Hallowell and Ratey released their much-awaited third book on ADHD, Delivered from Distraction. “Delivered” provides updated information on the treatment of ADHD and more on adult ADHD.
Dr. Ned Hallowell’s most recent book, Driven to Distraction at Work: How to Focus and Be More Productive was published 2015 and is an Amazon No. 1 bestseller! In Driven to Distraction at Work, Dr. Hallowell identified the underlying reasons why people lose their ability to focus at work. He explains why commonly offered solutions like “learn to manage your time better” or “make a to-do list” don’t work because they ignore the deeper issues that are the true cases of mental distraction.
In the Distraction with Dr. Ned Hallowell podcast, he explores how we are driven to distraction and offers coping strategies to turn modern problems into new-found strengths. Something we can definitely all use in our day-to-day lives!
