The book offers science-based answers—in plain, understandable language—to a wide variety of questions about ADHD that are often raised not only by adolescents and adults in the general public, but also by professionals in pediatrics, general medicine, psychiatry, psychology, nursing, education and other related fields. The book is structured in an accessible, even entertaining way, with each chapter posing an important question about ADD/ADHD, and then providing answers, discussion, and pertinent research and references.

Reviews and Endorsements:

This brilliant book by a superb clinician-researcher compresses a wealth of vital, practical information into a marvelously user-friendly and engaging format. It's chock-full of everything anyone interested in ADHD wants to know, arranged in such a way that you can find what you want and will never be bored.—Edward Hallowell, M.D., author of Driven to Distraction and other books

Out of the Box is arguably the best practical book ever written on ADHD. Brown persuasively conveys that ADHD appears in many forms across the lifespan—and sets the record straight in terms of its linkage with core problems in working memory, emotion regulation, activation, and motivation. Laden with compelling case examples that humanize this condition, the writing is both authoritative and readable. Overall, the book masterfully blends the underlying science related to ADHD with extremely helpful guidance for assessment and treatment. It is a must-read for anyone dealing with ADHD.—Stephen P. Hinshaw, Phvsaa.D., Professor, Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley

Outside the Box offers an accessible update on the latest research about ADHD and answers questions and doubts that many struggle with about this disorder which is very prevalent in children and adults all over the world.—Sandra Kooij, M.D., Ph.D., Chair, European Network Adult ADHD
