MEDIA REVIEWS
The topic of addiction is multifaceted and complex, yet this new book is clear and refreshingly straightforward. It breathes new life and clarity into the subject from a wide range of interesting perspectives. The authors' mastery of the subject means we can feel safe in their hands as they navigate us through the area. Highly recommended to students and researchers alike! -- Angela Clow
Addiction is a truly complex phenomenon, however, Chris Chandler and Anita Andrews have managed to produce a straight forward but refreshingly informative guide to help the reader understand both what it is, and what can be done about it.

-- Robert Patton
This is a fantastic book. Insightful, clearly written and thought provoking. It skilfully gives an overview of the current state of knowledge about addiction from multiple perspectives and provides helpful chapter summaries. Required reading for anyone interested in understanding addiction. -- Dr Maria Flynn
This book provides an excellent complement to other books on addiction. Its authors have particular expertise in biochemistry and neuropsychology and this is reflected in the book's orientation. It covers the biological sciences in greatest detail, constantly posing questions for students and others about the challenges and limitations of present understanding. -- James Orford
Chandler and Andrews have written a wonderfully clear text about one of psychology's most complex topics. Chapters are well structured and outlined, with excellent examples throughout; and unlike many texts in the field, the authors embed their extensive knowledge of addiction biopsychology within treatment and social contexts. -- John Turner, Director of Research
A must-read for students and researchers wanting to explore psychological, biological and societal aspects of addiction. It provides an evidence and critical based approach to addiction, whilst combining useful and essential learning tools. The use of summaries, learning aims, and end of chapter questions further facilitates this accessible resource. -- Jenifer Coe
