Format: Paperback
This book would be useful for students of psychology, psychotherapy or counselling. It provides you with up to date research into the physiology,as well as the psychology, of addiction. Students will like it because the references will give them other avenues to explore, health professionals will find it a useful primer. From the treatment perspective, it gives useful background information on many aspects of addictive behaviour and treatment, as well as common themes that someone suffering from addiction might raise. Like other books in this Palgrave series, it is well-presented, the material is easily accessible, yet it doesn't skimp on detail. All in all, it packs a lot in for a book its size (150 pages, 14 x 22cm).

Good undergrad introduction 22 Jun. 2014
By MindTx - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Aimed at undergradute level, this short book outlines the contributions of the classic and influential psychological theories to provide the reader with a well-balanced understanding of addiction. It woud be useful to those having not studied addiction before as well as professionals looking to refresh and reground their understanding of all the factors (biological, cognitive) involved. The author critiques several major theories that should be familiar to psychology undergraduates and demonstrates their application to the fied of addiction. The more complicated ideas are explained when introduced and demonstrates how all these theories apply equally to behavioral addictions such as gambling. Probably one of the better introductions on the field of addiction.
