Editorial Reviews

Metapsychology Online Reviews
“[A]n immensely useful, helpful book. . . . When I see clients who are newly assessed with attention difficulties, and hesitant to try medications, or who have tried it and found that they do not work, or cannot be tolerated, it is useful to be able to steer them towards this book.”
Edward Hallowell
“This book is a winner! Gerbarg and Brown have written a lively, well-researched, hugely needed book on treatments for ADHD that do not involve the use of medication. The book is in no way anti-medication, but rather addresses the enormous need for reliable information as to what else people can try to help them deal with ADHD. Written by two clinicians, the book is rooted in real-life experience and is chock-full of vivid anecdotes as well as many useful, succinct tables and lists.”
Philip R. Muskin
“This book is a treasure for both healthcare professionals and the general public. The easily-read text provides a careful review of the research investigating complementary and alternative treatments for ADHD. More importantly, the authors share their wealth of clinical experience in the diagnosis and treatment of this common and disabling disorder.”
Stephen Larsen
“Gerbarg and Brown are a physician team who point the way for the mental health professional of the future . . . accessible but scholarly, redolent with care and compassion for their patients, and a balanced, even-handed treatment of a difficult subject.”
Lila Elizabeth Massoumi
“This is the book I will recommend to my patients requesting information on alternatives to medications in the treatment of ADD/ADHD. There is something in here for everyone, from the conscientious parent to the well-established practicing psychiatrist. The resources section alone is worth the price of this book. Gerbarg and Brown delve deeper into the core dysfunctions of ADD/ADHD than is currently being taught in a standard psychiatric education. Well-researched and science-based.”
Leslie Andrade
“This book inspired me with hope and encouraged and helped me to capture the joy of living with people with ADHD. I hope it does the same for you.”
