This is a fantastic book. Insightful, clearly written and thought provoking. It skilfully gives an overview of the current state of knowledge about addiction from multiple perspectives and provides helpful chapter summaries. Required reading for anyone interested in understanding addiction.
This book provides an excellent complement to other books on addiction. Its authors have particular expertise in biochemistry and neuropsychology and this is reflected in the book’s orientation. It covers the biological sciences in greatest detail, constantly posing questions for students and others about the challenges and limitations of present understanding.
Chandler and Andrews have written a wonderfully clear text about one of psychology's most complex topics. Chapters are well structured and outlined, with excellent examples throughout; and unlike many texts in the field, the authors embed their extensive knowledge of addiction biopsychology within treatment and social contexts.
A must-read for students and researchers wanting to explore psychological, biological and societal aspects of addiction. It provides an evidence and critical based approach to addiction, whilst combining useful and essential learning tools. The use of summaries, learning aims, and end of chapter questions further facilitates this accessible resource.
