Through vivid stories of the experiences of their patients (both adults and children), Drs. Hallowell and Ratey show the varied forms ADD takes - from the hyperactive search for high stimulation to the floating inattention of daydreaming - and the transforming impact of precise diagnosis and treatment.

I loved this book. I cried many times realizing my biofeedback doctor's suspicions have merit. I ''ve been diagnosed with at least 4 other issues. I think this doctor is right. I've scheduled to see a doctor now who specializes in ADD. It's worth looking into. I did have to back up several times to comprehend, but that's not unusual.
This book helps build a strong bridge of relating to the person w/ADD ... this book also reminded me of information that I had forgotten - after 18 years of parenting a child,now young adult living w/ADD. Excellent reader and extremely informational.
The narrator was AMAZING!!!
The book very informative and detailed. The dark maze of ADHD sooo clearly explained and with great details. Thank you for your efforts to write this book for us.
Still a great listen many years after it's initial release. Dr. Hallowell takes the shame and stigma out of having ADHD that so many other authors keep trying to put back in by denying ADHD or distracting readers from it's seriousness. Instead, Hallowell, who knows ADHD personally as well as professionally, offers a hopeful, encouraging perspective. Not as advanced as later works (including his own) but still a fine introduction to people who've been recently diagnosed.
