Delivered from Distraction: Getting the Most out of Life with Attention Deficit Disorder is a 2005 book by psychiatrists Edward (Ned) Hallowell and John Ratey about ADD/ADHD. Delivered from Distraction is a follow-up to the 1994 book Driven to Distraction. Both books deal with the challenges of ADD/ADHD and offer advice on treatment and how to live successfully with the disorder. This second book has a more biological focus than its predecessor and describes physiological diagnostic and treatment methods including the QEEG (Quantitative electroencephalography) which measures brain wave patterns, the SPEC scan (Single Proton Emission Computerized Tomography) which measures blood flow in the brain, nutritional interventions and cerebral stimulation.[1]
