Editorial Reviews

Review

“With its wise and compassionate counsel and great ideas for bridging the “disconnect” all too often a part of married life these days, this is a unique, engaging, and profoundly helpful book. It can save a marriage or simply help people in happy marriages get closer and feel more fulfilled.”—Suzy Welch, New York Times bestselling author of 10-10-10: A Life Transforming Idea
 
“Edward Hallowell is already beloved by readers for his compassionate, incisive and accessible books about ADD, crazybusiness and creating childhood happiness. Now he teams with his wife, Sue, and together they bring his trademark mixture of science, good humor, empathy and faith to the topic of marriage in the age of distraction. They draw upon a wealth of professional experience to illustrate the difficulties of maintaining meaningful intimacy in our disconnected time, but it is ultimately their own personal spirits—generous and warm, honest and yes, loving—that make this book a pleasure. I urge all people who yearn for more in their marriages to read Married to Distraction--and, in particular, those hungry to move beyond conflict and condemnation to connection and understanding.”—Judith Warner, author of Perfect Madness

“This timely book could save your marriage. With wit and humor, Ned and Sue Hallowell astutely call attention to the epidemic distraction plaguing our relationships today. They gently guide us toward intimate connection—through the art of paying attention. Spare some time to focus on their wisdom, and discover anew the depth of love.” —Maggie Jackson, author of Distracted: The Erosion of Attention and the Coming Dark Age
 
“It is remarkable that a couple so well versed in the woes of their patients’ marriages has the capacity for the kind of optimism and clear-sighted wisdom that readers will find in these pages. The Hallowells (he teaches at Harvard Medical School and heads the Hallowell Center for Cognitive and Emotional Health; she is a couples’ therapist) examine the new and hard-to-resist stresses placed on the modern-day marriage with a compassionate focus on forgiveness and self-reflection. Those in search of practical, concrete advice for creating and saving healthy marriages will find what they need.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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

I found this book to be extremely insightful, practical, and hopeful. Communicating in the 21st century is often fast, easy and constant...but not always meaningful or worthwhile. This book offers guidance for those who want to nurture and enjoy a special relationship while managing the demands of living in a fast-paced, high-tech world.
Married to Distraction is a very thought-provoking book and comes at a time when many people need to assess how to balance work and play.

Good book, but I wish it was more nuanced. It was too obvious in sections and did not present enough different situations. But it is good to see a book on older couples and hopefully will encourage more work dealing with this subject.

A friend told me this was promoted in a TV interview as being a book on marriage with an ADD partner. Having previously read Driven to Distraction by the same author, I expected this to be an illuminating guide to my daily reality. Unfortunately, only one chapter is really devoted to this; the bulk of the book deals with the general distractions of modern life which affect marriages without diagnosed ADD. Nonetheless, it does offer some very cogent ideas for focusing one's attention on what matters, and I did learn several useful points.

Married to distraction is a great guide for navigating relationships in the age of distracting and time consuming technology. It includes a lot of great strategies for improving your relationship-- all packed into efficient lists and well organized chapters. I would highly recommend it for busy, working professionals or anyone who wants to jump start their marriage or relationship. You'd be surprised by how many relationship no no's you're guilty of!

Dr. Hallowell is an ADHD expert which makes this book particularly salient for people struggling with the disorder (they even throw in a chapter devoted to this)!

I highly recommend this book. Its a quick, entertaining, and encouraging read!

A very interesting read on modern life and how distraction affects our primary relationships. INcludes a 30-day plan for re-connecting with your partner and maintaining that intimacy.
