For the millions of adults diagnosed with ADHD The Disorganized Mind will provide expert guidance on what they can do to make the most of their lives.

The Disorganized Mind addresses the common issues confronted by the ADHD adult:

“Where did the time go?”

“I’ll do it later, I always work better under pressure anyway.”

“I’ll just check my e-mail one more time before the meeting…”

“I’ll pay the bills tomorrow – that will give me time to find them.”

Professional ADHD coach and expert Nancy Ratey helps readers better understand why their ADHD is getting in their way and what they can do about it. Nancy Ratey understands the challenges faced by adults with ADHD from both a personal and professional perspective and is able to help anyone move forward to achieve greater success. Many individuals with ADHD live in turmoil. It doesn’t have to be that way. You can make choices and imagine how things can change – this book will teach you how. By using ADHD strategies that have worked for others and will work for you, as well as learning how to organize, plan, and prioritize, you’ll clear the hurdles of daily living with a confidence and success you may never before have dreamed possible.

Nancy Ratey has the proven strategies that will help anyone with ADHD get focused, stay on track, and get things done - and finally get what they want from their work and their life.

Poor use of time is a major problem for too many of us. We were never diagnosed as ADD or AD/HD because we were too successful in school and never were problem students. But there was always something that just wasn't right. Our friends could get 10 or 20 times more done in the same amount of time but we were so creative and could put pieces together that they never even knew existed. Bosses love us for our innovative ideas and insight into complex problems. But at some point it all just gets too overwhelming. Papers, magazines, interesting articles pile up. Commitments and appointments get forgotten. We spend so much time trying to get organized but nothing sticks. Sound familiar? This book might be just what you need.

This is by far the most practical and helpful book on ADHD that I have discovered, and I have read many books on the subject. It provides specific, step by step guidance and coaching to help you live with ADHD and to leverage your thinking style into a fantastically productive life. So many self-help books promise so much. This one actually delivers! I found relevant and useful information for my own life on almost every page of this book. Every page of my copy is covered with my own notes and highlights. If other books on ADHD have left you feeling somehow unfulfilled, please try this one, you will not be disappointed!

I read five books on adult ADHD before reading Nancy's book. The Disorganized Mind is the best ADHD resource I have found. This book is filled with practical techniques for the common struggles of adults with ADHD. In this book, Nancy identifies the behavior, reason for the behavior, and effective techniques for overcoming them. The book is well organized and effectively presents concepts that allow for easy recall. You read, understand, implement, monitor and grow. Thank you for this great resource Nancy!
