More About the Author

I am a child and adult psychiatrist with private practices in Sudbury, Mass as well as on the upper west side in New York City. Both practices operate under the name The Hallowell Center, where we offer diagnosis and a range of treatments for ADHD and learning problems in children and adults. I also am a writer and a speaker. I am married to Sue Hallowell, a social worker and a therapist. We have been married for 24 years and have 3 children, Lucy, now 23, Jack, 20, and Tucker, 17 (as of April, 2013).
The major theme that runs through all my work is the magical power of the human connection, and the power of positive connections of all kinds. I also specialize in learning differences and have written books about how to deal best with attention deficit disorder, a condition that I regard as a potential gift, if it handled correctly. Having both ADHD and dyslexia myself, I am particularly qualified to help people with these conditions bring out their best

Format: Paperback
In Dr. Ned Hallowell's last book, "Connect," he emphasized the importance of "connectedness" to physical, emotional, and mental health. These connections can be with family, friends, colleagues, animals, art, music, ritual, faith, nature, or even history -- and people who have such connections live longer, stay healthier, and find greater enjoyment in their lives and relationships. Dr. Hallowell's new book, "Human Moments," continues to explore the foundations of health in his trademark style of warmth and honesty that makes you feel as if he is speaking just to you. Human moments are those funny, joyful, warm, sad, poignant, inspiring, crazy, loving moments that, in the rush and stress of our daily lives, can so easily be overlooked. Human moments are the building blocks of connections. Hallowell's skill and gift is the ability to present his ideas in a manner so personal and approachable that it truly motivates readers to look at their own lives, values, and relationships, and change them for the better. My belief in the value and importance of Dr. Hallowell's work is not just idle talk. As the head of an organization that builds "connections" with children, parents, and teachers around the world, I have purchased well over a hundred copies of "Human Moments," and Dr. Hallowell's last book, "Connect," and given them out to our employees. I consider it one of the best investments I could possibly make in their health, and the health of the children, families, and communities we serve.

Format: Paperback
I happened to order this book from Amazon before Sept 11, 2001 and was so lucky to have it on hand during this week of horrible sadness, as we all watched the WTC and Pentagon destroyed in a few inhumane moments. The good doctor has given us powerful medicine to heal our world in these pages. This book has a simple message -- we need to take the time to love and care for one another, nothing else much matters. With the backdrop of tragedy this week to drive his message home, the book took on a timeliness never intended. The way we treat one another, the love we share, this alone gives our world meaning. Not preachy at all, the book teaches by stories, his and others, of what human moments are made of -- his poignant recounting of his grandmother's Christmas Eve tradition of driving the family into town from Cape Cod for a Boston Bruins game in the 1950's, his total fear and lack of confidence at becoming a medical doctor as he began his internship, his hesistation to propose to his second wife and near miss at great happiness with her and their three children. Hallowell does something brave that so many authors shy away from. He tells the truth. This is pretty shocking stuff when so many experts, pundits, philosophers, and writers make every effort NOT to reveal their weaknesses. By doing so, he is showing us how we can share our humanness too. He reminds us how to risk being human; be willing to admit how hard being alive can be, be vulnerable, be honest. Build a real world on real caring and consideration for others. Trust the one compass that always shows the way -- love.

10 of 12 people found the following review helpful By A small business owner and parent of teenagers on March 14, 2002
Format: Paperback
I got this book soon after my dad passed away at the age of 88. Reading this book provided a welcome opportunity to reflect on what is important in life and how to nurture the best in myself, my family, and friends. Hallowell's book addresses serious topics with a light touch. It is humorous, poignant, and wise. I particularly liked the sections that touch on the importance of making time for our children and our elders. I recommend it for anyone who is seeking a daily life that is less harried, task-driven, and mechanized. Buy it, keep it on your night table, and read a few pages at the end of each day. You won't be disappointed.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Joyce Leuchten on September 18, 2001
Format: Paperback
On September 11 our lives changed -- in ways still unknown. And that same week I started reading Human Moments, Dr. Hallowell's newest book. It is helping me get through this horrible time. From his inspiration and wisdom I am finding more meaning and fulfillment in my everyday world. I am learning to recognize and make the most of the situations we all experience--and how everyday encounters with others can become rich and lasting memories. Human Moments is the book I'm recommending to my book club for our first selection of the year. Joyce Leuchten, Mountain Lakes, NJ
