"From the bestselling author of Driven to Distraction, the world's leading expert on ADD and ADHD tackles attention deficit inside today's workplaces. Ned Hallowell, known for his work with children and adults, now identifies the underlying reasons why people really lose their ability to focus at work--where many of today's adults feel distracted and unproductive. He explains why commonly offered solutions like "learn to manage your time better" or "make a to-do list" just don't work because they don't address the deeper, underlying issues of mental distraction at play. Through a set of reliable techniques, Hallowell shows how anyone can regain control of their attention and most productive mental state. By identifying the most common patterns for how and why people surrender their attention, Hallowell helps readers acknowledge and break the habits that undermine their effectiveness. Illustrated with compelling stories based on the successful diagnosis and treatment of thousands of people who have sought Dr. Hallowell's help"- Provided by publisher.
