A Taste For Distraction is a collage of all of what I consider to be my most significant thoughts, poems, prose, beliefs, and dreams. Those that best describe my self... my views. The truths of the world, in plain words. In the beginning, writing was my way of coping with the world around me. Later, it became my way of understanding it. Then my way of revealing what I’d learned to others, as well as a form of expression. What you will read in this book are the very thoughts and dreams that make up the plains of my evolution from boy to man, from man to human, from human to Never. What you will learn is the inner most part of me... exactly how I view myself, and everyone around me. And hopefully you will feel the truth of it all. This book was not written to make you believe or follow anything you might find here. It was written to make you think. It was written to make you question why people make it a common practice to shake off the deepest thoughts, or the strongest desires and call them daydreams or fantasies. It was written to make you question why so many surrender their dreams to settle for something they don’t want, or don’t believe in. It was written to make you question why we never say what we really want to say... shrug off our truest feelings, and shake our heads to say, “I’m sorry. I got distracted.” I can only hope that we are all distracted from time to time. Enjoy.

Most of us struggle with distraction every day: the familiar feeling that our attention is not quite where it should be. We feel it at work and at home and it can be frustrating and uncomfortable. But what is distraction? In his lucid, timely book, Damon Young shows that distraction is more than too many stimuli, or too little attention. It is actually a matter of value - to be distracted is to be torn away from what is worthwhile in life. And for Young, what is most worthwhile is freedom: not simply rights or legal liberties, but the capacity to patiently, creatively craft one's own life. Exploring the lives of such luminaries as Henri Matisse, Karl Marx, Seneca and Henry James, Young exposes distraction in work, technology, art, politics and intimacy. With warmth and wit, he reveals what is most valuable, and what is best avoided, in the pursuit of a life of one's own.

The book highlights the application of distraction osteogenesis in repositioning of teeth. The paradigm in orthognathic surgery has shifted in a way that it is now possible to perform distraction osteogenesis in an outpatient basis. The principles and procedures involved in this cutting edge technique are outlined in the book. Rapid orthodontics, sophisticated imaging, tissue engineering, principles of bone healing and tissue repair and more are discussed by leaders in the field. Through distraction osteogenesis (slow movement) and orthognathic surgery (immediate movement), virtually every kind of facial deformity is treatable in a reasonable period of time. Dr. Bell, a prime mover in oral and maxillofacial surgery, has collected contributions from first-class academicians and practitioners in the field for this lavishly illustrated volume.
