As Hallowell and Ratey point out, "attention deficit disorder" is a highly misleading description of an intriguing kind of mind. Original, charismatic, energetic, often brilliant, people with ADD have extraordinary talents and gifts embedded in their highly charged but easily distracted minds. Tailored expressly to ADD learning styles and attention spans, Delivered from Distraction provides accessible, engaging discussions of every aspect of the condition, from diagnosis to finding the proper treatment regime. Inside you'll discover:
whether ADD runs in families
the links between ADD and other conditions
how people with ADD can free up their inner talents and strengths
the new drugs and how they work, and why they're not for everyone
sexual problems associated with ADD and how to resolve them
strategies for dealing with procrastination, clutter, and chronic forgetfulness
ADD is a trait, it only becomes a disorder when it impairs your life. Featuring gripping profiles of patients with ADD who have triumphed, Delivered from Distraction is a wise, loving guide to releasing the positive energy that all people with ADD hold inside. If you have ADD or care about someone who does, this is the book you must read.

I first downloaded the unabridged version but never got finished listening to it. This edition is just the right speed for Add'ers. It gives a lot of ideas and knowledge, I learned lots of tricks that I use daily from this book.

A real Wow Book
I had just been diagnosed (as an adult) with ADD. I purched this audio book and wish that I had it years ago. It could have helped me and helped my son so much. I laughed at things I found in myself and I cried at both the new power of knowing what was wrong with me and the struggle that others share and that I identified with. If you have ADD or suspect that you or someone you love has it GET THIS BOOK NOW!
