"This well-written and informative book draws upon research and Dr. Brown's extensive clinical experience to fill a great need for clinicians, patients, and families. It presents clinical cases of highly intelligent people struggling with both ADHD and Asperger Syndrome (high functioning autism spectrum disorder). It wisely informs us of what they can do to improve their quality of life. I congratulate Dr. Brown for this unique book that serves a neglected population of people." - Russell A. Barkley, PhD, clinical professor of psychiatry, Medical University of South Carolina.

"Asperger's syndrome and ADHD often combine to create a complex profile of abilities. I recommend this informative and practical book for professionals and for parents. - Tony Attwood, PhD, clinical psychologist and associate professor, Griffith University, Queensland, Australia; author of The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome.
