Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is a real pleasure to read Tuckman's superbly rendered book on ADHD in adults, for it is so well-reasoned, science-based, information-rich, to the point, and finally—useful! Apart from wishing I had written it, I sincerely wish that you will read it."  —Russell A. Barkley, PhD, clinical professor of psychiatry, Medical University of South Carolina



"Tuckman has filled a huge gap in our understanding of adults who suffer from ADHD . . . This book is a valuable contribution to the literature and will be a treasured resource."  —Harvey C. Parker, PhD, cofounder of Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder



"Tuckman has authored a state of the art volume deftly blending science and clinical experience to provide a reasoned, reasonable and eminently useful treatment guide for adult ADHD. He writes from a strong scientific and clinical framework."  —Sam Goldstein, PhD, research professor of psychology, George Mason University

It's very, very clearly written.

It is not the kind of book that I, for one, would read from start to finish.

The book is superb! It's clear, comprehensive and to-the-point, reflecting the years Dr. Tuckman has spent facilitating CHADD support groups for adults with ADHD. I agree with the previous reviewer - it's a true gift to all of us interested in and affected by ADHD. Plus, he's put great information free for the downloading on the book's site, [...], including a series of podcasts summarizing key points. I routinely recommend the podcasts to my patients with ADHD - it's easy to start off by listening to something short, and great for people who don't like to read or are auditory-preference processors.

With a 'just-right' balance of neuroscience and wisdom-of-experience, compassion and accountability, "More Attention, Less Distraction" outlines how ADHD can be understood, managed, and not be so crazy-making. The advice and strategies are practical and readily applicable. Buy this one first.

Format: Paperback
I didn't think it was possible to find a book that really spoke to my experience as an ADD adult. I was wrong. Dr. Tuckman surprised me time after time as he captured aspects of ADD that are so true, but are not even hinted at by other authors.

I'm so glad I overcame my reluctance to buy yet another book on adult ADD. I have so many, and to be honest, I never really read any of them--just skimmed parts of them--very ADD behavior. They're all so much alike, with the same tired, ineffective advice. But this one, I started my skimming behavior and was immediately pulled in by the overwhelming feeling of being understood.

Dr. Tuckman addresses the problems at the heart of ADD. Disorganization is not caused by a failure to know how to organize, it's an avoidance of being excruciatingly bored while doing it. I want to burn all the books that suggest "get three boxes." How many times have you heard that?

He understands the "getting started" issue and addresses it at length. He knows how we've been treated by others and how the legacy of criticism effects us. He even knows how we come to mistrust ourselves.

The only thing this book lacks is a decent cover--that cover says "stock photo: business success" to me and has nothing to do with the book's contents. So if it seems off-target to you too, ignore it. You need this book.

Thank you, Dr. Tuckman

Format: Paperback
I have read a whole heap of books on ADHD since being diagnosed and none of them have ever given me what I wanted. They tend to focus on case studies of suffers, lack information for adults with ADHD, have too much information on what to do if you think you might have ADHD, be outdated, focus on pseudo-science/'natural remedies', contain loads of fluffy talk such as 'ADHD is really a gift' and they quite often lack any real helpful information on what you can do to begin to address the issues that you're faced with as an adult with ADHD. More Attention, Less Deficit is very different.

Dr Tuckman's book is split up into 4 sections: 'Understanding ADHD in adults', 'Start with effective treatment', 'Build the necessary skills' and 'Improve specific areas of your life'. The book is wonderfully accessible and it's designed to be read however you like - you can read it right through or just dip into it when you want to read about a particular topic. Personally I read it right through, but I still find myself dipping into it all the time as I try to put new skills into action or try and remind myself where I went wrong.

If you want a concise, up to date, accessible and authoritative book explaining what adult ADHD is, how to live with it and that is packed with scientifically sound information (rather than dodgy new age weirdness)then look no further. If you're like me and struggle with reading anyway don't waste any time or money on any other book. Once you have read and adsorb this one any further information you could possibly want is on the web.

I just can't say enough good about this book. It has a wealth of fantastic information for the individual with adult ADHD. At the start of each chapter, there's a summary of the different sections of that chapter. How much more ADHD friendly can you get?

It's very, very clearly written.

Dr. Tuckman's afterward brought tears to my eyes. He talks about all the pain that adult ADHD sufferers (especially those born before the mid 70s) often experience, and how they're often judged -- labeled as lazy, unmotivated, etc. His compassion shows throughout the entire book.

And his counsel and information are solid, not speculative.

This would also be a fantastic gift to give to family members, friends, etc. of someone with adult ADHD. It's highly educational and very clear. Anybody reading it will learn so much.

Thank you, Dr. Tuckman, for this great gift!

I've been wondering about whether people without ADD/ADHD should write books about how to live better lives while having ADD/ADHD. The problem isn't that they don't know a lot of people who have it, or that they haven't read a lot of stuff about it, or maybe even seen some of the results that have helped it. The problem is that they just don't actually KNOW ABOUT IT from the perspective of what it's really and truly like. Ari Tuckman's book may be most helpful for people trying to help or live with those with ADD/ADHD.

This is a solid, information packed book. It contains little that isn't covered in the other popular ADD/ADHD books (I've read almost of them) but it does offer a few useful insights If you're someone who reads a lot. If that's you, it's worth a fast read. If you're someone who struggles with reading, but you really need some help fast, skip this book and go forDriven To Distraction : Recognizing and Coping with Attention Deficit Disorder from Childhood Through Adulthood instead.

More Attention Less Deficit has it's plusses. It's very well organized broken into chapters, subchapters and then the material itself, so it's brilliant for skimming. The author may be going to far however and in many cases I would have appreciated less bulleting and more meat.

Perhaps my biggest insight came from, "It Starts with Stopping," the idea that a little pause before you come to a decision, or act on a decision, or blurt out whatever is welling up inside of you, will help hugely. Since I have some kind of problem with exactly this every single day, this concept is potentially life changing.
