Real Tips, Real Strategies for Taking Charge of Your ADHD,
This review is from: Odd One Out: The Maverick's Guide to Adult ADD (Paperback)
I read Odd One Out in two days but got years' worth of good, solid advice, strategies and insights. This is a book that cuts to the chase. Jennifer doesn't spend page after page walking you through various theories, wordy thoughts and ideas; she grabs you and TELLS you what will work by giving you specific tools to help you become a Maverick- someone who embraces their ADHD and moves forward in spite of it.
Throughout the book, she peppers it with her own personal experiences, which immediately gives a feeling of warmth and connection to the reader. The tips and tools work, thus offering a nearly immediate sense of empowerment to the reader.
I especially liked the chapter, "Live Out Loud." Here, she explains what you need to do to live the authentic you and to move forward by embracing rather than fighting your ADHD.
This is a book that will help anyone who has been diagnosed with ADHD, whether it was a month ago or 10 years ago. If you are feeling stuck and unsure as to how to get your life on track, pick up this book, follow her tips and you, too will take charge of your life and begin living it as a warrior.
I will be recommending this one to all of my clients!
