Excellent book detailing addiction as "not" a disease. Fact filled and accessible and also personal, as the stories of those fighting addiction provide colour for the science of addiction.

Excellent book explaining the neurology of addiction and why the author (in spite of having been an addict) does not believe addiction is a disease. He is a neurologist himself.
