    Story

    I don't know how I am going to go on to my next book. Andrew Solomon's voice, physically and emotionally, has found its way into my soul. If you are reading this review, you know what this book is about (is it dry, you ask?), you know it is very, very long and that some people have said that his narration is flawed.

    The book has more than research; it weaves research with case studies that makes the research live and breathe and stay with you far longer than you can imagine (I usually read fiction!). It is very, very long, but I slowed the listening of it down at the very end because I couldn't bear not to be listening to these stories of profound courage. I relished its length.

    And Andrew's voice (I am calling him Andrew because he shared his story with me) brings you carefully and warmly into these people's lives while delineating his comprehensive but not boring research. He doesn't compare to Colin Firth but who's comparing? It doesn't matter because once you get the cadence down, he is telling you a startling story and he will capture you. AND he is a beautiful writer.

    I am grateful to have been able to listen to this book.

    A brilliant and utterly original thinker, Andrew Solomon's journey began from his experience of being the gay child of straight parents. He wondered how other families accommodate children who have a variety of differences: families of people who are deaf, who are dwarfs, who have Down syndrome, who have autism, who have schizophrenia, who have multiple severe disabilities, who are prodigies, who commit crimes, who are transgender.

  • "Excellent overview of ADD and ADHD"

    Would you listen to Attention Deficit Disorder again? Why?

    Well written and well narrated, this book provides a thorough introduction to the concept of ADD syndrome as a broader category than ADHD, the DSM IV diagnosis. Using keen examples from his clients/patients, Brown outlines the various ways a malfunctioning Executive Function can manifest itself and how that can complicate the lives of those with ADD or ADHD. Brown is particularly strong on outlining the differences between how the syndrome affects children, teens, young adults, and older adults.


    Any additional comments?

    As someone only diagnosed as an adult, I found the vignettes from his clients to be very helpful in recognizing how I'd been dealing with issues that I could now understand as a part of the syndrome. I would recommend this book to anyone facing a recent diagnoses of ADD, either for themselves or someone close to them.

    Myths about Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder(ADD/ADHD) abound. This disorder frequently goes unrecognized, and even when diagnosed may be inadequately treated. In this up-to-date and clearly written audiobook, a leading expert offers a new way of understanding ADD. Drawing on recent findings in neuroscience and a rich variety of case histories from his own clinical practice, Dr. Thomas E. Brown describes what ADD syndrome is, how it can be recognized at different ages, and how it can best be treated.

    While other books tell you what dyslexia is, this book tells you what to do. Dyslexics' innate skills, which may include verbal, social, spatial, kinesthetic, visual, mathematical, or musical abilities, are their unique key to acquiring knowledge. Figuring out where their individual strengths lie, and then harnessing these skills, offers an entrée into learning and excelling. And by keeping the focus on learning, not on standard reading the same way everyone else does, a child with dyslexia can and will develop the self-confidence to flourish in the classroom and beyond.

Fully one-third of men ages 22 to 34 are still living at home with their parents, about a 100 percent increase in the past 20 years. Boys nationwide are increasingly dropping out of school; fewer are going to college. Family physician and research psychologist Dr. Leonard Sax presents practical solutions.

Drug therapies, our understanding of the role of diet and exercise, even the way we define the disorder, all are changing radically. And doctors are realizing that millions of adults suffer from this condition, though the vast majority of them remain undiagnosed and untreated.

These initiatives, when geared to the preferences of each child, make them feel loved and, thus, more receptive to guidance and redirection when needed. The authors are inspiring writers whose examples and quotes from children and parents are instructive.

    This is a book in the I-Can-Do-It book series. This audiobook covers the common behavior side-effects of family alcoholism on toddlers to late teens. It also discusses what you, as the nondrinking parent, can do to reverse the side-effects. Practical guidelines put you in the driver's seat to assure your kids receive important coping skills and resilience. Children of alcoholics (CoAs) may or may not be drinkers when they grow into adulthood, but they will be tolerant to drinkers, and form bad habits.
