Product Overview

In a book sure to inspire controversy, Gene Heyman argues that conventional wisdom about addiction?that it is a disease, a compulsion beyond conscious control?is wrong. At the heart of Heyman?s analysis is a startling view of choice and motivation that applies to all choices, not just the choice to use drugs. Heyman?s analysis of well-established but frequently ignored research leads to unexpected insights into how we make choices?from obesity to McMansionization?all rooted in our deep-seated tendency to consume too much of whatever we like best.
