After years of half-joking about having an attention disorder, I finally started looking for a good resource for adults. This particular monograph hits the mark on staying away from some of the major problems many self-help books suffer from. The book is written in accessible language and immediately takes the pressure off of the potentially ADD reader by providing clues on how to successfully peruse the book. More than its practicality, the book is built on thoughtfully processed data about adults with variations of attention disorders. The book provides reliable information on potential resources and strongly supports the reader in obtaining a formal diagnosis in order to make a workable plan to manage the disorder. ( )

Very helpful, practical coping ideas. I don't have ADD, but bought the book because I have cognition problems. Got lots of great information. ( )

I read this book many years ago, and found it helpful, although I'm not sure it entirely applies to me. (I don't think I have ADD). I do think it's a good book on the subject, though. ( )
