    "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.

    "Some new information but not as comprehensive as expected"

    The beginning of the book was amazing with a lot of scientific background and explanations, history and background of the diagnosis of the disease where amazing too, but once it got to the treatment options basically it was two paragraphs with list of things that can be done for ADD with no theft of discussion or scientific background which is unusual for someone who has 50 years of experience. The last recommendations are in every other book or brochures, Believe me I have read more than six or seven of them so far and participate in the webinars and all the new findings that come off the press . I Expected more of a coaching option for approaching the kids in different situations but unfortunately this just listed things that can be done. In a very broad spectrum . What I learned the most about was how to approach the diagnosis with the child and give them the self-confidence that they lack in order to encourage them to be better individuals and not to be discouraged. I also had myself and my child take the Kolbe index that was recommended in the book but the parents guide in the youth test was not helpful at all so I'm not sure the $45 that I spent for myself and $45 that I spent for my child were worth it either. They didn't give me any information about myself or my son that we did not know about.

    "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.


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

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


    Any additional comments?

    Have already recommended to others.

    "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.

    "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.

    "too repetitive"

    First half was good, short examples were helpful for identification. But launched into long stories with unnecessary details and repeated himself way too much. RaceCar brain - we got the joke the first five times. In his defense, he did say he was ADD, but people with ADD don't have enough attention span for an ADD person's long repetitious detailed stories.

    "A great place to start if you have a child recently diagnosed."

    As a mom to a son who toes the line with ADHD, this book was a terrific way to streamline my handling of the diagnosis as a parent. I want to literally hug the author/narrator for "getting" my kid.

    "Exceptionally good advice."

    Just one star down for the impression that the stance of this book appears to dismiss the stance of Dr Barkley, another expert in the field of ADHD. I have also heard similar from Dr Barkley dismissing any notion that ADHD could ever be considered a gift.

    I believe the two (three) experts compliment each other in ways that they cannot recognise themselves as they are wrapped up/invested in their own approaches.

    This book is a wonderful resource for getting the best all round help for children with ADHD. Dr Barkley's information about the realities of the deficits involved and the very real problems they can lead to if not addressed is equally valid and he gives very accurate and good advice. This is a classic case of the approaches and information provided by each, when considered together, being way greater than the sum of the parts. Thank you both for providing excellent resources.
