Review By Stephen Mathis on February 14, 2015 Verified Purchase Pricey, but well worth it. One of THE best (if not the best) book on this topic I've ever experienced in my 30+ years of working in the field. It' scientific, yet accessible to the public as well. It's everything I remember experiencing in graduate school and a whole lot more! The web-enhanced aspects add to the experience. Great job Dr. Inaba!!!!!!! --Stephen Mathis By Jessica Strawser on December 29, 2014 Verified Purchase A few friends recommended this book as prep for state licensure as an addiction counselor. So far, it is the most concise, easily readable text on addiction I have read, and studying for licensure there have been hundreds. I highly recommend this book for anyone in the addiction field, or counselors that need more help with co-occurring addictions disorders. I was very impressed with the level of state-of-art information contained in this edition. --Jessica Strawser By Elizabeth Brandon on December 2, 2014 Verified Purchase This book is filled with information, yet the authors have a sense of humor. They also are willing to look at the reality of the psychology field today, rather than be sidetracked by political points of view. I am enjoying the book. --Elizabeth Brandon About the Author Darryl S. Inaba, Pharm.D., CADCIII, is recognized as one of the foremost authorities on drugs and addictions.
