The author holds that capitalism is the only system that produces massive dislocation even when it is functioning properly and that it is dislocation disruption of culture and community that produces addiction And addiction here is defined not as addiction to drugs but as all addictive behaviours I gained many good insights from reading this book and it kept my interest until the end although if you want polemic and fast paced journalistic style I would go for Chasing the Scream The analysis of St Augustine as a typical addicted personality was very illuminating especially given his profound influence on Christianity Certainly there were times in the book where I could have wished for a deeper analysis of certain aspects but there are plenty of signposts to follow up if one has the inclination and I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the subject
