Product Description

About the Author

Dr. Barbara C. Fisher is the author of three prior books on ADD/ ADHD. Trained as a neuropsychologist, she has been involved in the diagnosis of ADD/ADHD for over 20 years. On the cutting edge of assessing ADD/ADHD with neuropsychological testing, she does not rely upon self-report measures for diagnosis. Rather, she has used the same comprehensive battery of tests over time to demonstrate when the problem is purely ADD Inattentive disorder and when there is the impact of additional issues beyond ADD, which has resulted in more positive effects for treatment.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book contains a great deal of interesting data, from 20 years of testing children, adolescents, and adults referred for ADHD, on a variety of neuropsychological tests and self-report measures. However, the potential purchaser should be warned that the book reads like a PhD thesis and is not worked into the more processed form, with more extended discussion, that we would normally expect in a book. Thus, most of the book (from page 29 to 415) consists of page after page of pie charts and figures - material that normally one might expect to find in an appendix rather than the main text. There is no summary or discussion of the findings and their implications! The closest to this is the two and a half page introduction, where the author presents her conclusion that the essential feature of ADHD is an attentional disorder, and that many symptoms and traits that tend to be attributed to ADHD are actually the result of additional or comorbid conditions. Whilst this is certainly a reasonably argument to pursue, she does not elaborate. Overall, I am glad Dr Fisher has published her data - an important gift to the academic community and the result of a vast amount of work over 20 years - but I just wish she had taken the time to write a little more summary and discussion of the implications of the work, and elaboration of her own view of the nature of ADHD.
