Kramer, M.D., author of Listening to Prozac 
 
“This is an important and much-needed book! Wise, practical, and reassuring.” —Jane M. Healy, Ph.D., author of Endangered Minds and Different Learners

This should be considered a must-read for those that have ADHD. A strong overview of everything you should know once you've been diagnosed. The chapter on family dynamics was eerily accurate. Not a lot of the book focuses in depth coping mechanisms or where to go beyond diagnosis, but what an awesome place to start. I've already recommended it to others and just finished it today.

Compassionate, educational, and thorough examination of ADHD. I can't recommend it more highly!

This book provided excellent insights in the condition of ADD. It is written for everyone and clearly provides value understanding of the extremely troubling experiences associated with this condition. As a clinical social worker, working with many adolescents and adults living with ADD, in combination with many other serious disorders, I have gained a much better understanding of each individual's experience and adaptive difficulties. i would rank this book as comparable in its value with Gabor Mate's book Scrambled minds although it provides a somewhat different perspective.
