Format: Paperback
My husband and I both found Dr. Phelan's book to be a thorough discussion of ADD/ADHD from diagnosis to treatment. Dr. Phelan writes in simple English without complicated medical terms and with a sense of humor. This book is easily read in a short time.

Format: Paperback
Good book that started out promising- showing a synopsis of life for each person related to an ADD kid, including the kid himself. Some of the book was overly simplistic, though. For example, I agree with the reviewer who said that Phelan's constant referral to ADD kids as "obnoxious" is insensitive, as is his blaming ADD for causing parents to divorce. He also says that a high IQ is better for overcoming ADD, which may be true in regards to finding employment, but he doesn't acknowledge the depression that can occur from being highly intelligent and not being able to do anything with that intelligence, do to difficulty concentrating and staying on task. He also doesn't seem to realize that IQ tests probably aren't accurate for ADD kids in the first place, because of aforementioned concentration trouble. I did find the 1-2-3 magic discipline method helpful, though, but it probably would only work if the kid isn't in a state of emotional overarousal.

Dr. Phelan's writing is clear and to the point. He does an excellent job of giving suggestions to teachers for classroom management. However, I was offended by his use of the term "ADD kid" and his repeated description of these kids' behavior as "obnoxious" throughout his book. I was looking to possibly use this book as a basic text for a seminar on children with disabilities I am designing, but this lack of sensitivity will prevent me from adopting his book.

Format: Paperback
The problem with books like this is: many readers feel that by having ingested the information, they've become experts, and feel duty-bound to begin diagnosing friends, relatives, co-workers.... (Nurses and teachers are particularly guilty of this pompous and assumptive behavior.) It's my opinion that the self-tests, lists of possible symptoms, etc. included in this book were intended by the author to underscore POSSIBILITIES, not absolutes. It's extremely dangerous to think that just because you've read this book (or one like it) you have what it takes to diagnose ADD and/or ADHD. It is your duty to ask yourself if the person who has read this book has been trained to make such a diagnosis. Is s/he a specialist in the field? Has s/he been educated to recognize the true signs and symptoms of the disorder? If not, get thee to a REAL doctor, quickly! Just because these so-called self-important 'professionals' have 'nurse' or 'teacher' associated with their names does not make them experts in all things medical. (A know-it-all is still just a know-it-all, no matter what 'title' we've given them.) On behalf of this author and others like him, I strongly urge readers NOT to accept the cock-eyed advice of a wanna-be professional who may read this book.
