Andrew K. Smith’s hooligan pranks and social impulsiveness paints a picture of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) before medication, and it would seem that the little orange pills could cure his mischief. But readers will furrow their brows as they enter The Adderall Empire, traveling with Andrew K. Smith through the chemically conflicting mind states. Is working-memory training a feasible alternative? Readers will beg for the answer, hoping Andrew stops getting into trouble before his parents disown him or he winds up in jail. Again.

I've lost friends to Adderall. It took away their humanity. It's close to being prescription meth, literally a combination of four different amphetamines.
I have seen no one who took it every day who I thought it helped in the long run. But if I ever tactfully suggested that it might be worth reminding themselves what life was like without it for a while, without fail I would practically get my head bitten off.
It's dangerous for a drug so powerful, so addictive, so easily abused, and so likely to change someone's personality to be handed out like candy.
