Millions of American children have been diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and prescribed powerful drugs to manage their behavior. Yet while the number of children diagnosed with ADHD is increasing at an alarming rate, the science behind this so-called disorder is unraveling. Here, family psychologist John Rosemond joins with pediatrician Dr. Bose Ravenel to reveal the fallacy and pseudoscience behind ADHD and other childhood behavioral disorders. They show how certain professionals and pharmaceutical companies have allowed bad science to disease millions of children with these fictitious illnesses--and in the process have made an incredible amount of money.--From publisher description.
