Some basic tools are required, but no special skills are necessary. This book shows you how to make a variety of bongs. It also covers hookahs, which are similar to bongs but have a length of hose through which the smoke is inhaled, as well as a few pipes. The projects contained herein range from simple to elaborate, and use materials that may either be found around the house or easily obtained.

[tokemaster note: This is a brave amateur attempt at a scanner copy of the text on 52 double pages. It's quite readable, though you'd do best to look at a single page at once, with it zoomed in close. The diagrams are fine at this level of zoom, and the text a little blurred, but clear enough. So far, this is the best gratis source of the book I have found.]
