Understanding 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."
The Added Dimension : Celebrating the Opportunities, Rewards, and Challenges of the Add Experience / by Kate Kelly, Peggy Ramundo, D. Steven Ledingham
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.
Out of the Fog : Treatment Options and Coping Strategies for Adult Attention Deficit Disorder / by Kevin R. Murphy, Suzanne Levert
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 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.

~*NOTE: SELECTOR'S CHOICE FOR EVERYONE'S LIBRARY*
Driven to Distraction: recognizing and coping with Attention Deficit Disorder from Childhood to Adulthood / Edward M. Hallowell, John J. Ratey, both M.Ds.
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 you listening?: how Attention Deficit Disorder could be affecting your marriage / Dr. Rick Fowler & Jerilyn Fowler
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.
