Published in August, 2000, this book contains a comprehensive recap of Thom's most important concepts, as well as dramatic new material on how our schools came about, how they wound our children, and how we can fix them.

The Complete Guide also contains several chapters on how to make relationships work in ADHD homes, as well as the entire text of Thom's out-of-print book "Focus Your Energy," reprinted here as the "At Work" section of this book.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
