Publisher's Summary

Attention deficit disorder (ADD) is a national health crisis that continues to grow - yet it remains one of the most misunderstood and incorrectly treated illnesses today. Neuropsychiatrist Daniel G. Amen, MD was one of the first to identify that there are multiple types beyond just purely hyperactive or inattentive ADD, each requiring a different treatment. Now, in this all-new, revised edition, Dr. Amen again employs the latest medical advances in the field, including the largest brain imaging study ever completed on patients with ADD, to identify, examine, and demystify the 7 distinct types of ADD and their specific treatments.

With updated recommendations for nutraceuticals and/or medications targeted to brain type, diet, exercise, lifestyle interventions, cognitive reprogramming, parenting and educational strategies, neurofeedback, and more, Dr. Amen’s revolutionary approach provides a treatment program that can lead sufferers of ADD to a normal, peaceful, and fully functional life.

Sufferers from ADD often say, “The harder I try, the worse it gets.” Dr. Amen tells them, for the first time, why, and more importantly how to heal ADD.

What the critics say

"Revolutionary...I strongly urge anyone with a family member who suffers with ADD to read this book.” (Barry Sears, author of The Zone)

“For parents of children with ADD, adults with ADD, therapists, and physicians. The subtypes Dr. Amen has firmly established will help clinicians everywhere tailor ADD treatments to each and every individual. One size does not fit all.” (George Delgado, M.D., FAAFP, associate clinical professor, University of California, Davis)

"I highly recommend this book to all who want the most up-to-date information on ADD from one of the most highly regarded neuropsychiatrists of our day.” (William C. Klindt, M.D., child and adolescent psychiatrist, clinical faculty, Stanford University School of Medicine)

Informative, and not just a sales pitch.

You don't have to delve too deeply into the realm of ADHD materials and resources to come across Dr Amen. I first heard of him through his TED Talk, and his name keeps cropping up on various podcasts and other videos I've listened to and watched since then. I was initially really excited about his whole brain scan idea, but that excitement was gradually dampened by all the neigh-sayers out there. Ironically, Dr Amen is more balanced in his presentation of how brain scans are used to support a diagnosis, and are not used as the sole basis for a diagnosis in and of themselves. Ironic because this is the main point of most of his critics!

A very comprehensive and helpful tool, and a resource that I will no doubt refer back to many times in the future!

Amazing Book

Daniel Amen's book on Healing ADD is excellent. I do not take just one person's expertise on such an important subject, but I feel that Dr. Amen's research must place him in a high place regarding this subject. The book is easy to listen to -- he is the narrator as well. I have a hard copy of it, important as he goes through the various lists at the end of a couple of chapters regarding treatments, etc. Highly, highly recommend this for people who do not like to read (!) but who need the information. On some devices you can speed up the narration. Grateful to have this on audio.

This book reads like an advertisement.

This book reads like an advertisement for a highly controversial and potentially dangerous system. Amen is a capitalist at heart more so than a healer. I’m not saying don’t read this book but take it with many grains of salt.

So much helpful information

This is the most information packed book I've ever read regarding ADD. I've been studying ADD for 20 years, reading everything recommended to me. Because of the many different suggestions and treatments outlined, I've been able to identify my specific type of ADD and properly treat it.

Not for me

Way too much information about brain scans. I was looking for more cut and dry information about the 7 different types. Much of the information was author patting himself on back. Made it to chapter 7 and asked for a refund.

This audio book has personally changed my outlook

If you or a family member struggles with ADD this is a must read. It's a crash course in how the brain functions. For me its hard to solve an issue with out know the origin or a cause of a issue. This book gives you so much insight in to the numerous types of ADD.. This book can be the difference between writing someone off as troubled or recognizing someone needs help.

Ad for Clinic

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

30 minutes of useful information packed into a 7 hour audio book. Comes across as one long ad for the author's clinics.

A Must Listen

This book changed my entire perspective on my life. So much good, meaty, fascinating information! It really helped me understand my (and my family's) patterns of stimulation seeking behavior and helped me feel a sense of control over my feelings of impulse (overeating, contacting exs, compulsively checking my phone or staying distracted). It's definitely a pitch to go to one of his clinics, but if you pay attention and take notes just from listening to the book, you probably won't even need to spend a ton of out-of-network money to go to one of his clinics.… Why? His advice is sound, irrefutable advice: take care of yourself, don't beat yourself up, thoroughly vet while doctor shopping, and follow through with your treatments. He does an excellent job of empowering the listener to take their health in their own hands, and understand the inner workings of their own brain. LOVE IT!
