Dedicated to the disorganized, distracted and demoralized.


Most men live lives of quiet desperation.”



With gratitude to:

My wife, Martha, who has chosen to tolerate me, my ADD, and my writing, with varying degrees of patience but with constant affection.

All those family, friends and patients who have contributed to this book and allowed me to tell part of their stories.

All those who struggled to review some of the terrible early drafts, and those who reviewed and proofread the last ones, which were somewhat better.

Those few hardy souls who both contributed and reviewed.

And Juan, the illustrator.
