5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for a Required Text January 30, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought it for a class, but found the book to be interesting to read despite being forced to do it, lol. The book is well organized and the information is extremely up to date. There are multiple sources of addiction referenced, from actual drugs to eating and World of Warcraft.
