5 out of 5 stars Excellent Book   September 7, 2006
I highly recommend this book to parents, teachers and anyone interested in learning more about ADHD. I am actually currently taking my Masters in Special Education and this book was a wonderful source of information. It is a very powerful book where the author talks about his personal experience growing up with ADHD. All parents of kids with ADHD should read this book because after this experience they will definitely understand better their kids’ behavior. I congratulate the author for sharing his personal experience and for showing through his writing how parents and teachers have a crucial role in developing kids’ self – esteem

5 out of 5 stars A Book You’ll Never Forget……   July 27, 2006

As a freshman in college, I was finally diagnoised with ADHD after always having problems growing up and never quite fitting in with my peers. After being diagnoised I continued to struggle to find the support I needed. 2 years after I was diagnoised, through the ADHD support group that I have been part of, I was encouraged to read Dr. Jergen’s book. It took quite sometime for me to finish it but it was the most touching and honest story. I finally felt like I knew someone that has gone through similar struggles like me. Dr. Jergen’s book has given me hope. It has shown that someone with severe ADHD can find ways to cope and be successful. I could barely finish his book because I was so touched and moved to tears. Thank you!!!!

I **strongly** believe that ANYONE touched by ADHD whether personally, through a family member, your spouse, your child, or through your classroom or your job should read this book. While at times it may be difficult to read, scary, and appear hopeless; this book, Dr. Jergen’s personal journey with ADHD will help others understand what we are going through. It has helped my mom and for the first time, we really are talking about it.

5 out of 5 stars Just want to add my appreciation for this book   July 12, 2006
There have been several well written and very useful reviews of this book already. I just want to add mine to the collection.
I am a substitute teacher and was looking for a book to help me understand ADHD. This was the book. Also, unlike so many other books, it isn’t geared to a regular classroom teacher with the ability to set her own lesson plans and class structure.
I really appreciate Mr. Jergen telling his story so bluntly – it will be a big help to many in all walks of life.

I have read several books on ADHD since my grandsons were diagnosed and this is by far the most valuable. It helps me understand what they are experiencing at school, home, church and why they behave the way they do. It certainly motivates one to do everything possible to help them avoid being “the little monster” and discusses what worked in the author’s case. I congratulate the author for sharing his powerful personal story.

5 out of 5 stars should be required reading for all teachers   February 9, 2006

I picked this book up for a paper I was writing in my Education degree program. It was so readable, that I couldn’t put it down. The book lets us into the private thoughts of a child with ADHD. I did not appreciate the degree of impulsiveness, or compulsiveness that these children have. The author shares motives (or lack of motives) for his behaviour that are not what one would expect. I have gained such insight from this book! My mother is a retired resource teacher and when she read it she said she wished it had been available years ago. It should be on the required reading list for every teacher.
