Psychiatrist Hallowell argues that the world's gone ADD. As we try to multitask our way through life (which he compares to playing tennis with two or more balls), we risk forfeiting the thoughtful lives we savor for shallow ones we barely notice. An attention deficit specialist, Hallowell encourages listeners to avoid "attention theft" by deliberately deciding where to put their focus. Narrator Don Leslie slips immediately into character, becoming the voice of Hallowell describing problems and prescribing solutions. Leslie has an attractive, easy-to-listen-to voice, and his reading is persuasive and intelligent. Engaged with the material himself, he helps listeners consider how to take charge and move from the frantic "F-state" to the calm "C-state."
