Edward Hallowell, an expert in ADD, tries in this book to broaden his horizons to include the rest of the world. I am ADD, have loved all Hallowell's previous books and found a lot of good information in them. In this one, I found a description of our "crazy busy" world built on a lot of Hallowell-created terms and little helpful information.
If your goal is to understand our modern world or to assure yourself that you are no crazier than the rest of us, this books is for you. If you are looking for practical suggestions to get control of the madness, they are there, if you have the patience to wade through the description to get to them, but they are nothing more than common sense. If you are ADD this book is not for you.

Good: The writing is more than competent. Don Leslie is the best reader now working; wonderful, rich, expressive voice.
Bad: The author simply does not have enough ideas on managing modern life to fill a book this long. He starts off well, then repeats his descriptions of how busy we are, over and over for hours. He even runs out of normal words for our modern, harried life, so makes up several of his own. We must listen as he defines and re-defines these made-up words, uses them in made-up sentences. I can't finish this book, and neither should you. I won't even recommend the abridged version, because that's just three hours of your life, listening to variations on, "We're too busy these days."
