Publisher's Summary

If you have ADHD, your brain doesn't work in the same way as a "normal" or neurotypical brain does because it's wired differently. You and others may see this difference in circuitry as somehow wrong or incomplete. It isn't. It does present you with significant challenges like time management, organization skills, forgetfulness, trouble completing tasks, mood swings, and relationship problems.

In Your Brain's Not Broken, Dr. Tamara Rosier explains how ADHD affects every aspect of your life. You'll finally understand why you think, feel, and act the way you do. Dr. Rosier applies her years of coaching others to offer you the critical practical tools that can dramatically improve your life and relationships.

Anyone with ADHD - as well as anyone who lives with or loves someone with ADHD - will find here a compassionate, encouraging guide to living well and with hope.

Great book

I really enjoyed the contents of this book, however a PDF with all the questions & assessments in the book is necessary. I’m debating whether I should return the audiobook & buy the physical copy or the kindle version. Pausing the audio book, especially at the end, & answering all the questions 1 by 1 is not convenient nor is it ADHD friendly. I also found the narrators voice to be super monitor which at times made it hard to stay focused. Kind of funny for a book about ADHD.

Don’t let the publisher dissuade you!

As a non-Christian, I was hesitant to purchase a book from a Christian publisher. I was pleased to find out that the author makes any sort of religious reference (i.e. god and the creator) twice in the entire book. It does not present a heavy-handed or preachy view of Christianity or any other particular faith practice. I’m glad I gave it a try because Dr. Rosier provides clear, actionable advice on how to live with ADHD.

HOWEVER, I do find it exploitive that a book obviously targeted at people who struggle to focus would neglect to include the appendices in a PDF along with the title. I have purchased several books from audible about a wide variety of topics that included PDFs far less useful than these would have been. That is a major and disappointing oversight by the publisher.

Overall, I am pleased with both the content and performance of this audio book. I highly recommend it for any person living with ADHD. If you can do it, the print or other visual version will better enable you to put Dr. Rosier’s advice into action.

Thank you!

This woman is a genius! This book opened so many windows into my own life, career, relationships, and emotions. It’s emotional being exposed to this type of understanding. Overwhelming realizing uniqueness of your struggles with a sense of community knowing you’re not alone. Thank you!

Highly recommend!

I think this book is as important and essential as Dr Russell Barkley’s books and J Russel Ramsay’s The Adult ADHD Toolkit book. The grid she designed for color coding tasks and how to deal with them and recognize our false beliefs..is genius to me! It would go really well with an ADHD coping system I’ve been trying to develop for myself (combines Atomic Habits principles and the bullet journal method and tracking).

I just wish this had a PDF companion!! I need the grid the author mentioned laid out in a drawing and questions to ask oneself to be written there as well. Otherwise it is too hard to keep up and try to implement it by listening alone. Please Dr Rosier add this! If you need help putting it together or designed you can hire a freelance graphic designer online for a reasonably small fee. I’d do it myself if I had time.

Get this book!

I turn 60 in a few months. My daughter wanted to get my grandson tested, so I decided to learn about ADHD. Within just a few pages I realized that the writer was identifying multiple brain issues that I have personally struggled with my entire life! I truly wish I had not learned this so late in life, but I cannot begin to say how life-changing just knowing that there’s a reason behind all of this constant fighting to be “like everyone else” and that there were ways to thrive with what I have.
If you have even the slightest indication that you, or someone you love, might have ADHD, get this book…now.
Spoiler alert…
The most eye-opening thing I learned was that a person can have ADHD and never be stereotypically hyperactive.

Love the book - HATE the narration

Its mechanical and sterile and not at all fitting for the subject or conducive for listening beyond the annoying narration. Especially with a brain like mine, that’s truly a shame…

Life Changing...

Recently got diagnosed with ADHD at 24 years old. Never occurred to me that I would have it, so I got this book hoping to learn more. I felt like I was reading my autobiography. Gave me confidence in the diagnosis as well as practical strategies for where to begin with managing ADHD. Thank you!!!

Excellent explanation

I’ve never had a book resonate with me as much as this one does. Explains so much. I struggle with emotional regulation but this explained it in a helpful way and introduced little things that can help when I start to spiral.

My life will never be the same!

I have spent many years trying to figure out what is the right way to do life. I’ve spent many years trying to figure this out. Why am I so different? Why do I feel like I have this in super power but rest I’m the only one that sees it? This question has plagued me when I win, when I lose, And everything in between. Hearing about the solve it grid for the first time will always be a memory that will stay stitched in my brain. “My brain is not broken” are the words that I’ve been needing to hear my whole life. I have such clarity now, I feel like I’m cheating. It feels like I have finally unlocked me, well, the best version of me. I’m so ready to take on the world and I don’t know if I would’ve done that without listening to this book. Thank you Susie Althens. Whoever you are, you allowed me to be a better husband, father, employee, Christian, and a better person overall for everybody I come in contact with. May God repay you in all his glory.

Brilliantly done.

Explains my adhd to me plainly. At 57 years of age and being diagnosed now left me feeling ‘broken’ but I now feel more self possessed and listening to this and other books on the subject has helped me move proactively and positively forward.

Fantastic book!

This book was a fantastic book that has helped me gain a deeper understanding of my brain. I live in the UK where I am currently on a waiting list for a diagnosis, and to receive a form of treatment; the waiting list is 7 or so months.

This book has provided me with some nifty advice and help in the meantime and for continued management.

Fantastic book that has provided answers and more

The clarity, structure, exercises, tone of and ideas in this book have come in so handy for someone who has been struggling for years and learning different skills without being always able to tell why I have struggled. The answer to the why has brought great relief and there are new techniques that can compliment my practice and already developed skills.

Useful

Thus book takes a different approach to others I've read or listened to, and provided me with new options to try. As someone with ADHD, the reader's style was unhelpful: soporific, at times it's obvious that she's not really engaged with the material herself. A more animated reader would help me focus and absorb more information.

Great, very relatable…have started to accept but this books really highlighted the areas I needed to work on.

Great strategies, empowering story. Only issue is can’t find the pDF that accompanies the book. Really great reflections. Will go back and do the activities so much to learn.
Vocals are a bit dry but otherwise very clear.
Very relatable stories and experiences depicted, as a female late to diagnosis I found the accounts overwhelming accurate.
