This is an essential guide for people who suspect that they or a loved one might have ADHD. In clear, unbiased prose, it addresses the controversies surrounding the diagnosis and treatment of this disorder. It is written in a manner that is easily accessible without sacrificing the basic science important to understanding this condition." --Sanford Newmark, MD, Clinical Professor of Pediatrics and Director, Pediatric Integrative Neurodevelopmental Program, Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, UC San Francisco
"Many trade books exist on ADHD but exceptionally few are written by expert clinical scientists who have spent their long careers both studying ADHD and working with families and patients with ADHD. And fewer still of those books are this current in harvesting the results of more than 1,000 science articles per year published on the disorder. This is one of those rare few. It contains extensive, useful information not only on the nature of the disorder and its causes and life course but, more importantly, on the best ways to manage the condition. Despite the richness of science-based information it contains, it reads easily. It is clearly a must-read for parents of children with the disorder, teachers who must educate them, and adults with ADHD." --Russell A. Barkley, PhD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics, Medical University of South Carolina
"Well researched and unbiased, this book dispels the myths surrounding ADHD and the ADHD 'industrial complex.' Even better, it answers so many of the important questions adults have when they - or one or their children - is diagnosed with ADHD. It's easy to read, well organized, and based in the latest science. Definitely one of the best resources available today!" --Melissa Orlov, author of The Couple's Guide to Thriving with ADHD
