Driven To Distraction

Hallowell, E. & Ratey, J. (1994).Paperback, 319 pg.

Comments: A classic, considered by many as the "bible" of ADD books. It covers general ADHD issues from childhood to adulthood, with lots of practical information and suggestions. It's an easy read. Ed Hallowell is a practicing psychiatrist who has ADD himself. It has a large section in the middle, a list of over 100 symptoms/features of ADD that many patients find useful. The same team wrote a sequel called Answers to Distraction,which is essentially the same book but in a Q & A form.

A. D. D. and Romance: Finding Fulfillment in Love, Sex, & Relationships

Jonathan Scott Halverstadt

Comments: Strongly recommend if you are having relationship problems (as many people with ADHD are). It is also recommend for partners/spouses as well. It's not the best-written book, but it's better than others out there.

ADD In The Workplace

Nadeau, K. (1997).

Comments: A very good, comprehensive discussion of the problems many adults with ADD experience in their jobs, along with practical coping skills and solutions.
