Summary " ... Shows how medicine, science, and society jointly--though not intentionally--stigmatize ADHD-diagnosed people, while offering them few options. It also explores ways we can change our concepts and practices to improve factual understanding of ADHD, open alternatives to affected people, and reduce intolerance"--Jacket, page 4.
