Reviews

“The book presents theoretical models to help explain internet addiction, provides therapeutic interventions, and examines public policy issues. … The intended audience is practitioners, scientists, and students. … The book is very readable and contains colorful figures and tables, which lend clarity. It includes an appendix with neuroanatomical pictures and a brief glossary of terms. This book is good at presenting research findings underlying internet addiction while providing both theoretical models and therapeutic interventions.” (Gary B. Kaniuk, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2017)
