We are all vulnerable to addiction. Whether it's a compulsion to constantly check social media, binge eating, smoking, excessive drinking, or any other behaviors, we may find ourselves uncontrollably repeating. Why are bad habits so hard to overcome? Is there a key to conquering the cravings we know are unhealthy for us?
This book provides groundbreaking answers to the most important questions about addiction. Dr. Judson Brewer, a psychiatrist and neuroscientist who has studied the science of addictions for 20 years, reveals how we can tap into the very processes that encourage addictive behaviors in order to step out of them. He describes the mechanisms of habit and addiction formation, then explains how the practice of mindfulness can interrupt these habits.
Weaving together patient stories, his own experience with mindfulness practice, and current scientific findings from his own lab and others, Dr. Brewer offers a path for moving beyond our cravings, reducing stress, and ultimately living a fuller life.

"Hear the reason why mindfulness works"
Yes its an interesting listen and I don't think anyone can get all the points it brings up with just one time through
I think is a quick guide of how había are generated, but I don't like how is the story telling don't began with the huge idea and the attention could be lose; the content is only about behavior and I was expecting to know more about how biology works with in craving
"Excellent content, narrator hindered my enjoyment"
No. I feel the narrator did not capture the proper tone of the author. I would recommend the written book instead. The narrator was too unnatural in his tone and delivery.
"Uncanny valley narration"
I am pretty certain this was read by a robot. Don't know if it's a good book or not because I can't get past the unsettling voice.
"Hard to listen to"
This would have been better if the author had read it himself! Good content hard to listen to.
