I wish I would’ve read it sooner and had more things to talk about but he had another better job lined up for him. There is no greater lesson in life than regret and the cliche of not going to live my life without any regrets is truly false, because without this pain in my heart I would not have appreciated this book and why he suggested in the first place. I wish I don’t have any regrets but at the same time I have this lesson learned and I will not forsaken this feeling.
If you or your child suffers (or you suspect suffers) from ADD, read this. It opens up avenues of growth and healing for those with ADD that no one else has - and they could be recommended to many human beings with positive results, but could be life changing to those with ADD.
