Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Impulsivity, hyperactivity, inattention and distractability—words that ring a bell? For the estimated six million Americans suffering from Attention Deficit Disorder, such words interfere with daily life! For another 40 million people, such words alone make them think they have ADD.

A disorder that doesn't go away on its own, ADD turns untreated children into frustrated adults. And, adults who have children with ADD, probably have it as well. From the co-authors of Migraines: What Works! and Back Pain: What Works! (both Prima), comes Adult ADD—The Complete Handbook. Although ADD books have appeared on bestseller lists before, this is the first ADD book ever written by neurologists.

In simple and friendly terms, co-authors David Sudderth and Joseph Kandel offer help to those leading frustrating lives. They provide coping mechanisms, both psychological and an up-to-date guide to the latest technology that people with ADD will benefit from. In addition to providing a list of primary ADD symptoms and theoretic causes, the handbook also:

·Suggests where they should start and which doctor they should choose

·Explains which medicines (including Ritalin) are effective for ADD treatment

·Offers complimentary treatments, such as changing sleep habits and diet, counseling, and biofeedback

·Provides self-help strategies and coping mechanisms for daily problems

Synopsis:

More than 40 million Americans may suffer from the indecision and problems with concentration that characterize adult attention deficit disorder (ADD). Two leading neurologists explain what adult ADD is and how to cope with it, especially with technological assistance — the personal computer, beepers, special watches, and more.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 231-242) and index.
