“Divided into noteworthy sections, and a ‘stop anywhere’ format, this book is an easy read covering a complex topic….The book presents up-to-date facts combined with strategies for living successfully with ADHD as an adult….This book is a valuable tool for the layperson and professional alike. The layout of the book is brilliant, making it easy to read and just what someone who may struggle with ADHD would need. This includes revisiting chapters for a review or providing a reminder of what has just been read. What a clever way to show the author knows his stuff! I encourage everyone to read a copy. It will improve your knowledge of behavior in general.”
