Summary
As a youth, Carl Hart didn't realize the value of school; he studied just enough to stay on the basketball team. At the same time, he was immersed in street life. Today he is a cutting-edge neuroscientist--Columbia University's first tenured African American professor in the sciences--whose landmark, controversial research is redefining our understanding of addiction. In this provocative memoir, he recalls his journey of self-discovery. He examines the relationship among drugs, pleasure, choice, and motivation, both in the brain and in society--From publisher description
