"In summary, Stress and Addiction: Biological and Psychological Mechanisms is a useful book that provides an overview of the research on stress and addiction in a concise format that motivated readers can use as a starting point to track down more in-depth information in diverse areas. It works best as a reference resource. The writers of the individual chapters are knowledgeable and present research findings clearly. ... The book provides a balanced view in terms of presenting conflicting research findings, and it discusses limitations of instruments and study designs. This book achieves its goal of bringing together biological and psychological findings on the overlap of stress and addiction." --Michael Weaver, Virginia Commonwealth University, in SRNT (Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco) Newsletter May / June 2007, Volume 13, Number 2
