Most out-of-print books are not listed Also, there are some videotapes and some audio cassettes listed. That a book is listed here does not mean that I recommend it. I generally do not list books that were copyrighted before1991 because of the advances in research since then. If there is one you think should be listed, please let me know.

* Notes:

  • Throughout this page, when I refer to ADD I mean both with and without hyperactivity.
  • Some of the links here take you to more information on this page. Others take you to other longer pages on this site. Still others take you directly to the descriptions at Amazon.com. These will change until eventually most will refer you to other pages on this site where you can learn more about the books. Any prices marked are list approximations, if they are wrong, please let me know! (Links that say Amazon.uk take you to information about ordering the book from the UK version of Amazon.com.)

  1. 1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12 Behavior problems are something most consider the hallmark of the ADHD child. One of the best books I've seen in this area, one that parents I know swear by, is "1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline for Children 2-12" by Thomas W. Phelan. It is also available in audio, video, and Spanish language versions.
  2. 10 Helpful Tips for Hyperactive Teens - Jr, Sr High / VHS Tape / Published 1995
  3. 20 Helpful Tips for Hyperactive Kids - Grades K-6 / VHS Tape / Published 1996

RENAMED BOOKS: (Note: the titles of many of the following books have been altered to make the first "word" ADD. It may actually be "Attention Deficit Disorder", "Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder", "ADHD", or "A.D.D." This is done because I often forget which it was in looking for a book and I assume that some others may have the same problem. The same books follow in proper alphabetical order with their real titles. I hope this gives more help than confusion.) Click here to skip the renamed books section.

  61. Hunter of the Past by Caroline Hensby and Bernard Braham. FREE downloadable book! Requires Windows (3.1 - 95)
    "For a child, being labeled with ADD or ADHD can be a double-wounding. First, of course, there's the ADD itself, andthe academic and/or social problems which have probably plagued the child his or her entire life as a result of it. But on top of that, there's the often even more painful wounding of being told that he or she has a "disorder" and, compared to others, is "deficient." These are very strong words, and children take such things very seriously. They're extraordinarily good at living up (or down) to our expectations of them, and such labels can often be painful to wear.
    In this book, Caroline Hensby and Bernard Braham give children an opportunity to reframe their ADD/ADHD in a less pathological light, to see themselves as having potential and strengths, and to hear the sound of hope for the future. It's empowering, enlightening, and altogether healing.
    That's why this is such an important book. For your child, in fact, it may be the most important book on ADD in the world...
    --Thom Hartmann, psychotherapist and author of ADD: A Different Perception and Healing ADD"

A psychologist teams with a neurologist to help parents understand hyperactivity, review the treatments available, and provide tools to help children channel their energy and develop into successful adults.

  91. Think Fast! The ADD Experience edited by Thom Hartmann, Janie Bowman and Susan Burgess / 1996 This book gathers expert information on and everyday experiences with ADD and presents it in a format that can be read cover to cover or scanned for specific topics relevant to the reader.
    Thom Hartmann comments: an anthology of discussions and writings culled from the ADD Forum on CompuServe, which I run along with some of the people in the book. Contributors to this book (and the discussions) include Russell Barkley, Edward Hallowell, John Ratey, Carla Nelson, and many others, not a "book by Thom Hartmann." I wrote only one chapter for it (a summary of my Hunter/Farmer theory). It includes a broad overview of perspectives and opinions about ADD. It's broad, diverse, and provides an excellent insight into the many different ways to view and treat ADD.

  1. Why Your Child Is Hyperactive ~ Usually ships in 24 hours
    Ben F. Feingold / Paperback / Published 1985
    While there is little evidence that diet causes most ADD, there are a number of people who have noted improvements following the recommendations in this book, especially in people who have other food allergies. Perhaps you would be one of them. - I personally don't recommend foregoing medical treatment until after trying this because the consequences of not treating ADD can be so severe. Nevertheless, for those who won't use aspirin or penicillin, this may be something you should check out immediately. Others may still want to look at it and see if the suggested dietary changes help. (Balance Check)
  2. Windows Into the A.D.D. Mind by Daniel G. Amen, M.D. Available in hardcover (out of print) or paperback. -Daniel G. Amen is a neurological pediactric psychiatrist who has been the keynote speaker at numerous ADD conferences including the 1997 ADDA conference. This book shows the images produced by brain scans of people with ADD and gives a clear description of different types of ADD as well as treatments available.
