This book is clearly written from and for the perspective of an extroverted, upwardly mobile class of people living with adult AD(H)D. For those who have suffered from more than being late to business meetings and having a messy desk, it falls a little short. While the author shows some keen insights on what we commonly deal with, she often speaks and writes as though it manifests in the same way in all people. Spelling errors and murky phrasing suggest that more careful editing was needed, but it gave it an "ADD moments" charm for me.
That said, I expect that any adult with AD(H)D will find validation, helpful suggestions, and an uncommon candor for the BS we often encounter in society. Few others have touched on the intense guilt and shame that often cripple people with AD(H)D to the extent Koretsky has.
