Chad’s Book Corner

Driven to Distraction by Edward M. Hallowell M.D. and John J. Ratey M.D.

I have ADHD and found this book to be very helpful. ADHD is often under-diagnosed, especially with women. If you or someone you interact with has ADHD, “Driven to Distraction” is a great way to better understand and accommodate the various factors at play. Minimally, this book will help you better empathize with this cognitive impairment to produce more effective websites and communicate compassionately with your peers.
