Industry Reviews

This is the book for fathers who have traditionally stayed outside the treatment loop; it is also the book for mothers who have tried to get their husbands more involved; and it is the book for professionals who too often neglect the critical role the father plays in the ADHD family. -- Robert L. Weber, Ph.D., Cambridge (MA) Hospital Dr. Jacobs has drawn on his own experience as well as the knowledge in the field to create a moving, useful, unique book that should be helpful to any parent and all clinicians. A comprehensive resource and a welcome addition to the literature. -- Edward Hallowell, MD, author of Driven to Distraction and many other books; Founder of The Hallowell Centers; host of the weekly podcast Distraction Compassionate and filled with helpful real-life examples, Dr. Jacobs' book is a superb reference for parents and professionals. -- Pamela L. Enders, Ph.D., Harvard Medical School
