Edward Hallowell and John Ratey have published a follow-up to their successful book Driven to Distraction. On a hopeful note, it is titled Delivered from Distraction. The first book was written in the 1990s. It contains much good advice on ADHD: diagnosis, medications, telling it apart from other conditions as well as finding it in combination with others, and—exceptionally helpful—it offers structured ideas for parents, teachers, and those who have ADHD themselves. This more-recent book gives a superb update on medications and includes detailed case history. These are two exceptional volumes.
