This book is an outstanding, articulate and heartwarming presentation of AD/HD and the problems it presents to those who have it and their families. More importantly, it also describes the frequently astonishingly successful impact of EEG biofeedback in treating the disorder.As a neuropsychologist who tested many children for learning and attention problems, I became very tired of being able to tell parents and kids WHY they were having troubles learning, getting along with peers and disrupting their families, without having better solutions to offer than a referral to a psychiatrist for medication--which, while helpful, does not always address the full extent of the problems and often has troubling side effects.I was amazed at the impact of neurofeedback when I finally explored it some ten years ago. It has taken over my practice to my immense delight. The changes in brain functioning neurofeedback results in provides the foundation upon which other therapies, education and sports performance training can build.For me it has resulted in a profound shift in the way in which I view "mental" and "emotional" problems--difficulties I had assumed were characterological (even AFTER being trained as a neuropsychologist), such as "laziness" or being "unmotivated", could frequently be eliminated after a few sessions.I believe that once the impact of EEG biofeedback is fully understood and accepted by psychology, medicine, education and the sports community, we will look back and see that our viewpoint on people and their potential is as different as the world appeared after Galileo looked at the night sky through his telescope and found that the earth circled the sun, rather than the other way around.
