Comments & Reviews on Attention Deficit Democracy:

"A lively attack on politicians, voters and government. Bovard's indictment of an ineffective but ever-expanding federal government would make any libertarian proud." Ari Melber, New York Post

"Bovard is a partisan of neither major party, only of liberty... Bovard has done his research and nailed the case against the administration, whose officials, all the way to the top, clearly authorized... torture... The American people must start paying attention, and thus start being more outraged. Reading Attention Deficit Democracy is a perfect place to start." Anthony Gregory, Freedom Daily

"Our modern-day Thomas Paine has done it again. In Attention Deficit Democracy, Bovard bombards us with the same high level of unfettered ‘Common Sense' perspective on freedom that we've come to expect from him." Joe Fondren, WRJM, Alabama radio

"Bovard explains how supposedly free citizens have bought into the lies and frauds offered by the political class.... Bovard offers wise counsel and sage advice. But if he is right, the voters will be sure to ignore it." Steve Greenhut, Orange County Register

"It is fantastic. I could not stop thinking about it. It is the unheard truth behind whatis happening in the United States." Liz Skrobiszewski, WRIR Richmond, Virginia.

"It‘s a wonderful book. It is really thought provoking. Anyone who wants to think out there is in for a treat with this book." Bill Borst, WGNU Radio St. Louis

"Bovard is an an iconoclast's iconoclast. While much of the western world unquestioningly accepts democracy's pretense... Bovard not only questions those pretenses, he proves them false.... Bovard yanks the curtain off the voting booth." Becky Akers, Counterpunch

"Playing fast and loose.... Bombthrower... A grating tone... Overheated.... Shopworn dissident rhetoric... Character assassinations... Such smearing is all in a day's work for Mr. Bovard...." Washington Times

"Attention Deficit Democracy is Bovard's best book. You can open up this book anywhere, start reading, and every paragraph will smack you upside the head. For those concerned about the future of our Republic, ADD is as compelling as the most intruiging novel. Unfortuntely, it is not fiction." Brian Wilson, WSPD Toledo

"Spectacular... Attention Deficit Democracy displays Bovard's emergence as a formidable prose stylist. Relentlessly incisive and epigrammatic, Bovard at his best reminds me of Nock and Mencken. And in the course of nearly 300 pages, he very rarely - if ever - descends from that exalted level." Will Grigg, Editor in Chief, New American

"In his latest book, Bovard has put his literary finger on one of the critical factors that will determine not just how, but if America is to survive as a nation bearing a semblance of similarity to that envisioned by our Founding Fathers. Attention Deficit Democracy warns us in no uncertain terms that unless we reverse the accelerating trend toward a country populated by a people largely ignorant of history, civics, and politics, we will wake up one day - soon- and find we have no freedom left; because we didn't even recognize it when we had it." Former Rep. Bob Barr

"Bovard is one of my favorite authors... Attention Deficit Democracy is kind of a painful read." Jan Mickleson, WHO Iowa radio

"Bovard... is one of very few journalists who are both pro-freedom and willing to dig... The dry wit is vintage Bovard, and is plentiful throughout Attention Deficit Democracy. Such Menckenesque touches are much appreciated... " Sunni Marvillosa

"Attention Deficit Democracy not only diagnoses our national malady, it provides a remedy as well. If you care about the loss of our liberty, have people read this book. Once Bovard gets their blood boiling, they start paying attention!" Charles Goyette, Air America

"Government, can only be as crooked as the public and media allow it to be, Bovard argues, decrying voters who vote for a candidate because he 'wears a cowboy hat'and the media for not being vigilant enough in calling out wayward politicians.... Readers looking for a rousing refresher on the merits of skepticism will find it here in spades." Publishers Weekly

"This is an amazing book... A fantastic job... Bovard is one of the best writers for freedom in the world today." Gardner Goldsmith, WNTK New Hampshire radio

"Bovard takes no prisoners in his argument that we, as a nation, have lost sight of the very tenants of freedom and democracy that the Founding Fathers wanted to establish." Tampa Tribune Online

"It is a great book. People should not read this book unless they are willing to have their arms twisted to think for themselves." Ron Smith, WBAL, Baltimore

"A fascinating read. I encourage you to get it" Peter McCandless, Radio Missouri

"Attention Deficit Democracy is a wake-up call to the American people. As Bovard reveals one ridiculous lie after another, you won't know whether to laugh or cry." Laissez Faire Books

"James Bovard has hit another one out of the park... Americans may suffer from an attention deficit when it comes to their government, but your attention will be riveted on this book. By the time I reached the final page, my copy bristled with Post-It notes marking Jim's brilliant observations, startling facts, and wickedly witty statements." Claire Wolfe, author and renowned hell-raiser
