The Field Guide to ADHD: What They Don't Want You to Know $82.00
Authors: Blake Harding (Researcher, Teachers College, Columbia University, New York, New York, USA) 
Book Description:
In The Field Guide to ADHD: What They Donít Want You to Know, Harding confronts with unusual candor and painstaking effort one of the most alarming and perilous crises of our time: ADHD. In confronting this crisis, Harding forces us to reconsider the assumptions underlying ADHD and how we think about medical diagnoses, disability, health and authority. Harding unwraps these bewildering and conflicting ADHD issues while investigating the spiraling amount of overdiagnosed cases of ADHD, many often highly medicated and taught to conform rather than to thrive, no matter the individual or societal cost. Harding examines how the ADHD crisis drives perilous and dangerous conditions while providing fresh directions ahead to disarm this ailment and start harnessing ADHD as a beneficial form of human diversity.
In this fresh approach to ADHD, results from more than four years of global field research from Finland to California investigating ADHD in children, adolescents and adults is woven together to create a fascinating tapestry of new ADHD understanding. In this new understanding, Harding provides everyday innovative approaches to harnessing and thriving with ADHD while dedicating pain staking effort to shedding insight into the many controversies igniting the ADHD crises. As Harding passionately argues, policy makers, healthcare professionals, parents and other stakeholders are not only supporting the overdiagnosis of ADHD, but fundamentally thinking about ADHD all wrong. The Field Guide to ADHD: What They Donít Want You to Know passionately intervenes in this wrongly handled situation by forcing people to reconsider ADHD assumptions, providing evidence based directions for containing the perilous ADHD crisis and introducing highly impactful everyday solutions to harness the diverse benefits of ADHD.
