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