Editorial Reviews

Review

"ADD in adults is turning out to be among the most impairing disorders seen in outpatient mental health clinics in terms of the number of major life activities that it adversely affects and the severity with which it impacts each of them. One such domain is that of money management. In this first-ever book devoted to the impact of adult ADD on one’s financial life, the authors do a masterful job of both providing a review of the most common problem areas adults with ADD are likely to experience as well as a richly detailed set of recommendations for how best to try and resolve those problems. The book will be of tremendous benefit to not only adults with ADD, but their spouses/partners, parents or other family members, and clinicians who routinely specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of ADD in adults."
Russell A. Barkley, PhD, clinical professor of psychiatry at Medical University of South Carolina and research professor of psychiatry at SUNY Upstate Medical University



"The guidelines and inventories in this self-help manual can enable people with ADD to make the most of their treatment. While medicine improves core symptom problems, these financial management skills can further reduce ADD consequences and impairments."
Richard L. Rubin, MD, director of Vermont Clinical Study Center and adjunct associate professor at Dartmouth Medical College

ADD and Your Money is an excellent financial resource for people who suffer from ADD. There are several things that I like about this book.

1) It covers all areas of personal finance in great detail -- managing bills, debts, investments, insurance, etc.
2) It gives specific and practical strategies tools, tips and techniques for improving one's personal financial situation.
3) It is written in an optimal manner for people who have ADD. This enables maximum absorption and retention.

Overall, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. The authors have put out a very useful and important product.

This is the first time I have ever written a review, but I felt so strongly about this book that I felt it my duty to warn others. This book is very, very thin. I was so excited to find a book that might help me with some of the impulsiveness of add. I could not believe how ridiculous is was. I felt like they talked to me like I was an idiot. The information in this book was written for someone in 5th grade who maybe did not know what a will was or a 401K. As far as help for ADD it simply stated that people with Add have more impulse control problems. Well, thanks, I already knew that. I feel like such a fool for actually spending 17.00 dollars on this worthless pamphlet. I would like to recommend Financial Recovery by Karen McCall. I have read just about every book there is on the subject and this was a great one. This great book spends time on the root of the problem since most of us adults know basic money terms and definitions.

ADD and Your Money could also have been reviewed in our 'Health' section for its tips relating to ADD management, but is considered here because the self-help focus is on money management, not health. It takes ADD tendencies and links them to financial pitfalls directly related to ADD symptoms, offering a system for keeping track of bills, creating budgets, and other challenges the ADD personality finds particularly difficult. It's a top pick for any library where ADD patrons seek keys to everyday living.

I have purchased this book ADD and Your Money after listening to a teleconference online with Dr. Stephanie Sarkis through an ADD support group that I participate with. The materials discussed during the conference was very informative and nailed all the problems I have with managing money.

I found the book to be useful and simplistic to the point that I didn't feel information overload when reading it. Each chapter discussed was straight forward and to the point of how to see things and what I need to do to get myself on track financially. The book doesn't take long to read which is a plus for me with my busy lifestyle. I also appreciate this book that its helped with my guilt that I can learn how to manage my money.

I would also suggest to anyone that has adult ADD/ADHD and has difficulty managing money to take the course Financial Peace with Dave Ramsey. In conjunction with this course and Dr. Sarkis book I feel I'm on the right track. Cut up all credit cards and use cash. Don't use debit cards unless its an emergency. If our previous generations could survive without them so we can we.
