    This book is out of print published in 1992 if you start tring to find copies online you will find just a few sources at lower prices and I have seen some online prices as high as $183 and yes that is for the paperback edition. Not trying to defend the prices being charged for copies of this book which is keeping me from getting a copy right now but wanted to point out Amazon or should we say it's used book partners aren't ripping people off jsut charging what seems to be a going rate. The only really cheaper price I found was listed for a reseller that only had a two out five star rating at the site linking to it.Oh I gave the book a three star rating since as I stated I don't have a copy but felt the need to point out why the pice is much higher than the cover amount.

    Buy this book if you are a compulsive shopper. Yes, that seems to be a contradiction. However, it has two purposes -- it not only gets you a good book on the subject, it gets you started on the road of seeing where your values are and only buying things that will really benefit you.The book is easy to read and in small chunks so that it can be read in small increments of time. The only problem I found was that the words are too close to the edges of the page so that it makes it hard to hold in one hand without covering up the text.For the impatient reader, I suggest reading chapter 1 ("The Smiled-Upon Addiction") followed by chapter 7 ("Anxiety and Stress Relief"). Chapters 8 ("Alternatives to Shopping: From A to Z") and 9 ("Fighting Back") are optional but worth skimming. Some chapters, like chapter 5 ("Keeping Track of Shopping Behaviors), chapter 6 ("Learning from Your Shopping Record") and chapter 10 ("Taking Control of Your Finances"), may be old-hat to those of us that have been in this predicament for a while. So, if it will keep you from recovery, skip those for now.Since there are few good books on how to overcome similar problems, this is a good book.

    It is so important to shed light on this subject. Shopping addiction is like any other addiction, and people need guidance on the subject. I read something about this on another website, which spells out which kind of shopping addict you might be and why this problem comes about. Helpful for anyone who wants to learn more - [...]
