If you are dealing with ADD or have a loved one with any form of ADD this book will help you work out some of the symptoms you are encountering.
Dr. Amen's clinic in America is far ahead of much of Europe and this book helped us to identify some of the issues which are not generally recognised yet here in mainland Europe. Germany & Austria officially don't recognise this as an adult issue.
Many people seem to know ADHD but that is only 1 of 6 versions identified in this book. Very in-depth studies as to the difference, SPECT scans showing each different type's affect on brain function and good indication of causes and cures.
He looks to dietary, medical and behaviour management to find solutions.
It's not easy reading but comprehensive.
You can do Dr. Amen's questionnaire online (Google search Dr. Amen & ADD test) first if just trying to do some basic research. The book will explain more about the online results (test also in the book).
This book is a Godsend if you are trying to muddle through with a loved one who is not correctly diagnosed and is walking in condemnation from society for not conforming to their vision of life.
