Clinical Manual for Treatment of Alcoholism and Addictions is a well-organized, concise, and clearly written book that covers a vast array of topics in a tad over 250 pages. Dr Mack and coauthors have accomplished an admirable feat with their book. Specifically, this small and highly accessible paperback covers the gamut of substances of abuse, as well as behavioral addictions, such as pathological gambling and kleptomania; specific populations; and diagnostic and treatment considerations, with no need to refer to a voluminous textbook for additional details or clarification.
