Review Quotes
Maté--has done us a great service.-- He tells those of us who do not have ADD--what it is like to have [it]. Those with ADD, their loved ones and physicians will profit from reading this book. People who do not yet know they have it will have their lives transformed." -Canadian Medical Association Journal
One of the most comprehensive and accessible books about ADD. [A] well-documented but sure to be controversial book." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"[A] rare and--richly textured explanation of the complex and subtle interactions of nature and nurture in the developing personality. You won't find a drug chart or Seven Easy Steps to the Road Less Scattered here. You will find family stories, an accessible description of brain development and sound information. You will also find hope." -The Globe and Mail

Caring, sympathetic, supportive, and helpful. It [is] also an extremely well-written and engaging read." -Georgia Straight
