Review: Advance praise for Delivered from Distraction
"
"Delivered from Distraction" "is just what it promises. In this remarkable volume, Ned Hallowell and John Ratey bring the latest information on ADD to homes and hearts everywhere, conveying the burgeoning scientific information with humor, hope, and clarity. As the authors point out, ADD needn't be a sentence to secondhand status. The ADDer who hearkens to their sage and practical whole-life advice will make the most of his or her talents. This book is certain to be a classic for the next decade.
PETER S. JENSEN, M.D., Ruane Professor of Child Psychiatry, director, Center for the Advancement of Children s Mental Health, Columbia University/New York State Psychiatric Institute

" If you read only one book about attention deficit disorder, it should be Delivered from Distraction. No two psychiatrists in America have thought more deeply about ADD than Ned Hallowell and John Ratey, and no one writes about it with more feeling, understanding, and accuracy. Most important, Hallowell and Ratey share their wisdom about living a good life with ADD. What an optimistic and helpful book!
MICHAEL THOMPSON, PH.D., New York Times bestselling co-author of Raising Cain
Edward Hallowell has written a comprehensive, easy-to-understand book on ADD. This is clearly the definitive source of information on Attention Deficit Disorder.
HAROLD S. KOPLEWICZ, M.D., Arnold and Debbie Simon Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, director, Child Study Center, New York University School of Medicine
A deeply wise and truly helpful book, written with frankness, humor, and tremendous empathy. As a pediatrician, I have been recommending Driven to Distraction to parents for many years, and this new book brings the reader fully up to date in a rapidly changing field, combining the important information about the science and treatment of ADD with powerful advice about getting through life, succeeding in life, and enjoying life.
PERRI KLASS, M.D., author of Quirky Kids
What is unique and particularly valuable in Hallowell and Ratey s approach is the hopeful message, insistently repeated, that at the heart of ADD lies a bonanza of wonderful qualities, and that in treatment, these strengths and talents can and should be identified and developed.
CHARLES MAGRAW, M.D., past president, Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute
