Adderall Diaries

A few weeks back I got an advance copy of Stephen Elliott's new book, the Adderall Diaries. It's a memoir about his own struggles with drug addiction, mixes in his difficult childhood, his love life (which is racey - adult audience only) and a Bay Area murder and trial. I can only imagine how difficult it was to write this book. He puts it all out there.

Stephen, who founded the - an online magazine for "people who aren't challenged at work," has started an innovative book lending program in advance of release. You can get a copy for free here on the Rumpus. All you have to do is mail it to the next name and address he sends you after you are done.

The book I received was in great condition and I read it in one day, just couldn't put it down. I reccomend the book whole-heartedly but you must be ok with graphic adult content. Great read and a cool book sharing program from an author I greatly respect.
