How to Focus and Be More Productive by Dr. Hallowell
This valuable book is for everyone wrestling to maintain focus at work! It is a business book, not a book on ADHD (although there is one chapter devoted to ADHD).
Stop workplace demands from wreaking havoc on your performance and sense of well-being!
Dr. 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.
The following 10 tips, each 3 words long, are part of the book. Please let me know if you find them helpful! – Edward Hallowell, M.D.

Driven to Distraction: Recognizing and Coping with Attention Deficit Disorder from Childhood through Adulthood
by Melissa Orlov
The ADHD Effect on Marriage was awarded “Best Psychology Book of 2010” by ForeWord Reviews, this book is an invaluable resource for couples in which one of the partners suffers from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). It authoritatively guides couples in troubled marriages towards an understanding and appreciation for the struggles and triumphs of a relationship affected by ADHD, and to look at the disorder in a more positive and less disruptive way. Going beyond traditional marriage counseling which can often discount the influence of ADHD, this straight-forward discussion offers advice from the Melissa Orlov’s personal experience and years of research and identifies patterns of behavior that can hurt marriages —such as nagging, intimacy problems, sudden anger, and memory issues —through the use of vignettes and descriptions of actual couples and their ADHD struggles and solutions. This resource encourages both spouses to become active partners in improving their relationship and healing the fissures that ADHD can cause. Also included are worksheets and various methods for difficult conversations so that couples can find a technique that fits their unique relationship and improve their communication skills.
