This review is from: Shopping Addiction: The Ultimate Guide for How to Overcome Compulsive Buying And Spending (Compulsive Spending, Compulsive Shopping, Retail Therapy, Shopaholic, ... Compulsive Debtors, Debtors Anonymous) (Kindle Edition)
I think it’s great that someone has written a book about shopping addiction. I have often felt like this kind of addiction has become almost socially acceptable simply because materialism is so prevalent in Western societies at the moment; it’s nice to see it recognised for what it can be.

Now that I have read a few of these books, I have gotten used to the introductions being fairly similar; once I found it slightly annoying that the author hadn’t created an original fresh intro but now that I have realised they’re all a part in a bigger series, I understand why it’s not been necessary to do so.

I like how the book looks not only at the effects of addiction and how to overcome it but that it goes into great detail on the causes of it too. That it is more than just wanting things but that it can be deeply psychologically rooted in a person - I had no idea it could be resultant from childhood issues for example!

Looking through the symptoms chapter was a little scary as I found that many of the symptoms were ones that I, or my friends, were often guilty of displaying. I wonder how close we all are to going too far and becoming addicted. Scary!

The section on how to overcome a shopping addiction has a few very simple, concrete ways to move forward from an addiction and provides a great launch pad from which to leap when trying to recover.

Overall, a fantastic e-book on a little discussed topic! Fab work. :)
