Post Books - Women and ADD

Understanding Women With AD/HD
by Kathleen G. Nadeau (Editor), Patricia O. Quinn (Editor) (2002)

This is an Execellent book. If you liked Sari Solden's book about Women with ADD you should love this one. It has a great deal of info about ADD and other conditions that may also occur with ADD. This is a must have book for women with ADD.(2002)

Women With Attention Deficit Disorder: Embracing Disorganization at Home and in the Workplace by Sari Solden .(1995)

This is an excellent book. Here is book that finally addresses ADD with
out hyperactivity. I recommend it to all women with or with out ADD.(1995)

Gender Issues and AD/HD: Research, Diagnosis, and Treatment
by Kathleen G. Nadeau (Editor), Patricia O. Quinn (Edi
tor) 2002
This is a great resource for professionals who treat and work with females with AD/HD, females with AD/HD, and parents of females with AD/HD. Though the book may be intended for professionals, the setup of the book is very ADD Friendly and the language is easy to understand.

I think reading this book will be very benefical to women with AD/HD and family members of females with AD/HD. It may put females ahead of the game when they seek treatment for AD/HD. It may give them a better idea of whether the professional who is treating them acutally understands AD/HD.

Females who are currently in treatment for AD/HD should consider asking the professional treating her if he or she has read this book. If the answer if no it may be in her best interest to suggest that he or she does.

Re: Books - Women and ADD

I just read, "You Mean I'm not Lazy, Stupid, or Crazy?" and found it very helpful. It's written by 2 women diagnosed as adults.

Re: Books - Women and ADD

I recently found "ADHD according to Zoe" and am enjoying it thoroughly. It reads like an old friend is helping you through your issues, but at the same time, has much that feels like a research project from college... in a good way (for us nerdy-folk). Lets just say I have hi-lighted much of it already and I'm not even half-way through.

Conquering Chronic Disorganization by Judith Koberg

My favorite book is "Conquering Chronic Disorganization" by Judith Kolberg. It is a gem, for sure. I first got the book (way back in 2003!) and have still held onto it. It's not just about disorganization, its about your style, the way your brain works, you could apply the information to anything.

Don't let the cover deceive you, it just doesn't match the book. It's thin, too. But its the best book I've ever read, I think people just dismiss it. I identified with ADD tendancies in 1993 and did not have the resources that are so plentiful now.

Ms. Kolberg was the original Marie Kondo - she actually has a chapter about emotional organizing. I am thankful that I had that information early on in my ADD journey.

I've written a longer book review on my website, or you can just head over to Amazon, the book doesn't cost much.
