    "Fantastic book"

    I can't recommend this book highly enough, as with all Dr. Mate's books he has mixed science with extremely readable material.

    I have in quick succession read all of Dr. Mate's books, each one of them has been really illuminating and given me a great deal of food for thought.

    The narration by Daniel Mate is flawless and just adds to the satisfying experience of listening to the book.

    "A must read. Gives context to adhd chaos"

    Loved it. Listened to it straight through.
    Puts adhd in a monumental different perspective and addresses the real issues. Opens up for understanding, compassion and curiosity as means of healing instead of a quick fix. Relevant for anyone interested in family dynamics and personal growth.

    "Must read for parents even from non add kids"

    Neither myself nor my kids are diagnosed with add. But the description of how anxiety arises in kids and how the attachment relationship can be disturbed are just so valuable. And even I think add is not an either you got it or not. It is actually a scale and certain traits at certain time will surface in almost everyone. So I found it very helpful just to get a better understanding of humans in general.
    I loved the way it was red with beautiful intonation to make it interesting and easy to listen. Thanks to all involved!

    "An Educator's Must Read"

    As someone with ADD, and working in education, this book has been VERY useful. I have many insights into how I act, and what my needs are from this insightful reference. I intend to refer back to many chapters as I attend to myself. I hope to inspire others with ADD to do the same and assist others to understand the person (child or adult) with ADD. I have recommended this book since I started reading it (the audio version was great to have!! I learn better with audio and visual!).
