I know a lot about boys with ADHD. I have worked with hundreds of them, we raised one, and I was one. I found Raising Boys With ADHD to be filled with insights, information and information that would be extraordinarily useful for parents who are facing the daunting--but rewarding--job of guiding a child with ADHD through the shoals of boyhood.
The book offers practical advice and up-to-date information on this puzzling disorder. Beyond merely defining the problems, the authors provide solutions and strategies. This book will go a long way in enhancing your knowledge and parenting techniques. Read this book. Keep it close by. Refer to it. Reread it. Its contents will help you to better understand the needs of your "unhappy wanderer." --Richard D. Lavoie, The Motivation Breakthrough
Raising Boys with ADHD is a reasoned and reasonable, practical and inspirational guide for parents focused on preparing boys with ADHD to transition successfully into a happy, functional and emotionally healthy adult life. Forgan and Richey are experienced clinicians, deftly blending their knowledge of science and experience to create a practical, readable and useful guide for parents of boys with ADHD. This volume will be on my short list of books I recommend to parents of children with ADHD. --Dr. Sam Goldstein, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Attention Disorders
The book is informational and action-oriented: terms are explained, and current research and treatment options are explored in language that parents can understand, use with their sons, and disseminate to others. --Publishers Weekly, March 19, 2012

They are also very candid to tell parents that there are risks to Not medicating a child who is struggling to focus in all of life's parts.
My struggle was also with whether my son was just "being a boy", immature, inattentive (ADHD), or if it was my parenting causing his behavior. They deal with all of this as you read through the book. Its a very easy ready, too. Not cumbersome and wordy like many books.
You will be glad you bought it if you have questions like I did.
