My wife and I are both physicians
who've managed children with ADD/ADHD,
but our professional experience is
dwarfed by our personal experience.
In this domain we are experts.
There are two books that stand out
amongst all the hundreds we've scanned
and the dozens we've studied. One is 'The
Explosive Child' by Ross Greene.
The other is this book. It's not the
best organized or structured book; it's a
bit scattered and tangential. It's
speculative in places and not
"evidence based". The writer is
not as polished as Greene, the style is
more like a business book than an
academic book. All which is to say that
the author writes like he really does
No matter, the book works. It's the
best source of ideas and insight we've
come across in years. I'm particularly
intrigued by the focus on deficits in
working memory; I think he's right about
the importance of this particular
disability and it's not been a major
topic of research until recently.
It's also very optimistic and
encouraging for parents and family. A
quick read, I'd recommend buying copies
for teachers and grandparents.
