Smart But Stuck: Emotions in Teens and Adults with ADHD
Compelling stories that present a new view of ADHD
Smart but Stuck offers 15 true and compelling stories about intelligent, capable teens and adults who have gotten "stuck" at school, work, and/or in social relationships because of their ADHD. Dr. Brown highlights the often unrecognized role that emotions play in this complex disorder. He explains why even very bright people with ADHD get stuck because they can focus well on some tasks that interest them, but often can't focus adequately on other important tasks and relationships.
Drawing on the latest research findings, the book describes strategies and treatments for getting "unstuck" to move on to a more rewarding and productive life.

Smart But Stuck provides good insight to the plethora of different manifestations and treatments for ADHD. It shows time and time again that ADHD is more than just something that young kids go through. In the home stretch of the book, the patient's stories begin repeating themes and becoming repetitive, but the rest of the book is engaging.
