    "Innovative way to communicate with skiddish parent"

    I've read or listened to all of Dr. Hallowell's books and for the skiddish parent who just can't wrap thier head around the fact they or someone they're close to has ADD...this is the book to start with. If you know there's no cure, or are hesitant about pills...this is the book; he suggest the obvious, that we all know, when all else fails; love will find a way.

    "What a surprise"
    What did you love best about Superparenting for ADD?

    totally new view of ADHD - loved the excerpt describing what boy w/ADHD thought about. His description of what's important to him vice others was eye opening.

    I wanted to hear the entire book in one sitting and will listen to it again.


    Any additional comments?

    "Excellent reading"
    Where does Superparenting for ADD rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    On this topic, very close to the top.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Finally found somebody to verbalise my feelings.... As a (non-ADD) parent of two ADHD kids (22 years apart), this book has given me an understanding into how the ADD brain functions and why I think my children are brilliant while the teachers struggle to get anything out of them. A very rare and balanced approach to medication vs other treatments.

    "Great Book if You Have an ADD Child"

    Edward Hallowell is the best doctor if your child has ADD. He gives great advices, and hope- you cannot despair if your kid has ADD. Your child has a Ferrari brain with bad breaks. Easy to read, and boosts confidence.
    But, the only thing that is missing (the reason why I gave 4 stars) is because it don't dig deep about medication. But there is another book that treats about this subject, that is Delivered From Distraction, by the same author.
