Not as I hoped
The text along the top of the cover promises a book that is, among other things, brilliant, engaging and funny. It is a first person account of ADHD from the point of view of a 17 year old boy. It is concise, clearly written, full of coping tips and explanations about the illness, interwoven with stories from when the author was younger. He explains why he did did the things he did. I just read "The Quiet Room", a first person view of schizophrenia. The author detailed her inner most feelings, thoughts, emotions, pain and actions. I felt like I learned about the illness by being with her. It was fascinating. I also enjoyed "Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger's" which offers a similar experience. This is book is more for people who want to understand and cope with the illness in general.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A Great Book To Help You Understand ADHD
Many of my friends have children with ADHD, and I never felt like I fully understood it. After reading this book, I feel like I have a grasp on how to handle the ADHD that many people around me deal with. Definitely a worthy read.<BR/><BR/>No time to read the whole book?
