So beautifully written & read, what a powerful book! I've read a lot of books about addiction but none have given the insight that Dr Mate offers from his experience, research & knowledge. Our shared humanity & frailty is the insight from this book that I will always try to remember. This book is a gift for us all. Thank you Dr Mate.

This is one of my favourite audiobooks, I listen to it every couple of months. It is well narrated, and Nicholas Bell's reading is very engaging. It does what it says on the tin - it is a very basic introduction to Buddhism by way of the author's own very interesting introduction to it and thereafter lifelong interest and learning. I think I enjoy it because his story is uplifting & most of it easy to relate to. It is very much written for the ordinary working non-spritual person. I hope others enjoy it as much as I did.
