Attention Deficit Disorder: A Different Perception Reviews
This book was recommended to me as a way to self diagnose whether I have ADD, in particular by looking at the criteria he discusses starting on pg. 15. (The Hallowell-Ratey criteria, which can be found for free online, although with less discussion)
Well worth 8+ stars. This book is informative, well well-written and gives insights into ADD like no other books about ADD besides those also written by Tom Hartmann. He has an excellent way of explaining to the reader, regardless of background, what ADD is and that it isn't an illness, just a different way of thinking. He provides useful ways to work with it so those with ADD and/or the people affected by it can be a successful part of society. Highly recommended for everyone directly or indirectly affected by ADD. Very worthwhile read.
Thom's theory on ADD being a remnant of our Hunter/Gatherers has been proven to be Scientific Fact.(Check out The Seven Daughters of Eve by Bryan Sykes).
One of the best books I have ever read. I was crying theought the book because it explained so much as to why I do certain things. Anyone who thinks they may have ADD or ADHD needs to read this. It is incredible
Your reviewers experience: a few short years ago my youngest son was in real trouble. Skipping school and failing I had him tested at his therapist's request. Near genius IQ. In eight grade his math aptitude (which he failed through most of school) was above 12th grade. He was miserable and so was our family. In search of answers he was diagnosed as ADD. It was a dark dark time for me to the point I believed I might lose this child.
A nice, different approach to not medicating ADHD kids.
