  "What a blessing this book can be to those people who have ADD, as well as their friends and relatives. It helps us to identify the symptoms of this condition and gives us hope that it can be treated. The book helps us to eliminate blame and normalizes ADD with the example of getting glasses for a nearsighted person being the same as getting treatment for ADD. There are many interesting short stories of successful treatment in the book. This book can bring relief to people with ADD and the people who care about them."
