Scattered Minds explodes the myth of attention deficit disorder as genetically based - and offers real hope and advice for children and adults who live with the condition.

Gabor Mate is a revered physician who specializes in neurology, psychiatry and psychology - and himself has ADD. With wisdom gained through years of medical practice and research, Scattered Minds is a must-read for parents - and for anyone interested how experiences in infancy shape the biology and psychology of the human brain.

Scattered Minds:

- Demonstrates that ADD is not an inherited illness, but a reversible impairment and developmental delay.

- Explains that in ADD, circuits in the brain whose job is emotional self-regulation and attention control fail to develop in infancy - and why.

- Shows how 'distractibility' is the psychological product of life experience.

- Allows parents to understand what makes their ADD children tick, and adults with ADD to gain insights into their emotions and behaviours.

- Expresses optimism about neurological development even in adulthood.

- Presents a programme of how to promote this development in both children and adults.
