"Gabor Maté’s connections―between the intensely personal and the global, the spiritual and the medical, the psychological and the political―are bold, wise and deeply moral. He is a healer to be cherished and this exciting book arrives at just the right time" (Naomi Klein, author of No Logo and The Shock Doctrine)
"Gabor Maté is one of the most important, wise and compassionate voices in the world on addiction. Everyone should read this profound book" (Johann Hari, author of Chasing the Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs)
"I recommend this wonderful book for anyone struggling with the heartache of addiction personally or professionally. Gabor Maté makes the thought-provoking and powerful arguments that human connections heal; and that the poverty of relationships in the modern world contribute to our vulnerability to unhealthy addictions of all manner. His uniquely humane perspective―all too absent from much of the ‘modern’ approach to addictions―should be a part of the training of all therapists, social workers, and physicians" (Bruce Perry, MD, PhD, Child Trauma Academy Houston, and co-author of The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog)
"With unparalleled sympathy for the human condition, Gabor Maté depicts the suffocation of the spirit by addictive urges, and holds up a dark mirror to our society. This is a powerful narrative of the realm of human nature where confused and conflicted emotions underlie our pretensions to rational thought" (Dr Jaak Panksepp, author of Affective Neuroscience)
"In its sheer force, originality and deep scholarship, this book represents a landmark in the theory, treatment and prevention of addictive disorders. No-one seriously interested in this subject can afford not to be aware of what it says about addiction and how we should respond to it" (Nick Heather PhD, Northumbria University, UK)

PS Just realised that chapter 31 was based on Jeffrey M. Schwartz's book ''Brain Lock'' which I'm going to read next.
