Not all parents of children with attention deficit disorder (ADD ADHD) will relate to the descriptions of home life described in the essays in this book, but most have experienced the bewilderment and social isolation of raising a child who doesn’t fit in.

From a purely literary standpoint, The Elephant in the Playroom is a success. Brodey, an editor at Glamour, corralled professional writers, and no doubt edited heavily for style and content.
