Yet research shows that ADHD can't be that prevalent. ADHD, a problem once thought to affect a small percentage of children, has exploded into one of the most over-diagnosed conditions. Now, in the US doctors and Big Pharma are targeting adults and young people to believe they have ADHD and take medications that will 'transform their lives'. In ADHD Nation, Alan Schwarz takes readers behind the scenes to tell the full story of this billion-dollar industry. There's the father of ADHD, Dr Keith Conners, who spent fifty years promoting the disorder in the US and pills like Ritalin before realising just what he had wrought; a troubled young girl and studious, teenage boy who get entangled in the ADHD machine and are prescribed medications that lead to serious problems; and the pharmaceutical industry that promoted the disorder and continues to earn billions from mishandling the disorder of ADHD."--Back cover."@en ;
