Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—Following a brief introduction, this volume contains 14 short articles on ADHD, current treatments, and controversies. While most of the articles are based on research studies, a few opinion pieces are featured as well. Some of the chapters are aimed directly at adolescents who have been diagnosed with ADHD, offering suggestions on how to succeed in school and at home with this disorder. Others are aimed at a larger audience and could be used for research projects. The selections are by a multitude of authors, and there is no attempt to dumb down the sophisticated writing of the world of scientific journalism. The book has an open format, and the text is interspersed with photographs, charts, and multicolored text. Some attempt is made to represent multiple ethnic backgrounds in the photographs, but most show white males, with a lesser number of white females. A useful resource for students with ADHD and their parents and teachers is appended.—Wendy Smith-D'Arezzo, Loyola College, Baltimore, MD
