Today’s book aims to unpack the neuroscience of reward and, in so doing, enable us to find a better, healthier balance between pleasure and pain. But neuroscience is not enough. We also need the lived experience of human beings. Who better to teach us how to overcome compulsive overconsumption than those most vulnerable to it: people with addiction. Whether it’s sugar or shopping, voyeuring or vaping, social media posts or The Washington Post, we all engage in behaviours we wish we didn’t, or to an extent we regret.
This book offers practical solutions for how to manage compulsive overconsumption in a world where consumption has become the all-encompassing motive of our lives.”
