Format: Paperback
This is a superb textbook on how to do addiction research properly. Down to detailed descriptions of the proper research usage of clincial addiction assessment tools, this book does not miss any of the important nuances of doing this type of research properly. The book is not for the undergraduate student, nor the first semester graduate student however. The authors state "This book is written to cater for a wider audience, including students, academics and clinical practioners, but it is envisaged that the reader will already have some basic knowledge of research methods." I hold a PhD, and found the reading level very comfortable, whereas I am certain that if it were utilized in a Master's program, this would be the text for the second research methods course, or would be fully appropriate in an addictionology PhD program. The book is going on my shelf as a go to book when I conduct research in addiction. Impressive range of topics, impressive attention to detail. This text belongs on every addiction instructor's shelf and should be in every clinical supervisor's office.
