Fantastic, empathetic, well-researched and important work. Daniel Mate is one of my most favourite narrators.

A must read. Gives context to adhd chaos

Loved it. Listened to it straight through.
Puts adhd in a monumental different perspective and addresses the real issues. Opens up for understanding, compassion and curiosity as means of healing instead of a quick fix. Relevant for anyone interested in family dynamics and personal growth.

Fantastic book

I can't recommend this book highly enough, as with all Dr. Mate's books he has mixed science with extremely readable material.

I have in quick succession read all of Dr. Mate's books, each one of them has been really illuminating and given me a great deal of food for thought.

The narration by Daniel Mate is flawless and just adds to the satisfying experience of listening to the book.
