A must have for any adult with ADD
on September 5, 2016
I am someone who spent the first 23 years of their life dealing with un-diagnosed depression, anxiety, and ADD. For a long time I had trouble in work, school, and my personal life due to these issues. I finally sought treatment in late 2014 when I started to see a therapist once a week and eventually began to see a psychiatrist every so often too. In the last 2 years I've made tremendous strides on managing what I deal with on a day to day basis. Recently my therapist and I started to focus more on my ADD and she recommended this book to me to help with many of the organizational issues I encounter each day.
This book is FANTASTIC! I cannot recommend this book enough to people who are dealing with ADD especially as an adult. The chapters are short, but very informative. The book does a great job at keeping your attention for short bursts. They are always giving you new information on how to put plans into actions so that you can better organize your life. They cover a a lot of topics including organizing your time, your house (including your bills), and your overall life. The book gives concrete examples of behavior you maybe suffering from at the start of each chapter so that you can identify if you are dealing with the same issues. The book not only gives you a breakdown of things you can do to help yourself, but also how your friends/family & professionals can help you if you need it.
Even though this book is over 10 years old it is still very relevant to the fast paced world we live in now and I've had tremendous success in implementing the strategies in this book into my own life. One of the best purchases I've made in the last several years considering how much of an impact it has made. My only criticism is that I wish they'd write a new book considering how much the internet and technology has changed our lives since this book as been published.
