Publisher's Summary

For the millions of adults diagnosed with ADHD, The Disorganized Mind will provide expert guidance on what they can do to make the most of their lives. The inattention, time mismanagement, procrastination, impulsivity, distractibility, and difficulty with transitions that often go hand-in-hand with ADHD can be overcome with the unique approach that Nancy Ratey brings to turning these behaviors around. The Disorganized Mind addresses the common issues confronted by the ADHD adult:

  • "Where did the time go?"
  • "I'll do it later, I always work better under pressure anyway."
  • "I'll just check my email one more time before the meeting...."
  • "I'll pay the bills tomorrow - that will give me time to find them."

Professional ADHD coach and expert Nancy Ratey helps listeners better understand why their ADHD is getting in their way and what they can do about it.

    "Love it, thank you"

    Thank you for creating this book. I was very young when I was diagnosed and my mom decided not to give me medication and not talk about it. I’ve been embarrassed of having it but didn’t really Now what it was. I’ve been so hard on my self for years and this book didn’t just liberate me but gave me solutions. I wish there was a section of school and College suggestions. That would really help

    "Useful Teaching Stories creatively insightful"

    For the many adults who would be diagnosed if evaluated or who are receiving medical treatments of primarily medication, the behavioral coaching offered here in is very valuable information. The style is well explained by the stories of single emphasis focus. This is an excellent style for self improvement. Get it!
