Product Description

From the Author

Particular emphasis on our educational system
While this book is probably the most wide-ranging I've written on ADHD, it also goes deepest into what's wrong with our educational system, how it got that way, and what we can do about it. This was my favorite ADHD book to write and, while it's not a "self-help" book like "Success Stories" or "Healing ADD," many people have told me it's the most thought-provoking and has the greatest potential for transformation of the ways we treat ADHD children and adults, both in schools and the world at large.

By A Customer on 14 May 1999
Format: Paperback
So many books look at ADD as a "problem" that must be diagnosed and dealt with. Thom Hartmann looks at ADD another way, a way that makes a lot of sense! This book is a MUST read for anyone who has ADD or anyone who knows someone with ADD and wants to understand. The Hunter/Farmer explanation puts it all into perspective. I am an adult with ADD, and the parent of a child with ADD. I often use Hartmann's theory when explaining ADD to other people. It is positive and empowering.

This book really drills deep into the topic of ADD - why we're seeing it, what it is, why so many diagnoses, what can be done. Very impressive depth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, A Real Explanation About ADD/HD 26 Jun. 2000
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Far be it for me to even read a book. At 41, I started and run a public company. My 10 year old son was diagnosed with ADHD at age 4. This book not only helped me understand my son, it helped me understand myself. The result, I finally understood a logical explanation on why I thought I was different for so many years, and my son and I have never been closer. The challenges and the theories found in the book are incredible. I felt I was reading an explanation of how I think and act (or react). I wasn't looking for something to believe in, or to justify certain behaviors. However, almost every sentence drew me closer to the edge of my chair - just to see how my son and I operate. Thank you Dr. Hartmann!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Buy 16 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book does a great job of explaining the symptoms of ADD.
The explanations are detailed, well written and easy to read. Recommend this book for anyone, if they want to really understand ADD.
This book has a special ability to make a non-ADD person empathize with the behavioral aspects of an ADD person.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Positive View of ADD 19 Feb. 2003
By Dale Susan Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Gives various reasons for ADD, some traditional and some not as traditional. Very helpful to the self-image of people with ADD and clarifies that society is part of the problem. Some key points include;
1) Education is conditioning and is particularly hostile to children with ADD.
2) ADD is now an industry with victimization and illness now fashionable.
3) The industrialized world provides an environment particularly challenging for people with ADD for reasons such as lack of exercise, lack of exposure to sunlight and too much television.
