    Finally, a practical reader friendly guide to coping with ADHD

    Practical advice for Parents and Teachers. Excellent ideas,fresh new approaches, and hope for exhausted Parents. I would strongly suggest that anyone who deals with an ADHD child read and keep this book as a handy desktop reference.

    more from this reviewer

    sort of like a twist to the movie ┬┐Office Space.com┬┐

    In 1998, to his horror Mike Daisey realized he needed a job if he was to support his habits of visiting cafes and participating in theater. When Amazon.com offered work, Mike accepted figuring this new adventure was perfect for a professional slacker (not hacker) like him. Mike tells his adventures as a lousy employee at the firm. He takes no prisoners as he deletes management and the entire dot com community with its so-called new economy. However, while doing what others have done before him, Mike also tears himself down with self-deprecating humor. Except for an unnecessary, out of character nasty ¿email¿ at the end, 21 DOG YEARS: DOING TIME @ AMAZON.COM is an amusing, meandering look sort of like a twist to the movie ¿Office Space.com¿. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Not Just for Dot-Commers and Cube-Dwellers

    There have been many books about the dot-com 'revolution,' but most have been written by still-rich CEOs of failed ventures who seem to have forgotten about the hundreds of people who worked below them, or else have been business analyses of what went wrong. Though I did not work at a dot-com, many of my peers did, and I was interested in reading something that captured more of the heart of the experience for the average employee. Daisey has done this beautifully. As its cover promises, this book is really funny--I found myself laughing out loud on the subway! But it also is quite moving and honest. His story of being seduced by the dream of a better life just around the corner, just out of reach, is all too believable. It captures an important moment in the life of my generation, the total fall-out of which we've all yet to see.
