Description



About the Book



"Originally published in hardcover in slightly different form by Pantheon Books ... in 1994, and subsequently published in paperback by Touchstone ... in 1995"--T.p. verso.



Book Synopsis



Groundbreaking and comprehensive, Driven to Distraction has been a lifeline to the approximately eighteen million Americans who are thought to have ADHD. Now the bestselling book is revised and updated with current medical information for a new generation searching for answers.

Through vivid stories and case histories of patients--both adults and children--Hallowell and Ratey explore the varied forms ADHD takes, from hyperactivity to daydreaming. They dispel common myths, offer helpful coping tools, and give a thorough accounting of all treatment options as well as tips for dealing with a diagnosed child, partner, or family member. But most importantly, they focus on the positives that can come with this "disorder"--including high energy, intuitiveness, creativity, and enthusiasm.



Review Quotes




"A very readable, highly informative and helpful book." -The New York Times Book Review

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
