I read through this book, and I think there is a LOT of value in here for *men* too! I think this book, personally, is even better than her 2nd book.

This one covers AD/HD as a whole. It doesn't exclused the issues women with the hyperactivity face.


Another great one for Women is called "Understanding Women with AD/HD".

I have to chime in here too. My book is so dog-earred. I love this book. I love the part about the personal ad for a woman. We are expected to do so much and cope too. Some of us were not born with all the accessories included.

this is the first book i bought...i was diagnosed in october, but the thought of doing any research never crossed my mind. i found reading a book like this for me was difficult, but reading it in bits and pieces on the subjects that i felt applied to me was very helpful.

Hi, I'm new here and am looking for as much information as I can get my hands on about ADD. I'm heading to Barnes-N-Noble as soon as I get a chance and picking up these books. I'm especially interested in the one that relates to disorganization in the home. I have so much trouble in that area. I can't wait to sit down with a cup of coffee and just read. Dee

I agree -- this is an excellent book! Really helps deal with the guilt / baggage that women face when they can't live up to the "ideal" role of womanhood that society demands of us (and hey, why should we anyway?) I told my doc he should recommend this to all his female ADD patients.

This was the first ADD book I read and I think she musta set up hidden camera in my house and used me as her subject :p

I had borrowed it from the library but I NEED my own copy...oh well, just another thing to tack on to my neverending to do list HEH

I read this book and I found out I'm have elements of both the hyperactive and the non hyperactive. I didn't realize some of my behaviors were also ADD behaviors, things like hesitation, shyness, chaos in the head etc... Wonderful book, I highly recommend it!!

Excellent book, even at 10 years old! I just read it in the fall of 2004-first book on the subject of ADD, after I had suspected ADHD for about a year or so. The book clinched for me the need to get assessed. I definitely recognized myself in the book without even remotely trying.
