H. Joseph Horacek, Jr., M.D. , is president and medical director of the Center for Neurological Health in Learning in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Illuminating, comprehensive, and delightfully written, Brainstorms
offers a fresh perspective on ADHD and related disorders. Dr.
Horacek addresses their baffling emotional component, recognizing
the need for paradigm shifts and an effective reframe for behavior.
He simplifies brain chemistry and medication, and arms clinicians
with the kinds of understanding that will help them solve the
riddle of the complex neurology and psychology governing these
syndromes. -- Eduardo M. Bustamante, Ph.D.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder has become one of the fashionable psychiatric diagnoses of the 1990s. This book, authoritative, engaging, and often entertaining, explains the clinical presentations of ADHD and effortlessly guides readers to an understanding of their underlying neuroanatomy and rational pharmacology. Dr. Horacek's stated goal is to help us 'better understand the emotional storms that blow through the brains and souls of the people [we] love,' and he has succeeded admirably. His insights will serve as an invaluable resource for parents, teachers, educators, and psychotherapists. -- Anthony LaBruzza M.D.
