    Best-selling writer and physician Gabor Maté looks at the epidemic of addictions in our society, tells us why we are so prone to them, and details what is needed to liberate ourselves. Starting with a close view of his drug-addicted patients, Dr. Maté looks at his own history of compulsive behavior, weaving a story of real people who struggle with addiction with the latest research on addiction and the brain. In a bold synthesis of clinical experience, insight and cutting edge scientific findings, Dr. Maté sheds light on this most puzzling of human frailties.

    Story

    While the book talks about addiction, it is so much more than that. The book covers brain chemistry, early childhood development, and basic human compassion. The best book I've ever bought on audible. It is now in my top 3 books of all time.

    Barbara Demick's Nothing to Envy follows the lives of six North Koreans over fifteen years - a chaotic period that saw the death of Kim Il-sung and the unchallenged rise to power of his son, Kim Jong-il, and the devastation of a far-ranging famine that killed one-fifth of the population. Taking us into a landscape never before seen, Demick brings to life what it means to be an average Korean citizen, living under the most repressive totalitarian regime today.

    Story

    This book flew by and I was disappointed when it ended. It informed me about a culture that I knew nothing of. One very interesting historical fact that Barbara Demick points out is that centuries ago Korean women had to wear a type of clothing more conservative than a burka. Amazing. Very well written and truly fascinating.
