This book is literally changing my life. It is amazing to view ADD from a positive perspective and focus on how to build on the strengths rather than just fighting the challanges!
This book, along with the first one, Driven to Distraction have been amazingly helpful to me. I am a 46 year old male living in the Chicagoland area, and only known I have ADHD for a little over 2 years now.
These gentlemen have helped me to understand why I am different, and that it's ok that I am. In fact, I am starting to discover the spectacular benefits of it.
If you have, or even THINK you might have ADD or ADHD, LISTEN or READ this book! Your world will be changed.
A lifechanging book for me. Allthough being successfull in many areas of life listeningto this book has made me understand the not so great aspects of it.
I´m an adult ADD I had my diagnosis many years ago I thougt I knew a lot about my disorder, but I didn´t know how to deal with it´s negative aspects, which I now starting to do.
A must read experiance for all people related with ADD, I have it and has given me light with tips on what to do and not to do on real life experiance, not just dry theory
At first I thought to myself, how in the world does somebody right a book for us people with A.D.D? Does he not realize that we can't get through an entire book! LOL. This book really was able to communicate with people that have A.D.D. The structure of the chapters is laid out in such a way that you can skip around...start at the end...do whatever you want to do and still get all the vital information out of the book. This book helped me truly understand a lot about myself...especially about how A.D.D. affects you as a parent. I didn't put the 2 together until I listened to this book. Highly recommend it to anybody with A.D.D., suspects they may have A.D.D., or someone with loved ones, friends, and/or coworkers that have the gift! (Can't believe I was able to write all that! Amazing!)
Very informative and interesting. The woman's magazine style of plenty of 3rd party stories will appeal to many in giving life to the information. The price of that is time. The abridged version gives you a very good 50k foot view, and when you can linger, give this a listen. Good narration, as well. Listen to the Amen book 'Change Your Brain...' as a companion book.
I realize that many people suffer from ADD and I consider myself one of them. I do not, however, drown myself in self pity, looking for every excuse to blame this condition on someone else. If you are truly looking to be delivered, skip this book. If you are looking for permission to wallow in self pity - by all means, get this book.
