Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A psychologist offers the provocative argument that addiction to drugs, gambling, alcohol, smoking or sex is not a disease but a choice of lifestyle.

Synopsis:

Written for both lay and professional readers, this book offers new approaches to understanding addiction and the public policies necessary to successfully battle its detrimental effects on society. The author explains why current policies are ineffective and how they fail to cure the "problem." He argues that they actually encourage addiction by allowing people to feel blameless for the consequences of their choices.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [147]-170) and index.
