Commanding Attention: A Parent and Patient Guide to More ADHD Treatment
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing resource, December 14, 2012
Travis - See all my reviewsAmazon Verified Purchase( What's this? )This review is from: COMMANDING ATTENTION: A PARENT AND PATIENT GUIDE TO MORE ADHD TREATMENT (Kindle Edition)
This book is an amazing resource for anyone looking for alternative methods of dealing with ADHD.
There are many people who are categorically "against ADHD drugs" and one of the things that has always bugged me is that they have this black and white opinion that is not based on anything at all. This book provides actual, objective, non-hysterical evidence of both the benefits and the potential pitfalls of ADHD drug therapy.
This is not an "anti-medication" book. This is a professionally written, honest, and empirical look at alternative treatments for the sufferers of ADHD. At points it's even funny. It has anecdotes that make it a joy to read compared to most of the non-fiction that I'm used to. It also shows research studies that can actually be used as evidence (so many sources of alternative ADHD treatment tend to use the anecdotes as the only evidence. This book does not make that mistake.) This book provides the reader with many ADHD treatment options and the expert advice to use them effectively.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for more tools to deal with their own or their children's ADHD or for professionals looking for a readable and empirical guide to understanding the benefits and science behind a wide range of other ADHD treatments .
This is a book that will be staying on my kindle for reference.

Tess Messer is the founder and editor of the award winning ADHD blog, and has also published hundreds of articles on the topic as well. Now she has written this insightful and very helpful book that gives a bigger look at ADHD, its treatments, therapy and other information that can really be very helpful and make a difference. This book is a great read and very well written by the author. Well I wouldn't expect anything less from Messer.

Tess Messer's book, Commanding Attention, is an indispensible resource. We've lived next door to my sister, Thea, and her daughter, my niece, for about three years now. My niece Dawn was diagnosed early in her life with ADHD-PI. I became aware of Tess Messer's work on the blog she founded as I researched Dawn's problem, trying to better understand her. By the time I found her blog, I had already read a lot about ADHD , but I wasn't really clear about it. Fortunately, Tess' blog does a great job of explaining all aspects of ADHD.
I just bought the book, Commanding Attention, and also bought a copy for my sister. It's on my computer and it covers a lot of ground. It includes chapters on everything from the effects of diet, exercise and sleep to the therapies of the future. It's all there in a way that I can understand it.
There was a lot of interesting information in there that neither my sister or I knew. My niece still struggles with her illness every day, but now we have many more facts and a lot more treatment options and my sister feels more in control of Dawn's problem and treatment..
If you have someone in your life with this problem, check this book. It made a world of difference to Thea, Dawn, and me.

VSL9 - See all my reviewsThis review is from: COMMANDING ATTENTION: A PARENT AND PATIENT GUIDE TO MORE ADHD TREATMENT (Kindle Edition)
This is a very accessible book on the subject of ADHD treatment. I remember having my adolescent tested years ago and given an automatic and not very differentiated diagnosis and a prescription. We felt like Alice in Wonderland being ordered to take this, but not being told of consequences or alternatives. It was scary. We decided against the drugs and somewhat managed. It would have been wonderful to have had a resource like this book to give us a clearer picture of drug treatment and other paths to follow. The book clears the fog that many of us feel when approaching this subject. It does not put down drug treatment, but explains it and opens other alternative paths and parallel therapies. It is also fun to read, and the writer has a very enjoyable easy and witty style.
