This is improving, albeit slowly, says Mark Takahashi, senior reviews editor at Edmunds, a US consumer car website. It takes up more bandwith in your brain when you should be concentrating on the road. A nother option is to limit the functionality of a car in motion. Tesla, which is adding Netflix and YouTube by the end of this month, has designed its screens so distracting games and TV shows can't be played while the car is being driven.
This will change when the much-vaunted "full self-driving" comes into being, claims chief executive Elon Musk. When full self-driving is approved by regulators, we will enable video while moving.

I was constantly getting lost as a teenager, and these new systems really helped conquer that. People are hardwired to be easily distracted. We are obsessed with novelty and find it very difficult to ignore new information. In-car screens are only one small part of this, he argues.

The authors have a great deal of experience and expertise on Attention Deficit Disorder. They explain it in very well and use stories and examples that really help you understand what it is like to have ADD, and what you can do improve your life while living with it. While it imparts a great deal of information about ADD, I found some big differences between this book and the other books on the topic. First, both authors have ADD that was not diagnosed until they were adults, giving them a great deal of personal insight into the experience of living with ADD.
Secondly, they look t D, not as a completely negative condition, they explore the positive traits individuals with ADD possess as well. The authors provide many suggestions about how to work with your ADD and use its unique characteristics to your advantage.
Any additional comments? It would be great if the latest version of this book were available, this one was published in and there is a newer edition published in Since so much additional research has been done on the subject in the last 16 years, having access to that more current information would be very valuable. I'm got this book to better understand the girl I'm dating. To say the least; I have a profoundly better understanding of what she goes through, the triggers of things that are difficult, and how to communicate better and help create situations where her ADHD would otherwise not be factor in anyway.
Read it for yourself, or because you care about someone who is suffering from this. Would you consider the audio edition of Driven to Distraction to be better than the print version? If you have ADD audio books are great. If you know a person close that you think maybe or is already diagnosed this is a must read. I have been diagnosed by multiple professionals and teachers from childhood with everything from retardation to being Bi-Polar. They were wrong and this book leaves know doubt in my mind.
‘Are We There Yet?’ Review: Driven to Distraction - WSJ
A psychiatric nurse recommended this book and I can't thank her enough. This book can be life changing but the earlier diagnosed the better. Who was your favorite character and why? The tell stories of different individuals both children and adults; both male and female. What does Edward M. His voice inflections are perfectly matched to the subject. You feel the words. I truly enjoyed the audio version because of the voice changes. Without the vocal variety, I may have missed some important points. What was one of the most memorable moments of Driven to Distraction?
Which scene was your favorite? If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Driven to Distraction
Peeling the onion of my life. Well narrated, I was diagnosed with ADD about 30 years ago when they didn't know much about it and just prescribed medication. All I can say is I wish I knew about and read this book when it first came out. I expected more than 2 hours. He had some good points but the treatment suggestions were very brief. Don't listen to the "word on the street" about what this disorder is-find out the truth!
This book gave me the basic information I needed about ADD. Only the abridged version is available, would like to get the full version. This book helped me to understand myself so much more and forgive myself for errors and shortcomings that have haunted me for years. I was on ADD meds for years and don't agree with the author on any advise to take any ADD meds stimulants or anti-depressants. The meds were torcher and did not allow me to be myself. I would suggest Montessori schools for any ADD kids.
I do however agree with the authors advise to work hard to structure your days and pick someone to be your coach. You can't conquer something that you don't fully understand and this book helped me tremendously to understand my condition. Your audiobook is waiting…. By: Edward M. Hallowell M. Ratey M.
