9780062015891 High Price is the harrowing and inspiring memoir of neuroscientist Carl Hart, a man who grew up in one of Miamiâ€™s toughest neighborhoods and, determined to make a difference as an adult, tirelessly applies his scientific training to help save real lives. Â Young Carl didn't see the value of school, studying just enough to keep him on the basketball team. Today, he is a cutting-edge neuroscientistâ€”Columbia Universityâ€™s first tenured African American professor in the sciencesâ€”whose landmark, controversial research is redefining our understanding of addiction. In this provocative and eye-opening memoir, Dr. Carl Hart recalls his journey of self-discovery, how he escaped a life of crime and drugs and avoided becoming one of the crack addicts he now studies. Interweaving past and present, Hart goes beyond the hype as he examines the relationship between drugs and pleasure, choice, and motivation, both in the brain and in society. His findings shed new light on common ideas about race, poverty, and drugs, and explain why current policies are failing.
