Kontynuacja poprzedniej książki tych samych autorów, W świecie ADHD, którą uznano za pozycję klasyczną w swoim gatunku. Obaj uczeni, powołując się na najnowsze badania, słusznie zauważają, że nazwa "zespół nadpobudliwości psychoruchowej" nie najlepiej opisuje zadziwiającą umysłowość ludzi z ADHD. Przecież dysponują oni wieloma uzdolnieniami, są często bardzo inteligentni, ...more

To be honest, I only read a few chapters. It was annoying. The authors are so proud of themselves for having ADHD that they draumatically forgo putting this book in any kind of order. It's so random- almost as bad as Glenn Beck. I love ADD (ADHD) people. I am very ADHD riddled myself. It has presented problems in the past, but I was one of the lucky ones to be blessed with a steel resolve (I get what I want)... and I wanted to conquor ADHD.

Every effort should be made by the individual- no matte

Incredibly insightful and re-assuring. Not quite as practical in day to day strategies as I was hoping, but had some good insight into life and some unexpected suggestions that have already helped me. I’d recommend this book to anyone who has ADD, thinks they might have ADD, loves someone with ADD, loves someone they think might have ADD, or anyone who “doesn’t believe in” ADD.

This book is a good overview of what ADD is, both as a medically-diagnosable condition and as a collection of strengths and weaknesses in real people.

Chapters talk about how ADD manifests in kids, adult diagnosis, living with loved ones with ADD and coping with your own ADD. There's a fair amount of coverage of other challenges that somtimes occur at the same time as ADD, such as dyslexia. There are a number of scenarios and success stories that can guide people and families in through their pa

I’m just gonna put a warning out there that this review is not politically correct. It does not follow the socially acceptable ideal that all people are equal and that unlimited resources should be spent bringing up the bottom.

I am, in fact, an elitist. I recognize that I am LUCKY to have been born with above average intelligence and above average appearance. I am the first to tell you that who I am and where I am in life is dependent upon both my brains and my looks, but I have also worked hard

I was recently diagnosed with ADHD, so I'm reading up on my options for treatment, particularly non-pharmaceutical options. This book is informative and a confidence booster, especially if you have thought your whole life that your were crazy, unorganized, lazy, etc. I get why I function the way I do now, and there are some great suggestions in this book on how to cope with your quirky brain, both behavioral and pharmaceutical. I highly recommend this to anyone who thinks they have ADHD/ADD, who ...more

This is an important book for anyone who has ADD, or anyone who loves someone who has ADD. It is a comprehensive overview of what is currently known (and some of the edges of the science). It's humorous. It contains helpful dietary, sleep, exercise, and medication advice. It also contains some "brain exercises" that seem like a sophisticated form of patting your head and rubbing your stomach that apparently engage and develop areas of the brain that have more difficulty integrating information i ...more

I misunderstood ADD completely before I read this book. I used to associate ADD with hyperactive 10 year old boys who couldn't sit still, but it turns out that this is only the stereotypical condition. If you've ever felt frustrated with yourself for being unable to start or end tasks or just want to learn how those who have ADD see their world, buy yourself this book.

I'll add that DELIVERED FROM DISTRACTION is written in a style that is a pleasure to read for people who have a hard time focusin

This book showed me I'm not lazy, stupid, undermotivated, or fundamentally flawed -- I have ADD. It's both a challenge and a "gift that's hard to unwrap," but it's not insurmountable, and it's not a personality defect.

This book taught me many incredibly useful coping strategies. It made me laugh with recognition; it made me cry with relief. And it gave me hope.

If you have ADD/ADHD, or you think you might have it, or you know or love someone who has it, you owe it to yourself (and/or to them) to

This book was a good overview of ADD in adults and children, its symptoms, its manifestations, and various strategies for treatment. The tone was conversational and supportive, directed mostly at people who had ADD, reassuring them that there were benefits along with the weaknesses of the condition, that they were different rather rather than deficient, The book also contained many pracitcal tips to control ADD symptoms or to fight its negative consequences - getting enough sleep, daily exercise ...more

Overall, a great introduction to ADD for people with an interest, but no in-depth understanding. Also seems like a good starting point for people who suspect they, or a loved one, has ADD symptoms. (Hallowell insists it should not be called ADHD, because hyperactivity isn't always present). The book is generally easy to read (except for the scattered organization - see below) - written for the lay person.

Irony: Taking nine freaking months to finish this because...I kept getting distracted.

This is a great overview of adult ADD/ADHD, everything from which acronym to use to dead-on descriptions of the ADD brain to overviews of various treatments.

One thing that was helpful just as a reader was being able to see myself reflected in it: I've come up with explanations for my default circadian rhythm (noon-four am) or "distracting myself enough to pay attention," and then to see those same things writte

More like "Delivered into Distraction," and, no, it's not a laughing matter. This book truly is a huge waste of one's time when that person with ADHD could be looking for a professional therapist, particularly one specializing in CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) or DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy). Also, finding a book or some other excellent resource on either therapy of the therapies mentioned above would greatly help with one being able to manage one's own mental illness.

As a highly stressed ADD'ed individual working in the information systems / design industry, this book has helped me tremendously and I have as a result recommended to many of my friends.

Written by two Harvard Medical school graduates, both of which have ADD, this book demonstrate through real-life examples how to live one's life to the fullest.

Written in ADD-friendly writing style--lists, dialog, etc.--the book serves as an excellent guide to hack your life:

Of all the ADHD books I've read, I would put this one at the top of the list. An update to Driven to Distraction, it has the latest in the last 20 years of research on ADHD. This is the most dog-eared and underlined book I own! I expect it will be a good parenting reference for us over the years.

The best part I would emphasize to anyone with a child with ADHD is the 8 area plan for treatment. Medication is only one of the eight areas of treatment.

Excellent resource.

If you're an adult and have been diagnosed with ADD (hyperactive-, inattentive-, or combined-typed) this is the first book you should read. Most content applies to the hyperactive type, like many of the books out there. But we all have the impulsivity and other traits common which this book covers. I was diagnosed with inattentive type and found this book very helpful and therapeutic.

An absolutely fascinating read--if you or someone you love has ADD/ADHD. Helped me understand better the minds of 3 of my very favorite people in the world, and made me much more sympathetic to their challenges (and more patient in the process :o) It's also great as an audiobook--the author (who has ADD) reads it himself!

I wish I'd read this book ten years ago. Then, I wouldn't have thought this was just a unique problem that my dad and I suffered from. I would have been able to address issues from a much more scientific, healing standpoint instead of just beating my head against the wall over and over.

Super well research book, and an awesome introduction for someone who doesn't know much about ADHD, because it gives you a good foundation of knowledge. The chapters are laid out so you can skip over whole chapters if the subject make doesn't interest you (perfect for those with attention problems, lol), and it's very well organized so it's easy to follow and covers lots of different material. Of course, because of the nature of the book it covers a lot of things only minimally, so don't expect ...more

The world of AD/HD is a miserable world but it doesn't have to be that way. We have all different types of AD/HD and it can all be managed. We live in a generation that even highly rewards AD/HD but one would have to learn how to fine-tune and sharpen away from all the negative connotations that have been put into AD/HD. Some negative connotations are true, others are lies. It's the maturing process of building up a beautiful brain and mind that one has to work on from all angles of primary exis ...more

I read this book to help myself learn and understand more about one of my children. I found however that I actually learned things that can help not only my son but myself as well. I will admit that going through this book via audio made it much more feasible. 43 Chapters is a lot of information to get through. The only suggestion I have is for the audio chapters to be labeled. I personally like to see what the chapter is about that I'm going to read or will be reading next when I check the tabl ...more

I love Hallowell's books. He's warm, caring, and assumes the best. This book has tons of information in it and is probably not to be read in one sitting. But do keep it around, and if you consider doing anything, come to this book and read what Dr. Hallowell has to say first. His writing is very balanced and positive -- I think that it helps even some of the other information out!

“THE SEVEN HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE ADD ADULTS 1. Do what you’re good at. Don’t spend too much time trying to get good at what you’re bad at. (You did enough of that in school.) 2. Delegate what you’re bad at to others, as often as possible. 3. Connect your energy to a creative outlet. 4. Get well enough organized to achieve your goals. The key here is “well enough.” That doesn’t mean you have to be very well organized at all—just well enough organized to achieve your goals. 5. Ask for and heed advice from people you trust—and ignore, as best you can, the dream-breakers and finger-waggers. 6. Make sure you keep up regular contact with a few close friends. 7. Go with your positive side. Even though you have a negative side, make decisions and run your life with your positive side.” 6 likes
