Edward M. Hallowell, M.D.
Edward M. Hallowell, M.D. is a renowned psychiatrist and the author of the new book Because I Come From a Crazy Family: The Making of a Psychiatrist. This book is, in many ways, a song of praise to the mentally ill and those who love them. Dr. Hallowell is honest about these complicated relationships and the difficult years of his own life that accompanied them, and he hopes that this honesty will inspire others to destigmatize the “crazy” in their own families. A portion of the author’s proceeds will be going to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Dr. Hallowell is also the bestselling author of Driven to Distraction and more than 20 books on attention deficit disorder and emotional well-being. He is a leading authority on ADHD, a world-renown speaker, the host of the podcast Distraction and the founder of the Hallowell Centers for Cognitive and Emotional Health in Boston, New York, San Francisco and Seattle.
