Fascinating and provocative,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Fix (Hardcover)A powerful and provocative book which argues that addictive behaviour is permeating down through society, with the same reward mechanisms that give you a hit from cocaine or heroin being seen in the way we approach food, alcohol, porn or online gambling and gaming. Thompson spreads his net wide, drawing on his own personal experiences and those of his friends and contacts to make his case - and, in passing, to tackle the multi-billion-pound addiction lobby head-on. Worth reading if you've ever felt that you weren't quite in control of your own behaviour - or want to find out just how many aren't fully in control of theirs.
