Summary
Procrastination. Disorganization. Distractibility. Millions of adults have long considered these the hallmarks of a lack of self-discipline. But for many, these and other problems in school, at work and in social relationships are actually symptoms of an inborn neurological problem: ADD, or Attention Deficit Disorder.
Through vivid stories of their patients' experiences, Drs. Hallowell and Ratey now offer a comprehensive overview of one of the most controversial psychiatric diagnoses of our day. They show the varied forms ADD takes -- and the transforming impact of precise diagnosis and treatment. And, as successful professionals who are both living with ADD, they extend a message of hope and compassion to all listeners struggling with ADD in their own lives or in the lives of loved ones.
An enlightening exploration of a condition only recently identified, Driven To Distraction is a must for everyone intrigued by the workings of the human mind.

This book was very helpful. Read it twice in the first week and will read it several more times. Have referred it to a few friends already. The author spends time, through actual clients of his, showing the different symptoms by which ADD manifests itself and then gives good concrete methods to combat the negative aspects.

Start here!!! This is the best overall explanation of ADHD I’ve come across. I suggest listening to this prior to the updated version (ADHD 2.0) as I think it does the basics better.

My husband was recently diagnosed with ADD. I found this book very helpful in understanding what he is going through and to see how it has affected me as well. This book is the right mix of informative but not too scientifically based to feel like a textbook.

WOW! Very insightful. Gives a clear vision into the person with ADHD! A must read if you think you be, or think you are living with someone who might be ADHD.

This is a brief overview of ADD/ADHD. I was hoping for many more tips on the subject, but also realize this was one of the first books to appear on the subject. If you looking for a overall general info, go for it. But if you need something more detail oriented and practical, this is not the book for you.

This book was very helpful since my son was recently diagnosed with ADD. I would recommend this book to others to understand that there really is such a disorder as ADD and once diagnosed you can live with it successfully. After reading the book I felt relief for myself because I too have been diagnosed with ADD.

Quickly covers all the main points of the book, which I had read first. Probably not worth reading the book if you listen to the two CD's
