Book Description :

More than 40 million Americans may suffer from the indecision and problems with concentration that characterize adult attention deficit disorder (ADD). Two leading neurologists explain what adult ADD is and how to cope with it, especially with technological assistance--the personal computer, beepers, special watches, and more.

Card catalog description

Do you have difficulty getting organized? Are you forgetful? Unable to focus? Hyperactive? You may have adult attention deficit disorder. Distraction can make it hard to detect, and debate among doctors can complicate an accurate diagnosis. But now two of the most prominent neurologists in the field cut through the confusion to define what adult ADD really is and what you can do about it.

Impulsivity, hyperactivity, inattention and distractability--words that ring a bell? For the estimated six million Americans suffering from Attention Deficit Disorder, such words interfere with daily life! For another 40 million people, such words alone make them think they have ADD. In simple and friendly terms, this book offers help to those leading frustrating lives. It provides coping mechanisms, both psychological and an up-to-date guide to the latest technology that people with ADD will benefit from.
