    I have the worst ADHD and wasn't diagnosed until adulthood. This book as been more useful for me probably than my prescribed meds, if I'm being honest. I've not even finished the entire thing; big surprise, right?? I dont do these things in chronological order, that's my ADHD...and thanks to this book, I realize now that there is nothing wrong with doing things that way, it's just how I digest information best.

    Ive underlined and highlighted so so much of this book, it's wild. It is very validating to learn that many struggles are part of my ADHD and not just me being a failure of a person. But don't buy the book for validation; buy it because it is full of information and coping mechanisms that, if put into practice, make like more bearable, less daunting, less overwhelming. There are exercises/challenges to do at the end of each section, because it's important to DO things to learn rather than simply reading, particularly with attention span issues! And because all brai s are different, so these exercises help you realize the unique features of YOUR own ADHD so you can adjust your habits accordingly.

    No, my life isn't fixed now, every day is a massive challenge and it sucks, frankly. But I'm really glad I found this book; it sucks a bit less now.

    The subject of this book states it all in matter-of-fact ways that you may sheath know about, but need a reminder. The problem is that sticking to anything, including this book, is a trial in itself.

    My suggestion? Mark the book, but don’t read it—that is, until you comprehend you’ve got enough down time to gulp it all down like a tall glass of ice cold lemonade on a hot and sweaty summer day. The reason I suggest this is because there is information that you’ve no doubt heard before. But there’s also new information you’ll miss if you aren’t paying attention.

    This book is short enough for a voracious reader to easily conquer in two days, if they haven’t finished it in one. Myself? (Since you’ve asked.) I made it a third of the way through before another book captured my attention BEFORE I solved the dilemma. But, I’ll come back and finish—promise! 🫣

    content is A+, but it isn't optimized for people with ADHD. It is very text heavy, and you have to read it like REEEEEAD it to get anything from it. I pick it up when I'm already really overwhelmed, so I haven't been able to actually engage with it because it sends me into overdrive.

    I'm a licensed psychologist with 25 years of experience and I not only work with adults with ADHD, I have ADHD myself. I recommend this book to all of my adult clients with ADHD, as I find it to be highly readable since it is broken into short chapters with a variety of assessments and bullet points on coping strategies. Highly recommend.

    This book surprised me. It was totally different from any other book on ADHD that I have ever read. The book is 100% dedicated to mental strategies for dealing with the effects of ADHD. Its in this focus that lies its power. Not a ‘fun’ read that you read cover. Its a practical implementation workbook

    I am a licensed professional counselor as well as the parent of two adult children with ADHD. I found this to be an excellent book to use with clients who are struggling to find practical strategies to help them deal with executive function issues of memory, task completion, prioritizing, etc. The format is user friendly with brief sections and highlighted tips, with a summary of the main points at the end of each chapter.

    I especially like the exercises designed to allow the reader to practice strategies using their own notebook and other devices. So many books give suggestions, but this is unique in giving actual assignments to practice the techniques so that they are reinforced and actually learned. In fact, the suggestions are great for anyone wanting to become more successful in managing information and accomplishing goals.

    I’ve read a number of books on ADHD, and this is one of the most useful ones I’ve ever found. I’ll be recommending it to clients and therapists alike.

    While medication helps me, I want to do everything I can to make my life easier. I was diagnosed a few years ago, the symptoms seem to have worsened with age to the point that it became clear that I had had this my whole life. As a woman, we’re often misdiagnosed or just missed in being diagnosed. I found this book helpful and empowering - we can thrive with ADHD. This book is practical! Recommended for your journey to a successful life.
