Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A leading expert in the assessment and treatment of Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder dispels myths and offers reassuring, practical information about treatments. Drawing on recent findings in neuroscience and a rich variety of case studies from his own clinical practive, Dr. Thomas E. Brown describes what ADD syndrome is, how it can be recognized at different ages, and how it can best be treated.

This is the first book to address the perplexing question about ADD: how can individuals, some very bright, be chronically unable to andldquo;pay attention,andrdquo; yet be able to focus very well on specific tasks that strongly interest them? Dr. Brown disputes the andldquo;willpowerandrdquo; explanation and explains how inherited malfunctions of the brainandrsquo;s management system prevent some people from being able to deal adequately with challenging tasks of childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. His book is an authoritative and practical guide for physicians and psychologists, parents and teachers, and the 7 to 9 percent of persons who suffer from ADD/ADHD.

Synopsis:

Dr. Brown sets forth a bold new  understanding of ADD/ADHD and offers compelling examples of the daily life challenges it presents for children, adolescents, and adults.

"Thorough and compassionate. Consider it essential reading if you are concerned about a child or an adult who may be struggling with this syndrome."—Mary Beth Regan, Baltimore Sun

"This intelligent book does a better job of explaining AD/HD than any book in recent memory. It’s a must-read for anyone with an interest in AD/HD, whether of a personal or professional nature."—Kathleen Nadeau, ADDitude Magazine
