ADHD Does Not Exist: The Truth About Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder
In this groundbreaking and controversial book, behavioral neurologist Dr. Richard Saul draws on five decades of experience treating thousands of patients labeled with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder - one of the fastest growing and widely diagnosed conditions today - to argue that ADHD is actually a cluster of symptoms stemming from over 20 other conditions and disorders.According to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 6.4 million children between the ages of four and seventeen have been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. While many skeptics believe that ADHD is a fabrication of drug companies and the medical establishment, the symptoms of attention-deficit and hyperactivity are all too real for millions of individuals who often cannot function without treatment. If ADHD does not exist, then what is causing these debilitating symptoms?Over the course of half a century, physician Richard Saul has worked with thousands of patients demonstrating symptoms of ADHD. Based on his experience, he offers a shocking conclusion: ADHD is not a condition on its own, but rather a symptom complex caused by over twenty separate conditions - from poor eyesight and giftedness to bipolar disorder and depression - each requiring its own specific treatment. Drawing on in-depth scientific research and real-life stories from his numerous patients, ADHD Does not Exist synthesizes Dr. Saul's findings, and offers and clear advice for everyone seeking answers.

The Panic Virus
In recent years rates of vaccination against childhood diseases have declined in the United States and around the developed world as allegations that vaccination can lead to autism have frightened parents of young children. Preventable childhood illnesses have increased, in some cases with fatal consequences. The tragedy is that these allegations are demonstrably false. The Panic Virus shows how a group of activists manipulated a compliant media into covering this false story. Seth Mnookin lays much of the blame at the feet of media outlets that failed to report a science story accurately and intelligibly.
Healing Children: A Surgeon's Stories from the Frontiers of Pediatric Medicine
Anyone who has seen a child recover from a wound or a broken bone knows that kids are made to heal. Their bodies are more resilient, more adaptive, and far more able to withstand acute stress than adult bodies. In this inspiring memoir, Dr. Kurt Newman draws from his long experience as a pediatric surgeon working at one of our nation’s top children’s hospitals to make the case that children are more than miniature adults. Through the story of his own career and of the brave kids he has treated over the years - and their equally brave and tenacious parents - he reveals the revolution that is taking place in pediatric medicine. When he decided to become a pediatric surgeon, the field was in its infancy, struggling for esteem. Now, nearly forty years later, it is at the forefront of exhilarating new discoveries in everything from cancer research to mental health care. But few parents know how to access the best care for their children. Far too many find themselves frustrated and afraid. Dr. Newman wrote this book to help guide parents - not just of sick kids but of all kids - and to share his knowledge of what children need to thrive. A deeply human story with a spectacular cast of young heroes and heroines, Healing Children will convince you that we still have a lot to learn from our kids.
