In Constantly Craving author Marilyn Meberg tackles an issue so predominant in our modern society: the curse of always wanting, seeking, hungering for more and how this ceaseless drive can bring us to a place of always feeling shorted.
Meberg, trained in psychology, explains that craving is rooted in childhood and can be a driving force for positive ends, but can also grow beyond our control pushing us to a place of never being satiated and always feeling unhappy.
For such a worthy topic, this book falls short. I found it to be too simplistic and too laden with the author’s personal anecdotes. The text was just too flimsy for such a deep topic.
