    This is an interesting summary of the medicine and social science of ADHD, and debunks much of the article du jour reporting of the media The bottom line message is that ADHD is real although proper diagnosis is required , drugs are effective, and changes in our society are causing ADHD to beof a problem It s short 168 pages before the footnotes with reasonably short chapters it would be perfect for ADHDers if wasn t also a bit dull.

    Although the book is five years old and recent data and trends render some parts of it slightly out of date, the basic premises and extensive research supporting the presentation of ADHD as a real condition that impacts millions remains valid and extensively substantiated The authors convey a clear understanding of the condition, and the impact it can have on health, relationships, education and careers They strongly emphasize the need for careful diagnosis, and make a strong case that under d Although the book is five years old and recent data and trends render some parts of it slightly out of date, the basic premises and extensive research supporting the presentation of ADHD as a real condition that impacts millions remains valid and extensively substantiated The authors convey a clear understanding of the condition, and the impact it can have on health, relationships, education and careers They strongly emphasize the need for careful diagnosis, and make a strong case that under diagnosis of the condition still remains a problem

    Extremely repetitive book marketed to a too broad audience Should have been two 10 15 page articles for curious ones and for professionals.

    It s a compact, quick read but full of hard data I think a previous reviewer described it as a book with no quick or easy answers, which I greatly appreciate bc it can be difficult to wade through various propaganda whether for or against the adhd diagnosis I just wanted some objective insight, and this book offers exactly that.

    This book does an excellent job of explaining the history and current events surrounding ADHD It is meticulously researched and clearly lays out facts vs myths with documentation to support its claims.
