In 2000, Professor Stone authored a book for lay audiences on the mechanisms by which drugs act. The book, entitled Pills, Potions and Poisons, covered the treatment of many medical disorders, explaining basic aspects of disease and the ways in which drugs could be used for treatment. A  key feature of the book was relating how many currently used drugs were originally discovered or derived from earlier, sometimes accidental, observations. The book was co-written with clinician Dr L. Gail Darlington.
