Addict Nation: An Intervention for America by Jane Velez-Mitchell, Sandra Mohr

Americans are being lured into addiction. And what were hooked on isnt necessarily illegal or even hard to come by. Prescription medications are making us high. Fast food is making us fat. The Internet keeps us constantly distracted with everything from gambling and porn to compulsive social networking. Television bombards us with glamorized violence. From billboards, to online pop ups, to commercials. . . were seduced into buying more stuff we dont need while we drown in growing debt. Massive profits fill the pockets of a handful of pushers at the expense of everyone else. Corporations, government, and the media are creating the illusion that the more we have, the better we are, and so we crave whatever theyre selling and become addicted to their products in the process. Americans are being seduced into self-destructivebehavior on a mass scale. Its time to take our power back. In her trademark no-holds-barred style, Jane Velez-Mitchell asks, Do you really want to be a slave, existing just to make someone else rich and powerful? If the answer is no, then read this book. Addict Nation is our blueprint for change, but first we must see what is really going on. This in an intervention.
