The Selfish Brain: Learning From Addiction

John J. Straumanis

Published: November 30, 2000

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

This is a rather unusual book for the reader accustomed to most scientific books. It begins with 5 pages of endorsements and a foreword by Betty Ford. Then, after a brief, well-written preface that outlines the structure of the book, the author spends another 7 pages on his biography. Dr. DuPont states in the preface that this book is for therapists, counselors, and educators, which might explain the lack of references to support its many assertions, except for footnotes dealing with some of the statistical data.
