Review Quotes
Rowdy Yates, President of European Federation of Therapeutic Communities
“I’ve been waiting for a book like this. Not only does David Best clearly outline the theoretical framework that underpins his approach to addiction and recovery, he gives clear, straightforward examples of how they work in practice. This book is that rare thing; a manual for researchers and practitioners alike.”
Shadd Maruna, Queen's University Belfast
''In this remarkable new book, Best turns his considerable gifts toward developing a full-fledged sociology of "hope" - surely the most important and misunderstood concept in the fields of criminology and addiction studies. My hope is that it starts a revolution of hope studies in recovery work."
