A Big Dose of Reality, Warmth, and Encouragement

I am a child clinical psychologist with extensive clinical and research experience related to ADHD. I am also a foster parent, and I thought I might enjoy and find new inspiration in Dr. Barkley's words. Russell Barkley's books are popular but definitely not "pop" psychology; he is a respected scientist practitioner. This book exceeded even my high expectations. Isn't it funny how you can "know" something but still need to hear it again -- in a new way. I found this book to be accurate and grounded while also being warm, encouraging, realistic, and practical. Even the narration well represents Dr. Barkley's authoritative, trustworthy voice.
