Seeing a total solar eclipse is often described as a once-in-a-lifetime experience. However, for many who have experienced totality, once-in-a-lifetime is simply not enough. They want more, and are willing to go to great lengths often at great expense to repeat the experience. What is it like to experience totality? What is it about the experience that motivates these eclipse chasers? Is there an eclipse chaser personality? Can eclipse chasing actually be described as an addiction? This book describes the people who dedicate their lives to chasing their dream.

Psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, and other professionals involved in the treatment of substance abuse and addictive behaviors will welcome this new book as a bold and innovative approach for intervention! Using research, examples, and balanced discussion, the author describes the traditional/popular view of addiction, expounded by groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, as a disease, progressive in nature, which can never be cured but can be arrested. This book describes, analyzes, and exposes the weaknesses of the addiction concept and provides a sound rationale for an exciting and promising alternative: the lifestyle model. Focusing on behavioral changes and personal responsibility instead of helplessness and dependence, this important, alternative avenue of therapy can mean the difference between enervation and empowerment for many individuals.
