I found this book informative with very current, new ideas. I knew that ADD ran in our family but after reading this book, I realize that there are manifestations of it that I had never considered ADD. Now I realize that even more of us have this condition. We present with diverse symptoms, abilities and coping strategies but according to this book they are caused by the same types of brain problems. That makes very good sense to me. It explains a great deal. I am 63 years old and have known 6 generations of my family from my great grandfather to my grandchildren. There are some with ADD in each generation. What I used to think of as quirks I now realize are ADD traits. This book has allowed me to be gentler on myself and members of my family. I bought ... full review
This book has made my behavior much more explicable to me, my wife, and other relatives. If you have ADHD, or know someone who does, you'll recognize many case histories described here, but not others; ADHD takes a number of forms, and there is no single description of its effects.
The most valuable aspect of this book is that I realize that I'm not crazy, I'm not a bad person, and I'm not alone. Scratch that: the most valuable aspect of this book is that _my wife_ realizes that I'm not crazy, I'm not a bad person, and I'm not alone.
"Excellent Parenting Advice for Helping Children with ADHD" - By Jessica Anderson
The information given in this ebook is helpful for any parent of children with ADD or ADHD who is looking for guidance on detecting, diagnosing, and treating these behavioural disorders. I really found the chapter on parenting help to be especially valuable, as it contains specific and practical tips on relating to distracted children with ADD and ADHD, to help kids focus and overall improve their mental health. Great read for any parent that needs guidance in recognizing ADHD or coping with ADHD on a daily basis.
As an ADDer, ADD Coach, founder of the company that trained the world's first ADD Coaches, and co-founder of the ADD Coaching field itself, I not only recommend "Lazy/Crazy" to almost anyone who requests an ADD book recommendation, it was required reading for OFI's 2-to-3-year ADD Coach Training program since the first classes in 1994.
To answer the unasked questions: NO, I don't make a cent from this book, and NO, it was required reading for OFI's training long before I became good friends with the authors (and several years and many trainings before we began working together). Our friendship and working relationship was A RESULT of my high opinion of their excellent book, not the other way around!!!!
Kate joined the OFI staff several years after its inception, first as a TeleClass Leader, eventually became President; Peggy joined us in 1999, heading up OFI's Sliding-Scale Coaching ... full review
"12 Effective Ways to Help Your ADD/ADHD Child" - By William (Jackson, TN)
This book is superb in every respect. It's comprehensive, yet concise, well organized and reader-friendly. It contains information which parents cannot find elsewhere. Stevens is a mother and highly educated professional who is now carrying out research at Purdue University on the critically important role of essential fatty acids on children with ADHD. In this book she gives parents and professionals a step-by-step approach for helping children. In my opinion, this book will be a bestselling book for parents in the first decade of the 21st Century.

This is one of those books that is both a gift... and very upsetting. - - When I was coming up, the terms ADD and ADHD were just becoming popular... only they were becoming so popular a lot of people were having trouble taking them seriously. - - It seemed like a faddy diagnosis and an excuse to medicate any kid who the television set couldn't babysit for adequately... At that time, I should note that it was clear that I had some kind of learning disability - -yet was a supposed "gifted underachiever" - - meaning I had a supposed "borderline genius" IQ but was too "lazy", "disorganized", "unfocused" even "bored" with school work. (Back then the only treatments were "punishment", "tolerance" or counseling to deal with the "problem behaviors") Ironically enough, just after I finished HS the SIMPSON'S became popular, and the term GIFTED UNDERACHIEVER ... full review

"Great book for Mom's coming to grips with ADD in their child" - By Mom of four (St. Leonard, Calvert County, Maryland)
My now 8 year old son has been struggling in school for several years now. His teachers always indicated there was an underlying issue that kept him from being able to focus in class and follow directions. We noticed this at home too; particularly when he would be given several tasks/steps to follow. My husband and I kept telling ourselves that "he has a late birthday so he's a bit immature" or "he's a boy and they're always behind girls". We had his blood tested and found all levels were normal other than a couple of mild food allergies. We eliminated the foods from his diet but still no change in behavior.
Our son is well-behaved, loving, all boy, and smart. We figured that if he could sit and focus so intently on a video game that he could focus in the classroom; but just ... full review
"A comprehensive explaination" - By C. Bennett (Raleigh, NC USA)
I have recently been diagnosed with ADHD. My pyschatrist (a female) recommended this book. Although I'd read "Driven to Distraction" and "Delivered From Distraction," this book truly explained the disorder in its many forms and specifically how it impacts women. Sadly, I recognized myself in its pages... It gives me hope, however, to discover that I am not alone, and after years of feeling as though I haven't lived up to my potential, (I'm 29) there IS a reason why I feel this way. I can move forward with the tools (medication, structure, therapy) suggested in this book. It is a necessary component to any female ADHD/ADD patient. It is lenghtly and kind of wordy at times... It's best read in spurts or small chunks, as much of the information is dense. Take your time and read this one-- it's worth it!

"incredible coffee table book for people who can't find the coffee table!" - By Eddie Landsberg (Tokyo, Japan)
In a really well laid out and visually appealing book, Susan Pinsky takes us on a tour of our homes, and suggests ways to make cleaning them up and establishing systems to minimize the chaos and clutter... Turning to many of the pages - - empathizing with virtually ALL of the problems she identified I almost found myself chuckling then wanting to cry... I imagine that most ADD'ers have had "issues" with shame and conflict resulting for difficulty cleaning and getting organized (especially when living with other people.) Here in this book Pinsky offers solutions that center mostly around themes of practicality - - simplification and de-cluttering... A recurrent theme is never to choose an organization system because of how it looks... but rather the steps it minimizes... In the world of ADD the goal is simple and practical, not ideal and perfect... I found ... full review
