A must read for parents of children with ADHD

This was the most helpful, easy to listen to books I have read on the subject of ADHD. It not only explains the disorder but gives you encouragement, support and instructions on how to handle the struggles of parenting a child with ADHD.

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.

decent book

I like the author quite a bit. the book has some outdated statements but has overall good information. I did not like the reading. I found his voice irritating and the way he presented the chapters wasn't working for me.

A Great Resource

This is an excellent that every parent should read! The author helps give parents a new perspective for their child with ADHD and gives practical tools to help the parent help their child.

Love this book but disliked the narrator

This book is so useful and helpful for parents of kids w ADHD. But the narrator was so intense! He sounds like a baseball announcer. His inflection and tone were so distracting. And it made it difficult to really connect w the material. For this book I would choose print.

Very helpful book, but somewhat annoying narration

A lot of good principles here, and very helpful way to frame one's mind about having a child with ADHD, and the nature of the disorder, but the narration was somewhat unenjoyable and monotoned.

Fantastic Book, AWFUl Narrator

This is a truly fantastic book. however, it was a real struggle to get through this audiobook, as I found the narrator’s voice grating and really distracting. such a shame, as the book is excellent. I know narrators voices are a personal preference, but just listen to a quick sample before you purchase this audiobook

Get to the point

Struggling to get through the intro as is a simple regurgitation of the obvious.
Cant skip to chapters and hard to keep listening to recorded voice
