First line: Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) is the fastest growing childhood disorder in the United States.

Why you should read this book: It details the history and underlying causes of ADD along with its diagnosis and treatment in children and adults, and lays out a foundation for understanding the course of the disorder. The author presents research explaining how nutrition affects brain chemistry and how modern diets negatively influence cognitive processing and behavior, concluding with discussion of additives and foods to avoid, nutrients and supplements to add, and recipes and meal replacements to implement her thirty-day plan to eliminate ADD without drugs. The book also contains a number of appendices with further resources for readers, plus detailed documentation of the research on which the theories are based.
