DRIVEN TO DISTRACTION
Recognizing and Coping with Attention Deficit Disorder
from Childhood Through Adulthood

Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., and John Ratey, M.D.

Millions of children and adults tell themselves or are admonished by others that they will continue to have problems in school, in work, and in social relationships if they don't stop procrastinating, start concentrating, sit still, finish what they started, get organized. But what appears to be a matter of self-discipline is actually, for many, a more complex challenge of coping with an inborn neurological problem: ADD, or Attention Deficit Disorder.

Through vivid stories of the experiences of their patients (both adults and children), Drs.. Hallowell and Ratey show the varied forms ADD takes -- from the hyperactive search for high stimulation to the floating inattention of precise diagnosis and treatment. The authors explain when and how medication can be extraordinarily helpful, and since both doctors have ADD, their advice on effective behavior-modification techniques for overcoming the syndrome is enriched by their own experience. Recognizing that the impact of ADD on the families and spouses of those struggling with its repercussions can be overwhelming, Drs. Hallowell and Ratey offer concrete suggestions for those closest to ADD patients -- including teachers and therapists.

An enlightening exploration of a condition only recently identified, DRIVEN TO DISTRACTION is a book for everyone intrigued by the workings of the human mind.

"Conversational in tone, encyclopedic in content, and, best of all, utterly convincing because of its grounding in clinical experience, DRIVEN TO DISTRACTION should make Attention Deficit Disorder comprehensible even to the most distractible reader." Peter D. Kramer, MD, Author of Listening to Prozac.

"This is an important and much-needed book! Wise, practical, and reassuring, it should clarify much of the confusion currently surrounding Attention Deficit Disorder.

A must-read for anyone who knows, treats, or is an 'underachiever' -- in school or in life." Jane M. Healy, Ph.D., Author of Endangered Lives. "A must-read for clinicians of every theoretical persuasion, as well as for persons who have attention disorders or who are concerned that they may have." Charles E. Magraw, MD, Past President, Supervising and Training Analyst, Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute.

"This rich resource has it all: education, family perspectives, diagnosis and treatment, subtypes, but throughout there is a joyful and pervading sense of hope. One cannot read this book without developing a great sense of how it feels to live with ADD -- to compensate for, even to benefit from, its characteristics." Sandra Freed Thomas, R.N., Past President of CH.A.D.D.
Published by Pantheon Books, New York 1994. Paperback edition published by Touchstone Press, 1995.
