      That was a really informative and engaging book about the neurological implications and pecularities of addiction and specific drugs The author mixes easy to follow scientific explanations with colloquial musings about her own experience with addiction, which worked really well, I think, and prevented the book from ever feeling didactive.I really recommend this for an informed, sympathetic and emphatic view on the rising tide of addiction.

      Incredibly informative and insightful investigation of addiction from the perspective of a recovering addict and neuroscientist I enjoyed Grisel s ability to put the isolation of addiction into context with social movements and the rise of capitalism Addiction is a personal, social, neuroscientific, and public health issue She wove in all of the intertwining factors beautifully and in an entertaining way Highly recommend this book to anyone as the drug crisis is urgent than ever.
