Sharing the stories of highly successful people with ADHD, Dr. Archer offers a vitally important and inspiring new way to recognize ADHD traits in oneself or in one's loved ones, and then leverage them to great advantage - without drugs. As someone who not only has ADHD himself but also has never used medication to treat it, Dr. Archer understands the condition from a unique standpoint.
I truly like to keep positive and approach ADHD with a strength based treatment and mindset. I wouldn't recommend it as a first book to read on the subject.
I don't my opinion to keep someone from reading this book, however it really bashes many forms of tried and true treatment and strategies. Not sure where some of the statistics came from. Best if you read as many books as you can. Best advice I ever received on ADHD is from Dr Ned Hallowell..... "No one person has all the answers."

On The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting, Dr. Brené Brown invites us on a journey to transform the lives of parents and children alike. Drawing on her 12 years of research on vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame, she presents ten guideposts to creating what she describes as "wholehearted" families where each of us can continually learn and grow as we reach our full potential.
I'm glad that Dr. Brown narrated this audiobook. No one else can read her work and relay the full emotion, presence, and reflection like she does.
Winners in business aren't the ones who do the most things; the winners are the ones who do the most important things. Be the Best at What Matters Most is about the one essential strategy for those who are or want to be business leaders, entrepreneurs, owners, or managers. Simplify, focus, and win by outperforming all your competition on those things that create real value for the customer. This is about substance, not flash, and the ultimate "wow" factors of high-quality performance, consistency, and relentless improvement.
I wasted time, by not getting around to Mr. Calloway's books, thinking it only applied to corporations and bigger organizations. This message is perfect at any level. I think it's easy to get spun around and get off course with attempting to do too much, looking for the silver bullet, making our operation and mission way too complicated. I believe most people will tend to say "this is too simple". But it is. We make it too hard. The hard part is stopping to evaluate, making changes and implementing the ideas we know we should be doing.

The Success Principles by Jack Canfield, co-creator of the phenomenal best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series, will teach you how to increase your confidence, tackle daily challenges, live with passion and purpose, and realize all your ambitions. This audio spells out the timeless principles used by successful men and women throughout history. And the fundamentals are the same for all people and all professions, even if you're currently unemployed.
Any book I think is valuable, I get the audio version as well. This recording is just as good as the book. If you like to do reinforce your learning with audio.... just do it.
In 1994, Driven to Distraction sparked a revolution in our understanding of attention deficit disorder. Now a second revolution is under way in the approach to ADD, and the news is great. Drug therapies, our understanding of the role of diet and exercise, even the way we define the disorder, all are changing radically. And doctors are realizing that millions of adults suffer from this condition, though the vast majority of them remain undiagnosed and untreated.
Have you listened to any of Dan Cashman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
He has a great voice for this book. I always prefer the author to record the audio, but Dan does a great job. Thought it matched up well with Dr. Hallowell's style.
Any additional comments?
I have the book, but its hard to get through it all. So getting the audio was great way to finish the book and reinforce by listening to it again.
