    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.

    Story
    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.

    In Coming to Our Senses, cognitive scientist Viki McCabe argues that prevailing theories of perception, cognition, and information cannot explain how we know the world around us. Using scientific studies and true stories, McCabe shows that the ecological disasters, political paralysis, and economic failures we now face originate in our tendency to privilege cognitive processes and products over the information we access with our perceptual systems.

    The narration was a good match for the serious subject matter without making it seem trivial or too complex to follow.
