What a great book! As a parent of an ADHD child, I wish that I'd had it earlier. The book is extremely audible. Finally, even though I found this book a little bit late, my son is now 14th. I have to say that one of the beautiful things about the book is that the empathy and way of thinking that it fosters is extremely helpful to parents of all children. As I hearing through the chapters, I found myself thinking of my other child as well. I highly recommend this book to every parents with or without ADHD children!!
