Format: Paperback
There is very little of substance to this book with regard to concrete suggestions on strategies a person can use to work with ADD as an adult - especially in the work place; lots of "stories." There is great emphasis about enlisting the help of family, friends, coworkers. People with ADD just want to work with it; they don't want their world to be involved in it. A very disappointing missive.

Format: Paperback
I was hoping for some practical tips on how to manage ADD at my current job. Most of those tips--and there are only a few basic ones--can be found in the first 1/3 of the book. The second 2/3 focus instead on getting a different job and getting help from third party professionals. I notice that most of the positive reviews come from some of the kinds of professionals recommended in the last part of the book. Not that there's anything wrong with that, or with them per se, but there's just not a lot in this slim volume for people who love their jobs and who are interested in staying there and striving toward greater success where they're at already.

I had such high hopes for this book guiding me through some very challenging times at work. While I gained some valuable tips from Making ADD Work:... All in all it has not been as helpful as some of the other books I am consulting. It comes off as more of a discussion group than a true problem solving solution.

Format: Paperback
What I love about "Making ADD Work" is that Blythe Grossberg gets to the heart of the issues facing ADDers in the workplace. She doesn't waste too much time explaining ADD, but rather dives deeply into the lives and work habits of adults with ADD who have successfully learned to cope with their challenges and utilize their strengths.

Dr. Grossberg focuses on the three key areas that are most helpful for adults with ADD: improving work skills, finding the right career path, and getting support. Additionally, the book is packed with inspirational stories and expert advice. I highly recommend it to all my clients!

If I were unable to use the internet this book would have been great. This information is largely the same information you can find on websites such as askjan.org for free under the Attention Deficit Disorder section. They also cover a host of different disabilities that may coexist with ADD.
Better books on this subject are available, but time spent searching information on the internet beginning with the Job Accommodation Network (JAN) is a must.
