In this interview, Stanton Peele discusses his memoir, "A Scientific Life on the Edge: My Lonely Quest to Change How We See Addiction."

More importantly, Peele recounts his life story, both in this interview and in his memoir. Beginning with his General Theory of Addiction that he put forth in his 1975 book "Love and Addiction", followed by a discussion of his career as an outsider in mainstream addiction psychology -- an outsider whose knowledge, views, and contributions can never be ignored. 

He goes on to explain how he managed to maintain an influential career in psychology and remain focused on his life-purpose, despite never being affiliated with institutions or organizations in his life.

Finally, he explains to me how and why he continues to pursue meaning, both in life and in the addiction field.
