NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE FROM RELATIVITY MEDIA
A burnout at thirty-five, months behind on his book, low on cash, and something of a loser, Eddie Spinola could use a shot in the arm. One day he randomly runs into Vernon, his ex-wife's brother, and his ex-dealer. Now employed by a shadowy pharmaceutical company, Vernon has something that might help: a new designer drug that stimulates brain function. One pill and Eddie is hooked. His book is finished within days; he learns and synthesizes information at a frightening rate; and he can go a long time without sleep or food. Naturally, he begins to play the stock market. But when Vernon turns up dead, Eddie makes off with the only stash of the drug in existence. Then come the side effects: black-outs, blinding headaches, and violent outbursts he can't seem to remember.
Alan Glynn's Limitless is a high-concept thriller for this Adderall age, and a haunting meditation on the allure and the curse of human potential.

Good book but don’t expect it to follow the movie.
Better than the movie
The movie was great and that is why I downloaded the book. However, I just finished the book and was blown away. Absolutely amazing!
Whenever I see a movie that looks good I immediately read the book instead
This one kept me riveted during a two day power outage, I have been cold but wasn't for a second bored! Fast paced and original, it's hard to find a book with a totally new idea, and this author did a fantastic job!
