Summary "Through vivid stories and case histories of patients--both adults and children ... [the authors] explore the varied forms ADHD takes, from hyperactivity to daydreaming. They dispel common myths, offer practical coping tools, and give a thorough accounting of all treatment options as well as tips for helping a diagnosed child, partner, or family member. But most importantly, they focus on the positives that can come with this 'disorder'--including high energy, intuitiveness, creativity, and enthusiasm"--P. [4] of cover.
