What’s the fuss about ADHD

by Dr Brendan Belsham

This book explores the controversies surrounding the condition, and presents the relevant science in a way that is accessible and readable. It is written mainly for parents of inattentive children but it is also for the many professionals involved with ADHD.  Parents and professionals alike will be encouraged to think more deeply about  the condition and what it means for our children.
What’s the fuss about ADHD? covers various aspects of the disorder, including its history, diagnosis, causes and treatment. 
The author draws on his years of practice as a child psychiatrist to address the issues which most concern parents, such as accuracy of diagnosis and the safety of commonly used medications. In doing so, he provides a balanced account which acknowledges the many ethical complexities at play.

What people have to say about the book:

ADHD is a significant part of my busy practice. I found this book well written, easy to read and most informative! I have started recommending it to colleagues as well as parents and patients too! An authoritative presentation that is accessible to everyone.
Dr Colin Derrick

Specialist Paediatrician

Most informative and concise book I have read on ADHD. Wonderful! Recommended for parents, family members, teachers and those having dealings with children.

This is the best book I have ever read on the subject of ADHD. My wife and I read the book over the December holidays and we battled to put it down. It is very informative and also easy to read. Dr Belsham gave medical facts in a way that a layperson can understand and make sense of what is being communicated. The book covers the history of ADHD, symptoms and mitigating factors. The book also gives one a proper understanding of possible causes of ADHD and how should parents respond to it. We also appreciated the counsel Dr Belsham gives on medication and parenting a child with ADHD. He also gives very good general parenting skills. Every parent should read this book!

This is a wonderful book. All parents of children who present with concentration problems should read it.
