A life changer
on February 15, 2010
This book changed my life as, after 13 years of struggling with my son over behaviours that I did not understand but wished to support, an explanation for the experiences we had had unfolded on these pages. Gabor Mate writes a research-based piece that is much more comprehensive and human than any other source I have read on the subject of ADHD. I have gone on to read all of the other books that Gabor Mate has written, and although they seem to be on different topics, he has a magical way of intertwining his subject matters, bringing a human face to sometimes seemingly hopeless and tragic situations and his heart and soul comes through his writing. I have also seen him speak live - he is truly one of our great Canadians who is contributing to helping us understand and build a healthier society.
