It's very easy to read, even for us ADD readers. Both the authors are ADD and wrote the book in a very ADD friendly manner. I understand myself so much better after getting this.
It's a little outdated, and gives tips like "get a watch with an alarm in it" in the era of smartphones, so maybe it could use a third edition, but as long as you adapt the principle behind the techniques, it's still great.
My favorite part is the chapter on ADD-friendly meditation. For years I've struggled with meditation, and nobody ever had any useful advice to give me other than "keep at it, you'll get it eventually." This book is worth the price for that chapter alone, at least to me, although every chapter is really great.
Another reviewer pointed out that the medical sections are outdated. That is a very practical and true observation. But the general point that someone with ADD/ADHD shouldn't automatically reject medication is nonetheless valid.

That being said, this book needs some serious updating. The mention early on of a VCR was the first red flag. There is no mention of texting, instant messaging, email or cell phones that are THE biggest challenges for someone who suffers with this.
