Review

“This masterful, personal, friendly, compelling, humorous, and erudite book offers us a radically new perspective on learning, on breaking habits of mind not by force or through the application of will power or the desire for a reward, but by truly inhabiting the domain of being.—Jon Kabat-Zinn, from the Foreword
“Accessible and enjoyable. The Craving Mind brilliantly combines the latest science with universal real-life experiences.—Arianna Huffington
“Entertaining and profound, Judson Brewer's book brings our everyday addictions into clear view, helping us see how we get caught up in our habits, and giving us simple, grounded steps that we can take to overcome them. Wisdom infuses his research as he offers us a path of exploration to better our lives.—Jewel, Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, and author
 
“The core perception that 'something is missing' drives us to addiction and deprives us of the chance to live fully. By bringing together cutting-edge Western science, the radical insights of Buddhist psychology, and mindfulness practices, Judson Brewer offers a direct pathway to freeing our minds from the domination of craving.—Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge
 
The Craving Mind is a remarkable book, one that will help free us from the powerful habits of craving and addiction. Brewer lays out a practical and empirically based pathway to greater freedom and ease in our lives. For many readers, this book will be life-transforming.—Joseph Goldstein, author of Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Awakening
 
"As Co-Chair of the Congressional Addiction, Treatment, and Recovery Caucus, I've seen first hand the need for action on addiction and substance abuse. I am thrilled that Judson Brewer has taken his extensive research on mindfulness and outlined its benefits for those battling this terrible disease. This book couldn't come at a time of greater need."— U.S. Representative Tim Ryan, Ohio, author of A Mindful Nation
 
“Judson Brewer's revolutionary approach challenges all of us to look again and really see what gets us stuck in self-destructive habits, and how we can, at last, free ourselves from them.—Mark Williams, University of Oxford
 

Product Description

A leading neuroscientist and pioneer in the study of mindfulness explains why addictions are so tenacious and how we can learn to conquer them

We are all vulnerable to addiction. Whether it’s a compulsion to constantly check social media, binge eating, smoking, excessive drinking, or any other behaviors, we may find ourselves uncontrollably repeating. Why are bad habits so hard to overcome? Is there a key to conquering the cravings we know are unhealthy for us?
 
This book provides groundbreaking answers to the most important questions about addiction. Dr. Judson Brewer, a psychiatrist and neuroscientist who has studied the science of addictions for twenty years, reveals how we can tap into the very processes that encourage addictive behaviors in order to step out of them. He describes the mechanisms of habit and addiction formation, then explains how the practice of mindfulness can interrupt these habits. Weaving together patient stories, his own experience with mindfulness practice, and current scientific findings from his own lab and others, Dr. Brewer offers a path for moving beyond our cravings, reducing stress, and ultimately living a fuller life.
