Overview

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).

Adult ADHD: What You Need to Know 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.

He was forced to face his condition and wrote this book to help readers understand ADHD better. Because of his experience, David knows what ADHD is and the questions you may have about it.

Questions like:

* Is ADHD even real? Does it exist in adults? And if so, what does it look like and how do I know if I have it?

* Won't anyone who takes Ritalin or Adderall get very focused?

* A lot of people say that Ritalin or Adderall stops working for them. Does that actually happen?

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.

Heck, the book even has an interview in it with Dr. Ari Tuckman, Vice President of the ADD association, where he clears up many misconceptions about the condition in adults.

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.
