I like this book because it is so reassuring for me as a parent. I found the Behavior therapy ideas very helpful as well as the information on medications. I was surprised to find that it even gives you ideas on how to respond to well-meaning friends and relatives when they try to give advise. It is written in an easy to read format and there are a lot of helpful charts in every chapter as well as a question and answer section. It has been and will continue to be a valuable resource in my home.

That's because, unlike most books like this which are essentially one person's opinion, this book is, purely and simply, a summary of the medical evidence to date. This is the first book I read after my own son was diagnosed with ADHD last fall.

I really liked the focus of this book. Instead of dedicating most of the book to diagnosis and biology, there was a through-the-years approach that was useful to me.

Now that my son is 12, I'm starting to worry about the long-term implications of ADHD. This is a book I'd like to have in my personal collection so I can re ...more
