I find the following things about this book pretty amazing:
First, it speaks about how the symptoms and certain peculiarities (which one might not know are due to ADHD) manifests in an individual. Dr. Tuckman's strategy to deal with ADHD is multifaceted with the most important aspect being education about the illness.
I was able to RELATE MY EXPERIENCES AND REACTION MECHANISMS to this book which tell me that he knows pretty well what he is talking about.
The way this book is organized it just brilliant. It's hard to lose track of information in this book. Also there are the perforations on the bottom corner of every page which you can just fold or tear off to mark that you've read this page.
Treating adult ADHD is about treating the defense mechanisms and reaction mechanisms that one has developed because of the illness over the years as much as it is about treating the illness itself.
I'd recommend this book to anyone with adult ADHD.
What sets this book apart is that you can simply pick it up any time a problem is facing you, look that problem up in the table of contents, and turn directly to a page with something that will help you right now.
I'll say that again because it's just so critically important to busy people with short attention spans: You can pick this book up, turn straight to the thing you need help with, and get that help in less than 10 minutes.
That's what we've been missing. This is the first book of its kind. It's the on-the-fly troubleshooting guide we've been waiting for, the book with over 350 pages of stuff you can start doing today to rapidly get better at life.
This is the only book I recommend, whether it's to parents of ADHD children, or to adult sufferers both newly and long-since diagnosed. It's just more useful than the other ones out there.
About me: 51 year old woman. I have a lot of the characteristics of AD/HD, but haven't been diagnosed or even evaluated for it. I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, there's no doubt about that diagnosis. When you've had a hypomanic episode, you know it! This book is not too difficult for me to read. Whether the problems I have are caused by bipolar disorder or by AD/HD, I'm applying the ideas presented in this book to my own life and finding them to be helpful. (I've tried reading bipolar self-help books, and could never read more than a few pages before giving up). The author recommends a combination of medication, psychology, and/or coaching, plus helping yourself through the techniques he presents in this book. Medication is out for me, as stimulants are not recommended for those with bipolar disorder. In any case, I'd already discovered during treatment for bipolar, and in other medical treatments, the side effects of medications are too much for me to handle. At this time, psychology and/or coaching are not a option for me. But this book, written at a level I can read, has given me hope.
One more thing, I started reading the book about a week ago, and am over halfway through.
