Reviews

"A dazzling piece of journalism, based on extensive research and an enormous number of interviews...an outstanding expos ." --New Republic "[Schwarz's] nimble investigation interweaves the narratives of pharmaceutical companies with those of child psychologist Keith Conners, who led ADHD's 'Manhattan Project', and young people grappling with the medical fallout. An intriguing sidelight is the misuse of ADHD drugs as performance enhancers." --Nature "ADHD Nation is a necessary book. Schwarz has done a fine job on a maddening topic, and everyone who's interested in hyperactivity, attention spans, stimulants, and the current state of American health care should grab a copy." --New York Magazine "Mr. Schwarz's disciplined focus gives his book clarity and even utility." --The Wall Street Journal "This eye-opening book should be a hit with drug-industry skeptics and worried parents who want to read a well-reported, definitive guide to this misunderstood and overly medicated disorder." --Booklist "ADHD Nation should be required reading for those who seek to understand how a field that once aimed to ameliorate the behavioral problems of children in a broad therapeutic context abdicated its mission to the stockholders of corporations like Shire and Lilly. Schwarz is sounding an alarm for a fire that looks nowhere near abating." --The New York Times Book Review "In this powerful, necessary book, Schwarz exposes the dirty secrets of the growing ADHD epidemic." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "ADHD Nation is a true rarity - a book that confronts an important subject with the authority of an expert, makes its case with the urgency of a red alert, and moves at the pace of a thriller." --Daniel Okrent, New York Times bestselling author of Last Call "An illuminating exploration of ADHD, brimming with intelligence and insight. Schwarz reveals the powerful cultural and economic forces fueling its widespread diagnosis and drug treatment. Those with the disorder will hear a voice of compassion. And those who may be misdiagnosed, a clarion note of caution." --Jerome Groopman, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, staff writer, New Yorker
