    This book is right on the money!

    This book is exellent. I found out that I was ADHD a few years ago. I never knew the social skills that I was missing. I really felt like the title says. This book has helped me a lot. I gave my copy away to a young man that I hope will take the time to read it. Hopefully he will reap the benefits of this wonderful guide.
