Although most of the news coverage on ADHD is about children, research is showing that up to 50% of the adult population is also affected by ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder). Often several members of a family suffer from the symptoms, which disrupt life at home, social life, schoolwork, and daily performance on the job. Christians are not exempt from ADHD, but their faith in Jesus Christ is an invaluable lifeline. In this book, John Timmerman approaches ADHD from a strongly Christian point of view, combining medical information, common sense advice for daily living, and spiritual hope.

Timmerman has done an excellent job of covering the first and second-blush-million-questions that crop up when considering the diagnosis of ADHD in either an adult or child. He offers hope in a landscape of fear. This isn't a common 'how-to' book of self-diagnosis but rather one that puts you into the head of those affected, to understand and feel the difficulties.
