"Like many Gen X kids, Page took Ritalin to control attention problems and hyperactive behavior. As an adult, he notices his old symptoms returning and goes back on medication, but this time he starts to ask questions. The result is a thick graphic novel that explores ADHD, Ritalin, and psychiatric medication from every possible angle. Page intersperses his ongoing search for treatment with biology lessons, history, and criticisms of the pharmaceutical industry. [Page] dives in with curiosity and an open mind, encouraging readers to make their own choices. A longtime indie cartoonist, Page draws in a simple and accessible if unremarkable style, sometimes stretching too hard for gags instead of letting the material speak for itself. As a chronicle of mental illness... it provides an exhaustive, personal look at the little-understood world of ADHD." --Publisher's Weekly 

"There are a ton of graphic memoirs, fewer graphic guides, and yet fewer still research based graphic novels. This is a combination of the three - and that makes it special." - Matthew Noe, Library Fellow at the Lamar Soutter Library, UMass Medical School, and Graphic Medicine Specialist, NER
