Reviews

"A long-awaited, comprehensive book on ADHD that goes beyond mere clinical descriptions and background basic science to integrate the latest clinical, neurobiological and neuro-imaging findings in a manner which is both fascinating and persuasive. . . . This is an essential book on ADHD. It encompasses a broader definition of the disorder with an emphasis on cognitive, emotional and relational difficulties alongside the classic attention/hyperactivity symptoms."-Dimitrios Paschos, International Journal of Environmental Studies

"Compelling and accessible, offering sound, practical advice that many parents will be thankful for."-Junior Magazine

". . . [a] highly readable text. . . . Irrespective of which side of the debate the reader champions, there's little doubt that Brown makes a compelling case."-Tom Hodgkinson, The Lancet
Winner of the 2006 Will Solimene Award for Excellence in Medical Communication from the New England Chapter of the American Medical Writers Association
Selected for Association of American University Presses (AAUP) Books for Public and Secondary School Libraries, 2006

"Dr. Brown has written an attractive and accessible account of the way that some findings from psychological science can be applied to understanding ADHD and its impact. People struggling with problems of organising themselves and concentrating will find much here to help them know and overcome their difficulties."-Professor Eric Taylor, Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London


"While rooted in science, this book goes far beyond the typical clinical explanations to get to the heart of the matter: living with AD/HD. Real people living with AD/HD will understand and embrace Dr. Brown's 'AD/HD Syndrome' and identify themselves and their loved ones on every page."-Evelyn Polk Green, Attention Deficit Disorder Association

"Dr. Brown gives us valuable glimpses into the lives of people suffering from ADHD and explains the theory and science behind this complex disorder and the impact it can have on the lives of children, adolescents and adults. Readers will come away with new insights and a treasure trove of essential strategies to effectively manage ADHD and related conditions."-Harvey C. Parker, Ph.D., Co-founder of CHADD and author of Problem Solver Guide for Students with ADHD

"A timely, practical and much-needed text on a medical problem of enormous importance heretofore clouded by public misconception, scientific uncertainty and uninformed political debate. Brown provides us with a welcome entry into a lucid empirical discussion of the subject. His clinical rationale is exquisitely attuned to both the critical assessment of statistical fact and the unique human situation of each patient."-Joaquin M. Fuster, University of California, Los Angeles


"Tom Brown has lived and breathed-and researched and pondered-ADD for years, so it comes as no surprise that his new book is both reliable and innovative; tested and testing; authoritative and ground-breaking. This is a superb book. I recommend it highly!"-Edward Hallowell, M.D., author of Delivered from Distraction: Getting the Most Out of Life with ADD
