    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.

    This book is awesome!
    Hallowell gives fun and useful strategies for dealing with child and adult Attention Deficit Disorder.

    I read his first book, Driven to Distraction, in the 90's and am quite impressed with the new strategies and 'improved' or updated philosophies and methods of dealing with ADD.

    An audiobook is a much easier way for ADD'ers to get through a book like this! Listening in LA traffic has been great.

    The book is full of examples of actual patients as well as some in depth stories of successful adults with ADD.

    The new thrust of dealing with ADD (in addition to outer structure, exercise, nutrition, medication, etc) is Emphasising the Strengths and Talents of the individual with ADD and the 'play cycle.'

    This is a very EMPOWERING AUDIOBOOK FOR THOSE WITH ADD AND THEIR PARENTS OR FAMILIES.
    I have ADD and my wife didn't want to listen at first, but I got her take the questionaire with me. Upon finishing the test, she had new understanding and compassion for my ADD.

    It includes some self-diagnostic questionaires and Hallowell makes good use of humor.

    Well narrated.
