Are you looking for an explanation for why we do the things we do that cause us pain? Do you want to know why we get attached to self-destructive behaviors? If so, this is the book that will provide a clear, concise, and concrete explanation for the many forms of dysfunction that can occur, and occasionally overtake, our lives.
Combining western neuroscience, psychology, and anthropology with eastern and western spirituality, The Answer Model: A new path to healing, provides a biologically based explanation of the brain mechanisms that become overly-used and ultimately hijacked by an addictive process that leads pain.
All of this may sound daunting, but it is not. The Answer Model: A new path to healing, is a very well-written book, in a style that is conversational and often amusing - a style that is so engaging that I felt compelled to keep on reading. I must admit, there were several times that I found myself chuckling as I was reading.
I would definitely recommend this book to those seeking an understanding of the bases of all the emotional ills and "addictions" that we face as we go about our daily lives. Actually, I would recommend this book to everyone so that each person can develop an understanding of the many difficult and challenging issues that arise for each and every one of us.
