I felt this book was very helpful and informative. It was a compact explanation that was easy to read and comprehend for stressed-out parents. Different forms of ADHD were covered. Dr. Handelman discusses medication, diet, and supplements that may help. I felt the book was well-rounded.
Dr. Handelman also covers and debunks many myths about ADHD and addresses the confusion and guilt that parents may feel as they may run into roadblocks when seeking the best solutions for their child/teen.
I recommend this book for anyone with ADHD or who has a child or teen with ADHD. It is well written, easy to read and a practical reference tool rather than just a one time read. I would purchase it again.

I really enjoyed how this book was written in a conversational way that easily held my attention. I have a strong suspicion I have ADD too! I have read other books about this topic. Actually, to be honest, I've half read said books, as they were too technical. And although I really want to learn, the writing style was, in my son's favourite word: boring.
Dr. Kenny, thank you so much for writing a simple to understand book about a topic that is anything but simple.
