In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction

4.51 (12,819 ratings by Goodreads)


By (author): Dr Gabor Mate Gabor Maté

To heal addiction, you have to go back to the start

Featured on Russell Brands podcast Under the Skin

Dr Gabor Maté is one of the worlds most revered thinkers on the psychology of addiction. His radical findings based on decades of work with patients challenged by catastrophic drug addiction and mental illness are reframing how we view all human development.

In this award-winning modern classic, Gabor Maté takes a holistic and compassionate approach to addiction, whether to alcohol, drugs, sex, money or anything self-destructive. He presents it not as a discrete phenomenon confined to a weak-willed few, but as a continuum that runs through (and even underpins) our society; not as a medical condition, but rather the result of a complex interplay of personal history, emotional development and brain chemistry.

Distilling cutting-edge research from around the world, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts avoids glib self-help remedies, instead promoting self-understanding as the first key to healing and wellness. Blending personal stories and science with positive solutions, and written in spellbinding prose, it is a must-read that will change how you see yourself, others and the world.

10th anniversary edition, updated with new chapter on the Opiod crisis
