In Capture, Dr. David A. Kessler considers some of the most profound questions we face as human beings: Why do we think and act in ways that are detrimental to our wellbeing? What is the origin of emotional anguish? Is it possible that addiction, depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder are manifestations of the same biological mechanism? Informed by the latest research in psychology and neuroscience, Dr. Kessler examines how our minds become "captured," or taken hostage by a physiological process that feels beyond our control. The closer we can come to comprehending the nature of capture, Dr. Kessler argues, the better chance we have to alleviate its deleterious effects.

"Sean Pratt's cool and relaxed voice makes Kessler's prose less anxiety-inducing to listen to, given how scary this book can be. Kessler explores the process of becoming entranced by or fixated on certain things such as food, drugs, and other addictions. He highlights the ways that people learn to cope, redirect, or find replacements for their addictions in both positive and negative ways. Pratt moves through the book with a calm and inviting voice that still provides emphasis and good pacing. His delivery makes listeners feel as if he's right there in the room with them. His hypnotic, rhythmic narration could be another form of "capture"--this one for listeners. L.E. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
