- Publishers Weekly
A SOLID book. It’s filled with good science, which I find both illuminating and reassuring. It’s filled with concrete, positive suggestions for addressing the issues of craving. It’s also compassionate at its core. It’s like, Give yourself a break. There are reasons you do this stuff, and it’s not your fault, but it’s not helping you, so here are some good tools that can give you a way out.”
This book will help addiction professionals be better able to explain cravings and addiction to patients. Anyone who has ever tried to squelch a craving unsuccessfully by willpower alone will be interested in this book.”
