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: ADHD.
This is a fantastic and easy read for teens and adults who have ADHD or fit the profile. Dr. Hallowell is the clinical superstar of the ADHD world and has written several books on ADHD, including another favourite called Super Parenting for ADD. Through vivid stories of the experiences of their patients — both adults and children — Driven to Distraction shows the varied forms ADD takes — from the hyperactive search for high stimulation to the floating inattention of daydreaming — and the transforming impact of precise diagnosis and treatment.
