In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts Book Description:

To heal addiction, you have to go back to the start... Featured on Russell Brand’s podcast Under the Skin Dr Gabor Maté is one of the world’s most revered thinkers on the psychology of addiction. His radical findings – based on decades of work with patients challenged by catastrophic drug addiction and mental illness – are reframing how we view all human development. In this award-winning modern classic, Gabor Maté takes a holistic and compassionate approach to addiction, whether to alcohol, drugs, sex, money or anything self-destructive. He presents it not as a discrete phenomenon confined to a weak-willed few, but as a continuum that runs through (and even underpins) our society; not as a medical ‘condition’, but rather the result of a complex interplay of personal history, emotional development and brain chemistry. Distilling cutting-edge research from around the world, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts avoids glib self-help remedies, instead promoting self-understanding as the first key to healing and wellness. Blending personal stories and science with positive solutions, and written in spellbinding prose, it is a must-read that will change how you see yourself, others and the world. 10th anniversary edition, updated with new chapter on the Opiod crisis

The Realm of the Hungry Ghosts Book Description:

For Sonny Moore, writer and family man, chance discovery and the force of untethered past are about to impact on his life in ways both unimaginable and profound. Faced with events he cannot explain, and those he does not even wish to contemplate, his world and the worlds of those closest to him spiral down into a realm of need and hurt, where ghosts walk - and occasionally resemble those closest to him.

Hungry Ghosts Book Description:

"The realm of hungry ghosts, or pretas, is one of the three unfortunate destinations for rebirth in the Buddhist cosmology of the cycle of existence. Those who end up there are said to have led lives consumed by greed and covetousness, and once there, they are often depicted with distended bellies and thin necks, searching for but never finding satisfaction. One of the earliest sources informing much of what we know about hungry ghosts are the ten stories about them compiled in the Avadānaśataka (the One Hundred Stories), which draws from the scriptures of the Mūlasarvastivādin sect that made their way to Tibet and beyond. These stories recount the bad thoughts and actions various hungry ghosts cultivated as humans in previous lives that led them to their current existence with its karmically customized miseries. The stories are an especially important record of early Buddhist thinking about hungry ghosts and about ethics. Depictions of the travails of hungry ghosts are found throughout the Buddhist world, and In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts reproduces many of the best examples of these. The volume also begins with a meditation on matsarya, a Sankrit word often translated as "miserliness" that figures prominently in these stories of the ravenous spirits. In the hands of Andy Rotman, we discover how its connotations of meanness and bad faith have profound resonances not only in the ancient texts but also in the malaise of today's world"--
