In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction

Used book in Good Condition. The mix of personal stories—including the author’s candid discussion of his own "high-status" addictive tendencies—and science with positive solutions makes the book equally useful for lay readers and professionals.
