It has much to offer to mental health practitioners, parents and teachers" Fred R. Volkmar, MD, Irving B. Harris Professor of Psychiatry, Child Study Center Yale University School of Medicine; editor, Encyclopedia of Autism; editor-in-chief, Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders "I read your book and really like all the case histories of adults, young adults, and children.

Temple Grandin, PhD, professor of animal science, Colorado State University; author, The Autistic Brain and Thinking in Pictures-My Life with Autism "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 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.

"Dr. Thomas Brown has crafted a superb and widely accessible book focused on smart children and adults with ADHD who have specific strengths and interests, but who also encounter significant difficulties in social and school settings. This volume is well worth reading by clinicians, educators, and parents as well as those brilliant individuals dealing with Asperger's syndrome." James F. Leckman, MD, PhD, Nelson Harris Professor of Child Psychiatry, Pediatrics and Psychology, Yale University This book is a must read for mental health professionals, educators, and families interested in understanding the intersection between ADHD and Asperger Syndrome.
