If you or anyone you know have ADD/ADHD you need to read this book! It is full of useful information that will help you not only understand the condition better, but also give you tips on how to deal with it in daily life!
Delivered From Distraction is the most down-to-earth treatment of the ADD phenomenon that I've read to date. None of the associated difficulties are glossed over, yet the very real possibility of finding peace within yourself in spite of (and perhaps because of) the way in which you experience life as an 'ADDer' renews your mental and spiritual desire to see everything through to the end. I thought I was reading a book, but soon realized that I was reading my life story. The feeling of finally being 'understood' was just the beginning of the healing available in this book.
I am a occupational therapist and a mother of 2 ADD children. I've done my share of reading on the subject. I really like this one, even prefer it over "Driven..." which is also good. It is easily read by anyone but has enough details for the average professional The doctors are very sympathetic to the ADD condition. The chapters are broken down so that one can read the book a piece at a time. Good for all us ADDers!
Good general info about ADD and useful specifics for adult ADD, even includes co-occuring diagnosis info and addiction; more about what ADD is about everyday than medical causes.
I was lending my copy of this book to many of my adult clients in the field of addictions. But I was having difficulty getting it back because they were so "into" it. Some had actually been identified ADHD for years but didn't have this kind of info and understanding of their condition and what can be done. So now that there is a paperback I 'm ok asking them to buy their own after briefly looking at mine.
