"One Boy's Struggle" is Considered by many as one of the most important memoirs about life with ADHD and is recommended reading according to Dr. Edward Hallowell and CHADD Educator of the Year for 2010 Dr. Katherine Nell Mcneil and many other professionals in the field of ADHD, education, coping with adult ADHD and parenthood.
This is a must-read for anyone who has ADD, or thinks they may, as well as for parents, friends, spouses, and teachers. Though many excellent books describing AD/HD exist, most are written from a medical or purely self-help perspective, perspectives that create distance from the phenomenon of having AD/HD.
Bryan writes an emotionally traumatic account of the years of punishment and criticism he received for having undiagnosed ADD as a child, and how he finally got help and achieved great success as an adult.
His intuitive sense that he was extremely talented at some things motivated him to focus on what he could do well. He contemplated the paradox of his impressive talents and his depressing failures often, which ultimately led him to seek help and finally be diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder.
Finally receiving a diagnosis of ADD was a life changing enlightenment for him. It has helped him heal the emotional scars of his past and move forward with newfound self-confidence, successfully using his innate ADD traits.
