'Harvey B. Milkman and Stanley Sunderwirth have written a tour de force. "Craving for Ecstasy and Natural Highs: A Positive Approach to Mood Alteration"...is a beautifully written and organized book...a thrill ride through the most innovative and insightful perspectives that science and clinical experience have to offer...hip and artistic, reflecting a deep understanding of addiction ...a major contribution to the field; it is must reading' - Howard J. Shaffer, PhD, CAS Editor, "Psychology of Addictive Behaviors", Associate Professor, Harvard Medical School Director, Division on Addictions, Cambridge Health Alliance. 'Reading this book is in itself and ecstatic experience...a fascinating journey that explores the benefits and risks of pleasure and the universal desire to feel good...It's quite a trip' - G. Alan Marlatt, PhD, University of Washington. People from all walks of life often lose themselves in pursuing counterfeit pleasures - cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, thrill seeking, sex, food, gambling, and on-line fantasies to name just a few. How does the pursuit of pleasure result in compulsion and loss of control? "Craving for Ecstasy and Natural Highs" addresses this fundamental question and then explores positive ways to achieve lasting happiness and fulfillment. Readers will gain important insight on how to improve their own quality of life and will learn how to offer support to clients, students, family, and friends whose lives may be compromised by hedonic dependencies. Students of addictive behaviors and anyone interested in discovering healthy means to satisfy the drive to alter consciousness will find this book compelling. Reviews of previous work: 'The chemistry and psychology of addiction are described with considerable insight...These authors know their stuff and make a compelling case' - "The Los Angeles Times". 'The authors provide a valuable service by placing into perspective a large array of behaviors that could be considered addictive' - "JAMA".
