Steve Coogan was born and raised in Manchester in the 1960s, the fourth of six children. From an early age he entertained his family with impressions and was often told he should 'be on the telly'. Failing to get into any of the London-based drama schools, he accepted a place at Manchester Polytechnic School of Theatre and before graduating had been given his first break as a voice artist on the satirical puppet show Spitting Image. The late eighties and early nineties saw Coogan developing characters he could perform on the comedy circuit, from Ernest Moss to Paul Calf, and in 1992 he won a Perrier award with John Thomson. It was around the same time, while working with Armando Iannucci and Patrick Marber on On The Hour and The Day Today, that Alan Partridge emerged, almost fully formed. Coogan, once a tabloid fixture, is now a respected film actor, writer and producer. He runs his own production company, Baby Cow, has a raft of films to his name (from 24 Hour Party People to Alpha Papa, the critically-acclaimed Partridge film), six Baftas and seven Comedy Awards. He has found huge success in recent years with both The Trip and Philomena, the latter bringing him two Oscar nominations, for producing and co-writing. In Easily Distracted he lifts the lid on the real Steve Coogan, writing with distinctive humour and an unexpected candour about a noisy childhood surrounded by foster kids, his attention-seeking teenage years and his emergence as a household name with the birth of Alan Partridge.

The information age bombards us with data from so many souces and media outlets that we find it difficult to maintain control over what we want or what we need to think about. Urgo alerts us to the contours of such technological imprisonment. He argues against allowing ourselves to be controlled by the tools we have created, and, with thought-provoking analysis, urges that we assume positions of power over those things that demand our attention.

"The strengths of this text include its comprehensiveness, its overall organization, and the study aids included in each chapter. The book lays the foundation for occupational therapy practice and identifies the broad knowledge base required for this endeavor. Building on this foundation, the book progresses logically from assessment through intervention with specific foci on postural control, hand function, visual perception, psychosocial and emotional development, feeding and oral motor skills, self-care and adaptation for independent living, play, handwriting, augmentative communication and computer access, and mobility. Specific strengths in content that merit emphases are the attention to the psychosocial development and needs of children, the use of technology to increase function, the importance of families and others in the child's system through the continuing process of adaptation, and the legislation that is relevant to children with disabilities and their families." (Foreword, p. ix).
