Understand ADDUnderstanding Girls With AD/HD / by Kathleen G. Nadeau, Ellen Littman, Patricia O. Quinn

A super useful book!, Reviewer: A reader from New Jersey: "As the mother of an 8-year-old ADHD girl, I can't recommend this book enough. It has been totally invaluable in learning to understand and love her (and all her quirks - like chewing on her hair and clothes -- who would have thought that was ADHD related? ) Furthermore, in addition to very valuable and practical information I can use now for her while she is in elementary school, there are sections that I know I will come back to (or read to anticipate) what will go on as she grows older. I think of this book as the "what to expect when you are expecting" book for living with ADHD girls! This is a great book and I, for one, am very grateful that the authors have written this."


ADDed dimensionThe Added Dimension : Celebrating the Opportunities, Rewards, and Challenges of the Add Experience / by Kate Kelly, Peggy Ramundo, D. Steven Ledingham

The authors of the national bestseller You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Stupid or Crazy?! return with a book that celebrates the special skills, insights, and challenges of adults with attention deficit disorder -- ADD. With wise, clear eyes and well-developed senses of humor, Kate Kelly, Peggy Ramundo, and D. Steven Ledingham look at the experience of ADDults. Their life- and self-affirming message is that ADD isn't just a disorder, but a different way of thinking. And different doesn't mean worse: it often means better, especially where energy and creativity are concerned. Without minimizing the difficulties ADDers face, they offer encouragement, inspiration, and guidance for dealing with everyday situations and taking advantage of the positive aspects of ADD.


ADD fogOut of the Fog : Treatment Options and Coping Strategies for Adult Attention Deficit Disorder / by Kevin R. Murphy, Suzanne Levert

FROM BOOKLIST: Murphy, chief of the adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, aided by medical writer LeVert, discusses the recent recognition of attention deficit disorder as a problem that is not outgrown in adolescence, and they cogently summarize the stumbling blocks this affliction creates in the pursuit of a career or attainment of a healthy family life. Other books, such as Hallowell and Ratey's Driven to Distraction (1994) and Kelly and Ramundo's You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Stupid, or Crazy? (1993), have done excellent jobs in alerting readers to ADHD as an issue in adult lives. But Murphy and LeVert's coverage of psychological and medicinal treatment is invaluable. An essential library item. Denise Perry Donavin


Healing ADDHealing ADD : Simple Exercises That Will Change Your Daily Life / by Thom Hartmann, Thom Hartman, Richard Bandler

The author, Thom Hartmann states: "The simplistic blurb from the publisher's PR flack about this book is *wrong*: it's not about "positive thinking" or "visualizations." The original working title of the book was "Healing from the Pain of Growing Up a Hunter in a Farmer's World," but the publisher shortened it. This book is filled with some of the most powerful and transformational real-world techniques available, derived from neuro-linguistic programming, to heal pain, drop away useless habits, and help ADHD people regain control of their lives as well as their self-esteem. Of all the books on ADHD I've written, this is the most practical in terms of its "you can do this" techniques, and the most sophisticated. As well as an excellent book for parents, adults with ADD, and other lay-people, it's full of advanced techniques for psychotherapists and coaches. The book is even written in an embedded transformational language: as you read it, you'll discover that you're seeing the world in a new way, hearing new and useful internal stories, and feeling powerful and resilient. Just the simple act of reading this book will change your life. SELECTOR'S NOTE: I strongly recommend this book. I can tell you that of the ADD books in this store, this is the top seller. My husband and I have found this book to be most utilitarian.

driven to distractionDriven to Distraction: recognizing and coping with Attention Deficit Disorder from Childhood to Adulthood / Edward M. Hallowell, John J. Ratey, both M.Ds.


Through vivid stories of the experiences of their patients (both adults and children), Drs. Hallowell and Ratey show the varied forms ADD takes--from the hyperactive search for high stimulation to the floating inattention of daydreaming--and the transforming impact of precise diagnosis and treatment. This book offers practical tips on the management and treatment of ADD. The selector for this bookstore considers this book to be mandatory for those who have or deal with ADD people because it emphasizes hope and positive reinforcement as well as a wealth of information of the disease.


Honey are youHoney, are you listening?: how Attention Deficit Disorder could be affecting your marriage / Dr. Rick Fowler & Jerilyn Fowler


ADD is not a disease, and people who have it are in no way "sick." It is a difference--a big difference--in the way the brain handles information. While most people think in one-thing-at-a-time way, the ADD person takes in everything at once. Sometimes they overlook the trees because they see the forest. This can be frustrating for a non-ADD partner who doesn't understand the ADD thought process. However, communication is one area where people with ADD shine; it is well worth learning a few special skills so that you and your ADD spouse can understand each other. On a selector's note, I have read this book and I must say it offered comfort but is written from a highly religious aspect that one needs to sift through and deal with the practical suggestions which are very good.

learningADD.gif (6043 bytes) The Power of Mindful Learning / by Ellen J. Langer


The New York Times Book Review, Jacques Steinberg
In The Power of Mindful Learning, Ms. Langer, a professor of psychology at Harvard
University, seeks to deflate seven myths of learning that she contends have
undermined American education.... Ms. Langer's hard line against any concerted
memorization seems to go a bit far, particularly when applied to medical students....
Others will have an equally strong reaction, I suspect, to her argument that there is
no such thing as "basic skills." But Ms. Langer is quick to encourage the reader to be
skeptical of her ideas, because, to puncture one myth, there is often more than one
right answer...


shadow.gif (12719 bytes) Shadow Syndromes / by John J. Ratey, Catherine Johnson
Freud once said that nobody is "normal," and after reading Shadow Syndromes, you
may well be convinced of that. While more than 50 million Americans suffer from
full-fledged mental illnesses such as depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder,
millions more suffer from milder forms--yet they likely don't realize it. From chronic sadness to low self-esteem to shopping addiction to intermittent rage disorder,
compassionate authors John J. Ratey, M.D. and Catherine Johnson, Ph.D. chronicle
the often-undiagnosed (yet definitely insidious) "shadow" disorders. One of the most
eye-opening points the authors make is that men who "can't commit" to a
relationship may in fact be suffering from an unrecognized adult form of attention
deficit disorder. Shadow Syndromes is thorough, but at the same time it simplifies the technical aspects of mental illnesses--no stacks of footnotes or complicated neurotransmitter charts here. The authors use plenty of anecdotes to illustrate how everyday people have recognized and overcome shadow syndromes. They also prevent the book from becoming one big bundle of bad news by stressing that these disorders are treatable with medications such as Prozac, which Johnson took to handle her mild depression. Specific lifestyle changes are also advised, including more sleep, changes in diet, and more exercise. The "Care and Feeding of the Brain" chapter compiles other empowering, healing approaches. This book will be valuable not only for those who believe they're suffering from a shadow syndrome, but for doctors and therapists as well. --Erica Jorgensen


Women with Attention Deficit Disorder addresses the millions of withdrawn little girls
and chronically overwhelmed women with ADD who go undiagnosed because they
don't fit the stereotypical notion of people with ADD. They are not fast-talking,
hyperactive, non-attentive, and they are not male. Though the book focuses on ADD, much of what is said also applies to women with ADHD - Attention Deficit
Hyperactivity Disorder. Introduction by Kate Kelly and Peggy Ramundo, authors of
You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Crazy or Stupid? Foreword by John J. Ratey, MD, co-author
of Driven to Distraction
