A.D.D. (ADOLESCENT DEMO DIVISION) raises some interesting questions about pop entertainment, mass media, game culture, and corporate greed. Readers will be intrigued by how the author extrapolates from current trends to create a dystopian future. But the language Rushkoff invents for this futuristic setting sometimes sounds needlessly clunky and opaque.
