From an attempt to hurl his infant sister off the edge of a table to being lashed down to a dining room chair by an irate babysitter, the stories from Blake Taylor's life with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are at times hilarious, tragic, and instructive. This eminently readable memoir sheds light on what it's like for a young person to grow up with, suffer from, and ultimately learn to live with this common condition.
