NOOK Book (eBook)
$2.99 price


This book is perfect for you if you are an adult and have or are starting to worry that you have attention deficit disorder, with or without the hyperactivity (ADD or ADHD).

It takes the 10% that is actually useful from many books and puts it together in an easy to read, highly accurate and informative book.

The reason this book will help you is because it was written by David, an adult who has ADHD but didn't want to get treatment.
He didn't believe it was real. Or that treatment could help.

But since then, he has become a recognized expert in ADHD. David's writings on ADHD have been read by hundreds of thousands of people.

Not only does the book answer important questions in a fun, interesting and engaging way - it provides plenty of citations so you know the science is accurate.

Some of what it covers:

• What's the difference between normal inattention and ADHD?
• What are the medications and how do they compare to each other?
• How does one succeed in their career with ADHD?
• How can we prove adult ADHD exists?
• Can diet contribute or cause symptoms?

It also talks about:

• The 33 ways to check if you have ADHD
• The 4 secrets to success with adult ADHD
• Why it is often ignored in adults
• How to distinguish ADHD from other conditions

Editorial Reviews

Mark Goodman
I am 45 years old and was never diagnosed with ADHD. Thanks to David's extremely helpful book, I was able to understand ADHD and how it was affecting my life. It managed to capture exactly what I've been going through - I was shocked to discover what I thought was just my way of doing things were actually symptoms of ADHD.

Thanks to this book I have received treatment for ADHD and it has changed my life and work for the better!
Juan Terman
I found the book very interesting - it is very inspiring and encouraged me to take action. I have not read a book that has the same hopeful approach this one does, and it really helped me out.
Robin O'Reilly
I have been doing a lot of research lately and found this book's content to be helpful but not intimidating. Most of the information I found is either too medically dry or directed toward raising children with ADHD.

I have much more to learn but you provided an excellent jumping-off point. I found the book very helpful and I am going to share it with my older children.

    Great book and an easy read!

    The content and writing style were both great. Highly recommended for anyone that has or thinks they may have ADHD. Answers a lot of questions you're probably asking yourself and gives helpful context to a compled subject.
