This book is perfect for you if you are an adult and have or are starting to worry that you have attention deficit disorder, with or without the hyperactivity (ADD or ADHD). Adult ADHD: What You Need to Know takes the 10% that is actually useful from many books and puts it together in an easy to read, highly accurate and informative book. The reason this book will help you is because it was written by David, an adult who has ADHD but didn't want to get treatment. He didn't believe it was real. Or that treatment could help. He was forced to face his condition and wrote this book to help readers understand ADHD better. Because of his experience, David knows what ADHD is and the questions you may have about it. Questions like: * Is ADHD even real? Does it exist in adults? And if so, what does it look like and how do I know if I have it? * Won't anyone who takes Ritalin or Adderall get very focused? * A lot of people say that Ritalin or Adderall stops working for them. Does that actually happen? Not only does the book answer important questions in a fun, interesting and engaging way - it provides plenty of citations so you know the science is accurate. Heck, the book even has an interview in it with Dr. Ari Tuckman, Vice President of the ADD association, where he clears up many misconceptions about the condition in adults. [less]

Does your child have poor concentration and an inability to relax? Does your child do crazily reckless things that can't be explained afterwards? Has your child been diagnosed with ADHD? Are you caring for or teaching children with ADHD? Or do you have these problems yourself? Increasing numbers of children are being diagnosed as having Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. As the best available treatment for many years, they are prescribed powerful drugs that help to control (but not cure) the worst of the symptoms. However, the potential side-effects of these drugs are worrying and the long-term consequences unknown, facing doctors, parents and adult sufferers with a terrible dilemma. In Professor Puri's groundbreaking new book, you will discover a very different way of looking at ADHD. His starting point is the basis of behaviour in the chemistry of the brain and the many factors that influence this. By understanding behaviour at this level, it is possible to see how hyperactivity can be reduced and concentration improved in a natural way that is in tune with the needs of the individual. He presents the results of two major studies, with which he has been involved, that demonstrate the effectiveness of a completely natural way to treat ADHD. Read how and why EPA ('eicosapentaenoic acid') will be essential to recovery; how to take it; what dietary changes will enhance its effects; and what lifestyle changes will help you and your child to overcome the complex of symptoms that make up ADHD.

Children with ADD or ADHD can be a parenting nightmare. They can be disruptive and destructive and do not respond to guidance like other children. Medication may reduce symptoms, but disruptive behaviour often persists. Is there anything that the parent can do to create change? Based on ten years' experience working with families and their children with ADHD, this book explores the dilemmas facing parents with an ADD child. About two per cent of children in the developed world are currently receiving the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder and diagnosis rates are increasing. The true incidence may be as high as five per cent. This would mean that up to 30,000 children a year in the UK might have ADHD. Aimed at reducing the conflicts and friction that are often a part of home and school life, the author introduces the ADDapt approach to solving behaviour problems. Addapt stands for ADD alternative parenting techniques: it is a complete, practical, easy-to-follow programme to enable parents working on their own to ameliorate disruptive behaviour patterns common to ADD. This step-by-step approach has been piloted with over 150 families and has proved to be very helpful in bringing harmony back into the parents' relationship with their child. This work brings together for the first time a variety of tried and tested methods in a comprehensive and accessible format, and goes beyond the identification of the symptoms to tackle the changes parents can make, to ensure that behaviour problems associated with ADHD are managed and reduced.
