A leading expert on child learning problems and author of A MIND AT A TIME describes the eight learning syndromes that he believes cause bright people to have chronic difficulty being productive. Though he's a physician, his categories go beyond the calcified syndromes of modern psychiatry. The eight categories are low mental energy, weak productivity control, impoverished ideation, in-effective motor output, disorganization, insatiability or social distractibility, insufficient memory, and language dys-function. The case histories are skillfully blended into the narrative, which never stalls or wanders from the mission of the book--to help people see that the reasons for output problems, when identified, can help them escape from a life of criticism and underachievement.
