4.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Larry Silver's Advice to Parents on ADHD June 18, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This was one of the first books that I read after discovering that my daughter had ADHD and also LD. I found Dr. Silver's book very thorough and very readable. I particularly liked and appreciated the chapter on dealing with ADHD in the family. So many of the other books seem to focus solely on school and homework issues when ADHD effects all aspects of a child's life.
I highly recommend this book to any parent with questions about ADHD and related issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful resource June 6, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for personal needs as I struggle with my son with ADHD. I wish for him to be successful and be able to function in society. This book gave me additional perspectives and insight. My son cannot communicate well with me so I am constantly searching for resources that can "talk" to me about what to do.

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to follow December 5, 2000
By Trivimp
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought Dr. Silver's book on the recommendation of my daughter's pediatrician. I found it to be quite detailed and well-researched, but it was excruciatingly dry and clinical. I am usually a voracious reader, but I had trouble getting through this book. It's an important reference book if you are doing detailed research, but it's probably not the first book you should tackle after you learn your child has ADD. In my opinion, a better "first book" would be "Driven to Distraction" by Edward Hallowell et al.
