Praise for Memoirs of an Addicted Brain
"An engrossing swirl of personal history, themes of loss and triumph, deftly rendered brain science, and clear thinking on the dilemma of addiction. Illuminating even to experts, accessibly written for all."
—Gabor Maté M.D., author of In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts
