In this memoir of life with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Taylor offers readers an inside look at how he gets along on a daily basis as well as a guide for people in the same situation. He is a recent high school graduate, and part of the allure of his account is in finding out how someone with ADHD managed to write a book in the first place. Each chapter covers specific issues such as being bullied, getting organized, and feeling isolated. After relating a personal experience and his handling of it, Taylor advises readers on what to do should they find themselves in the same place. He also shares his perspective on coping with ADHD and speaks to what can be learned. The foreword by Lara Honos-Webb (The Gift of ADHD: How To Transform Your Child's Problems into Strengths) supports Taylor's central theme that while ADHD needs to be recognized and treated, it does not entirely define a person, whose strengths should be recognized. Students struggling with ADHD and their parents will benefit from the author's insights. Recommended for public and high school libraries.
