Editorial Reviews


"[A] reliable resource that is free of psychiatric jargon...[A]n essential reference for adults with ADHD and parents of children with ADHD that supports current standards of care with sound scientific data, provides practical parenting techniques, and may well become the 'Dr. Spock' reference for parents of children with ADHD."--J. Am. Acad. Child Adolesc. Psychiatry

"This is the ultimate volume on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder from one of America's most prominent researchers. This book provides evidence-based, scientifically sound, and user-friendly information for the millions of patients who are suffering from this disorder. Paul Wender has provided a lifesaver for individuals who have ADHD and need to know what it is, how it should be evaluated, and what are the effective treatments."-- Harold S. Koplowicz, M.D. Arnold and Debbie Simon Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and Director of the Child Study Center at New York University School of Medicine

"Wender's book is aimed at parents; its goal is to help them understand the nature of ADHD and how to manage it. It certainly achieves this....Also...useful for human resource officers and occupational psychologists, as well as for many others who work in the industry, but especially for adults who are puzzled about the origin of their problem."--Chemistry and Industry

"Dr. Wender blends a lifetime of his research, clinical experience and wisdom in this very readable, highly informative and, in fact, stimulating text. As a child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist, and one who has who has both lived with and treated people with ADHD, I can unequivocally recommend this book to both clinical and non-clinical consumers."-- Gabrielle A. Carlson, MD, Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics, State University of New York at Stony Brook

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jill Guevara on October 6, 2007
Format: Paperback
This is the best book I've read so far on ADHD. The author has done his homework. If you have been wondering if your child had ADHD, you will know for sure when you read this book. As I read this book, it was as though the author had lived in our home and wrote a book about our lives, and our struggles with raising a child with the illness. Easy read, anyone can get through it without trouble.

Format: Paperback
It is written clearly and directly. The book is well organized. It omits those long, tedious chapters on an alleged patient's problem(s) and treatment.
