Publisher's Summary

Millions of adults and children are discovering that the reason they can't seem to get organized, stop procrastinating, sit still, pay attention, and finish what they started is not a lack of self-discipline but, rather, an inborn neurological condition: Attention Deficit Disorder, or ADD.
From the authors of Driven to Distraction - their best-selling study of Attention Deficit Disorder - here is the new book that provides essential information for all those concerned with ADD: the estimated 15 million Americans suffering from it, their families and friends, and concerned professionals.
In Answers to Distraction, Drs. Hallowell and Ratey respond to the questions about ADD. The result is a "user's guide" to ADD presented in a question-and-answer format ideal for even the most distractable listener.
Accessible, concise, and leavened with humor, Answers to Distraction is an indispensable primer for anyone interested in, or affected by, Attention Deficit Disorder.
The best-selling authors of Driven to Distraction respond to the most frequently asked questions about Attention Deficit Disorder.

Some good practical advice

Good practical advice and must have basic knowledge on ADD. The performance is pretty terrible though.
