Modern marriage is busy, distracted, and overloaded to extremes, with ever-increasing lists of things to do, superficial electronic connections, and interrupted moments. Now Edward M. Hallowell, the best-selling co-author of Driven to Distraction and Delivered from Distraction, teams up with his wife, Sue George Hallowell, a couples' therapist, to explain the subtle but dangerous toll today's overstretched, undernurtured lifestyle takes on our most intimate relationship.
The good news is that there are straightforward and effective ways to maneuver your marriage out of the destructive roadblocks created by the avalanche of busy living:
All of us who have been part of a couple for more than a few years will recognize ourselves in this reassuring book. Married to Distraction will set couples on a course of understanding, healing, and love.

No, I guess I'm just coming from a different place than the intended audience for this book. I picked it because I have ADHD, my husband and I both struggle with electronics and life getting in the way of our time together and I thought it would have helpful advice. If there is any in there I haven't seen it yet because the first few hour or more seems to be one angry example of an argument after another. I understand the need to give examples but an hour of listening to couples argue makes me feel angry and isn't very helpful at all. I don't think I can even finish this audio book.
I had just finished listening to this by myself, and will be listening to it with my husband this week as we are traveling. So many times, I could relate to exactly how the authors were describing the problems between couples. I have hope for us, finally!
I was looking for an audio book about ADHD in marriage. This book only has 1 chapter about it. I should have read the intro using the "Search Inside This Book" tool. Although I checked the Table of Contents, and browsed through, somehow I thought it's for ADHD because that's the authors' field. I'll try to return this.
Probably, if something interesting comes up.
Good voices and performance. Not boring.
I don't know. I didn't listen all the way to the end. It's not the material I needed.
