Description: From being tied down to a kitchen chair by a frustrated babysitter, to foiling bullies, and launching rockets into neighbors' swimming pools, the stories from Blake Taylor's life with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are at times hilarious, poignant, and instructive. This eminently readable memoir sheds light on what it's like for a young person to grow up with, and suffer from, and ultimately learn to harness this common condition.
