"While rooted in science, this book goes far beyond the typical clinical explanations to get to the heart of the matter: living with AD/HD. Real people living with AD/HD will understand and embrace Dr. Brown's 'AD/HD Syndrome' and identify themselves and their loved ones on every page."-Evelyn Polk Green, Attention Deficit Disorder Association

"A timely, practical and much-needed text on a medical problem of enormous importance heretofore clouded by public misconception, scientific uncertainty and uninformed political debate. Brown provides us with a welcome entry into a lucid empirical discussion of the subject. His clinical rationale is exquisitely attuned to both the critical assessment of statistical fact and the unique human situation of each patient."-Joaquin M. Fuster, University of California, Los Angeles

"This book provides a vivid and lucid description of the many and varied signs and symptoms of ADHD across the lifespan; as a clinical resource, it will be useful to mental health professionals and lay readers."-Martha Bridge Denckla, The Kennedy Krieger Institute, Johns Hopkins University

"A fine book, rich with clinical anecdotes that provide great insight into ADD/ADHD. . . . It demonstrates why ADHD is a far more profound disorder of cognitive development than many people believe. Dispelling many myths about the disorder and its treatment, this book provides scientifically based recommendations for the management of the disorder. . . . Well done and well worth reading."-Russell A. Barkley, Ph.D., SUNY Upstate Medical School
