Abstract:

Roughly 5%-8% of the American population has ADD, but the majority of adults who have it don't know it. We now know that adults have it, too, though only about 15% of the roughly 10 million adults in the U.S. who have ADD are diagnosed and treated. Attention deficit disorder, or ADD, is a misleading name for an intriguing kind of mind. For many people, ADD is a trait, a way of being in the world. When it impairs their lives, it becomes a disorder. But once they learn to manage its disorderly aspects, they can take full advantage of the many talents and gifts embedded in this sparkling kind of mind. In Delivered from distraction, Edward M. Hallowell (an instructor at Harvard Medical School and director of the Hallowell Center for Cognitive and Emotional Health in Sudbury) and John J. Ratey, both of whom have ADD, address questions such as is there a biological basis to ADD? and what is the 5-step plan that promotes talents and strengths? If you have ADD or care about someone who does, this is the book you must listen to.
