Review

2019 READERS' FAVORITE GOLD MEDAL
- Non-Fiction/Parenting
"...funny and deeply profound. ...blows open the lid on mental illness, confronting the issues and making them far more accessible."
2018  INDIE READER DISCOVERY AWARD WINNER
- Psychology/Mental Health
"Frank South's memoir about the challenges of struggling with ADHD since his 1950's childhood is powerful ...this is an important work that teachers, school administrators and social service personnel should read ...South's book is an impressive achievement."   
2018 NEXT GENERATION INDIE BOOK AWARD WINNER
- Memoirs - Personal Struggle/Health Issues
"South reports his family life with honesty and aplomb... Touching, funny and inspiring, this memoir captures the joys and tensions of living with mental illness."
2018 LIVING NOW BOOK AWARD WINNER
Gold - Inspirational Memoir - Male
2018 HUMAN RELATIONS INDIE BOOK AWARD WINNER
Gold -  Family Challenges  
Silver - Health Memoir
"...the author's retelling of his lifelong struggle with ADHD - and how his disability shaped his life experiences, leading him to countless self-discoveries - is fresh, thoughtful, and compelling. - The BookLife Prize
"...well structured and congenial, re-creating dialogue  and everyday family life in a relatable manner. Those with a family history of ADHD should especially enjoy these wry autobiographical writings." -  Kirkus Review, RECOMMEND 
"A gripping narrative in large part because of South's brutal honesty. ...filled with drama, tension, frustration, temper flare ups, and love as South copes with anxiety and short-term memory problems, while trying to guide and support his children through their own life battles with ADHD.  ...South's self-effacing humor and humility that will keep you turning the pages." - Self-Publishing Review, 4Stars
"...wonderful, touching, moving, funny... a heartwarming and poignant memoir."
  - Official Review, Online Book Club 

From the Back Cover

Praise for Frank South
For Pay Attention
"...hilarious, instructive and poignant, a funny and bittersweet tale of someone who, while not conquering them, has at least been able to keep his demons in check."                  
- LA Weekly
 
"Playwright Frank South's engrossing autobiographical solo show explores that unexpectedly shifting border that lies between the twin no man's lands of genius and madness."
- Backstage
 
For 2 by South
"Mr. South creates folksy, Middle American characters - then squeezes and squeezes them until they start to spurt blood."
New York Times
