Product Description

Review

“A very readable, highly informative and helpful book.” –The New York Times Book Review
 
“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, M.D., author of Listening to Prozac 
 
“This is an important and much-needed book! Wise, practical, and reassuring.” —Jane M. Healy, Ph.D., author of Endangered Minds and Different Learners
 
“The first comprehensive book on the subject for the lay reader.” —The Boston Globe

This book is really informative for those with ADHD and can be very insightful for any who are wishing to learn more about this particular disorder or gain insight on things to do. I did find it boring, not sure if it was the ADHD speaking or what not however.

This should be considered a must-read for those that have ADHD. A strong overview of everything you should know once you've been diagnosed. The chapter on family dynamics was eerily accurate. Not a lot of the book focuses in depth coping mechanisms or where to go beyond diagnosis, but what an awesome place to start. I've already recommended it to others and just finished it today.

Compassionate, educational, and thorough examination of ADHD. I can't recommend it more highly!

This book provided excellent insights in the condition of ADD. It is written for everyone and clearly provides value understanding of the extremely troubling experiences associated with this condition. As a clinical social worker, working with many adolescents and adults living with ADD, in combination with many other serious disorders, I have gained a much better understanding of each individual's experience and adaptive difficulties. i would rank this book as comparable in its value with Gabor Mate's book Scrambled minds although it provides a somewhat different perspective.

This will help you understand those adults around you that seem to sabotage there success, the kids that appear wild and spoiled. They are all sharing in the same. They are not successful because they can't be until you understand ADD.

Not done reading yet. Very interesting.
Tons of research still needed. It is so complex and every patient presents differently.
