    At last, it's not a mystery anymore, not subjective at all.

    I am a 50-year-old female physician with ADD and a young son with severe ADD. This book is amazing. The public gets a skewed and editorial picture of ADD and its treatment. Now we have the concrete information to do a better job of treatment and hopefully dispel the misinformation. There were pieces here that no one else had connected. It also explained why there is so much variety in ADD. WE are not all the same - unlike the stereotypes the lay public has in mind.

    The First Book For The ADD-er! The Fog is Gone!

    I am a 24 year-old Mechanical Engineer that was having a heck of a time in college, but after self sought treatment got over a 3.5 in my last 2 quarters and graduated with 2.9. I investigated myself during that time. After reading substacial chunks of ADD books, I was still missing an explaination for what was broken (how I was different/similar), and an understanding of my treatment program in comparison with others ADD-ers. Although my treatment made a world of difference, it was not until I read Dr. Amen's 'Healing ADD' (6 types) that I finally realized that the whole process and affliction could be rationalized and simplified so that those of us without a Phd. can see the part that's broken and how it is fixed. Granted ADD not always clear cut, but this book breaks it down so that at the very least it is presented that way. For Example: 'If your ADD brain has this type, part1 is over-stimulated, and part2 is under-stimulated. Since part1 controls this(or that) you would seem like person1... ... For ADD of this type you would take this class of meds, but watch out for the possibiliy of this...' (I promise he makes this more interesting & simple though.) In fact, I found some answers in his book I had yet to discover. Honestly, your psychiatrist might not need to have read this book to treat you, but I wish I had it back then, and I am glad to have it now. Although I am not a mental health professional, I would guess that the presentation style implied would be a useful tool to help the ADD-er identify, and make their ADD and treatment more clear to them. While 4 types may not be in the DSM or accredited by the APA, I would be willing to bet they soon will be! Good Luck, and never give up!

    Excellent Read for any parent who's child has been diagnosed with ADD

    This is an excellent book that goes into great detail about ADD. It's the first book I have read that goes beyond the clinical hyper or inattention aspects of the disorder. It gives parents an excellent resource and peace of mind about how they can successfully help their children.

    For Parents, Educators, and Physicians

    This book will give the reading an indepth insight into the characteristics of the ADD person. Parents will be better able to understand their ADD child. Teachers can better empathize and adapt their curriculum to their ADD students. Physicians can better advise and direct parents of ADD children. ADD adults can find their type of ADD, learn about it, and then order their life according to their needs. Excellent information for anyone who needs to know more about this subject.
