Janet Maslin[Stein] loves to listen and analyze. That's what makes The Addict a gripping, illuminating book…Lucy's story alone would not be enough to make The Addict a compelling book. It's the doctor's story that leaps out, and his reluctance to reveal much about himself only serves to make him more intriguing…Dr. Stein has written one other nonfiction book, The Lonely Patient, in which his empathy for the terminally ill and description of what goes on inside his white coat came through. This time, even more hauntingly and successfully, he lets readers make a doctor's experiences their own.
