    A smart and funny book by a prominent Harvard psychologist, which uses groundbreaking research and (often hilarious) anecdotes to show us why we're so lousy at predicting what will make us happy, and what we can do about it.

    Terril Lowe says: "Great Book!"
    "Stumbling through studies related to some emotions"
    Overall

    I always enjoy a good review of the literature preceding a social psychology hypothosis, but, based on the title of this book, was expecting a more definitive conclusion. This book left me feeling that the author had attempted to study a bubble by dissecting it and, quite predictably, the results were both disapointing and somewhat depressing.

    In 1994, Driven to Distraction sparked a revolution in our understanding of attention deficit disorder. Now a second revolution is under way in the approach to ADD, and the news is great. Drug therapies, our understanding of the role of diet and exercise, even the way we define the disorder, all are changing radically. And doctors are realizing that millions of adults suffer from this condition, though the vast majority of them remain undiagnosed and untreated.

    Lincoln says: "Excellent Book on ADD"
    "Life Changing"
    Overall

    This book is literally changing my life. It is amazing to view ADD from a positive perspective and focus on how to build on the strengths rather than just fighting the challanges!

    Armed camps of eco-survivalists battle purveyors of technology in this exclusive, original production featuring five sci-fi masters and five all-star narrators.

    Karen says: "Fascinating stories"
    "Fingernails on a chalkboard"
    Overall

    If you are going to narrate a story set in a very specific locale, is it too much to ask that you learn how to pronounce the names of its rivers, mountains and valleys? Even the pronunciation of the state is slightly off. If the story was captivating, innovative or engaging these persistent annoyances might be overlook, but, alas, the story is none of these. I do not know if I have the stamina to attempt the second.
