Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"ADD in adults is turning out to be among the most impairing disorders seen in outpatient mental health clinics in terms of the number of major life activities that it adversely affects and the severity with which it impacts each of them. One such domain is that of money management. In this first-ever book devoted to the impact of adult ADD on one’s financial life, the authors do a masterful job of both providing a review of the most common problem areas adults with ADD are likely to experience as well as a richly detailed set of recommendations for how best to try and resolve those problems. The book will be of tremendous benefit to not only adults with ADD, but their spouses/partners, parents or other family members, and clinicians who routinely specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of ADD in adults."
Russell A. Barkley, PhD, clinical professor of psychiatry at Medical University of South Carolina and research professor of psychiatry at SUNY Upstate Medical University

"The guidelines and inventories in this self-help manual can enable people with ADD to make the most of their treatment. While medicine improves core symptom problems, these financial management skills can further reduce ADD consequences and impairments."
Richard L. Rubin, MD, director of Vermont Clinical Study Center and adjunct associate professor at Dartmouth Medical College
