Editorial Reviews

Review

“Why do so many people have trouble focusing on the job in hand? This ADD guru tackles the problem of attention deficit in the workplace with tips on braking the habits that undermine effectiveness.” — Qantas The Australian Way

“ a practical, encouraging guide.” — Booklist

“This book deals with a topic of pressing concern for most of us, offering clarity, wisdom and plenty of ideas for getting out of the maelstrom. Each section is built around stories from Dr. Hallowell’s practice that seem taken from the people around us, making it all the more compelling.” — Harvey Schachter, The Globe & Mail

“When it comes to distraction, Hallowell knows his business.” — HR Professional magazine

Many workers will recognize themselves in Hallowell’s descriptions and will be game to try his solutions.” — BizEd magazine

“Hallowell has sensible advice, and infuses his narrative style with deep knowledge and medical rigour.” — The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development

“… the book provides an easy-to-follow recipe for teaching yourself to focus in the midst of the workplace chaos.” — Inc.com
