In this groundbreaking memoir, Stephen Elliott pursues parallel investigations: a gripping account of a notorious San Francisco murder trial, and an electric exploration of the self. Destined to be a classic, The Adderall Diaries was described by The Washington Post as "a serious literary work designed to make you see the world as you've never quite seen it before."

Great memoir and true crime story
This is the best bit of nonfiction writing I've read since Dave Egger's "Zeitoun". It's half strikingly honest memoir, and half straightforward journalism (but the best kind of journalism. The well-researched long-form journalism that you actually want to read). I just recently finished this book and am already tempted to read it again.
A Rambling Read
Although it was interesting in the beginning, I don't think I can make it past page 100... Too much rambling on and on about nothing really. I feel like saying, "okay, I get it, you're depressed and your wiring is screwed up without Adderall, but what are you going to do about it?!"
I feel like this book is going nowhere. Don't bother reading it.
Don't waste your time
Stupidest book I've ever read
