Top Customer Reviews
With a combination of rock-solid scientific research and accessible anecdotes, Dr. Brown removes the clutter from understanding the cluttered ADD mind. He debunks myths systematically, and more importantly offers enlightening explanations that can provide real help.
Serious professionals will identify Dr. Brown as an accomplished expert who clearly speaks their language, while those seeking guidance for their own ADD, or for a loved one, will be able to learn a great deal. I am not someone who is majoring in psychology and have only a limited background with the terminology, and I found the book to be written at a level someone of my experience could understand. I would advise those interested in learning about ADD to pick it up and give it careful consideration.
