  • Barnes does a masterful job describing the science behind this complex chronic disease, as well as putting a human face on it through the lives of her patients. . . . [She] has done a remarkable job describing the science and art of addiction medicine. Hijacked Brains should be mandatory reading for medical students and primary care residents.
