This book takes so many twists and turns, it truly keeps you on your toes! I really liked it!
Men and women of all ages and races will enjoy this book. I especially enjoyed listening to it on Audible because there various narrators are absolutely wonderful! Read it
The introduction in this book is painful!! I probably re-started the book five times in three months. I had a difficult time getting "into" it. However, once I got through that (2 hour) "hump"... I absolutely loved the book. I immediately downloaded and read the rest of the series within a few short weeks.
I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend.
Not every chapter is relevant to every young woman, however Tracy McMillan brings up some good points.
This book is NOT written specifically for audience of doctors, students, teachers, parents, patients or children, but ANY individual whose life is influenced and affected by ADD/ADHD. Dr. Hallowell does an excellent job of relating any clinical information to understandable, everyday concepts that the listener can truly comprehend.
As a person with ADD, the stories in the book provoked a plethora of emotions. Most noticeably, the author generated an indescribable sense of “inner peace” after the first few moments! Shortly after the introduction, I was convinced Dr. Hallowell wrote this book while following me around for the last 27 years! I occasionally looked over my shoulder suspicious he was in the back seat! Some stories brought on a few memories of frustration, sadness, anger and pain. It inspired and motivated me to better myself. It made me satisfied, peaceful and happy by encouraging me to focus on the GREAT, UNIQUE qualities I have and things I do BETTER than most. It made me laugh out loud listening to such similar stories from other people when you think you are the ONLY one. Most importantly, it has given me strength, hope, courage and determination to improve my quality of life, set goals and develop a plan to reach them.
Thanks, Dr. Halloway
