A good read about addiction yet I found it a bit whiny. I felt the book bogged down in the middle, I had a hard time finishing it or feeling much sympathy for her.

A story of Elizabeth Wurtzel's addiction to Adderall while she was trying to write her second book, "Bitch". I enjoyed "Prozac Nation" much more, but only because I could relate to it, being bipolar myself. "More, Now, Again" is a great read even if you can't relate to the addiction. Her style of writing is captivating and makes you want to read more.

Self indulgent, twelve-step pablum. Wurtzel has the opportunity to explore the intricate nature of addiction and to probe the underlying causes of her drive to consume stimulants but chooses instead to dwell on her petty insecurities. Ho hum. Maybe it's just me, but I find it hard to garner much sympathy for a beautiful, young, Harvard-educated rich girl and her self-induced problems. The writing is often terse and compelling, but it is style over substance all the way.
