Praise for "Hold on to Your Kids":
"Mate has expressed [Neufeld's] ideas in precise and hard-hitting prose that makes complex ideas accessible without dumbing them down. The result is a book that grabs hard."
--"Edmonton Journal"
Praise for "When the Body Says No":
"When Mate witnesses and testifies to human suffering, including his own, he is compassionate and compelling."
--"The Globe and Mail"
"Written with clarity and compassion. . . . The book's characteristics seem to describe Mate himself: armed with knowledge and straight from the heart."
--"Georgia Straight"
"[An] enthralling exploration. . . . Mate probes deeply into the life histories and psyches of [his] many patients. . . . What emerges is nothing short of a revelation."
--"Edmonton Journal"

"From the Hardcover edition."

"From the Hardcover edition."

"A harrowingly honest, compassionate, sometimes angry look at addiction and the people whose lives have been disordered by it."
--Ottawa Citizen

"Mate does a great service by forcing us to confront the us-and-them mentality that drives the get-tough responses to addiction.... I highly recommend Hungry Ghosts to everyone seeking insight into addiction."
--The Vancouver Sun

"Excellent.... One of the book's strengths is Mate's detailed and compassionate characterization of the afflicted addicts he treats, but this is not just a memoir. Rather, using his own experience as well as the most advanced recent research, he attempts to delineate the closely interrelated psychological, social, and neurological dimensions of addiction.... A calm, unjudging, compassionate attentiveness to what is happening within."
--The Walrus
