You take control by working around each obstacle, one at a time. Working Around ADHD: How to take control, one obstacle at a time introduces 10 proven control factors that will show you:

What workaround to use for each obstacle, &
How to work around obstacles.
This book was designed with the ADHD brain in mind. Many self-help books written for people with ADHD don't seem to actually be designed for people with ADHD. There is usually too much information on each page. This author, who has ADHD, completed an initial draft that was written like a typical text-driven book. He was shocked and dismayed to realize that his own book was not the kind of book that he would want to read. Too many words. He went back to the drawing board and condensed the information into its essence and rewrote the book. This version of the book is designed to be easy on the mind. Information is byte sized. There are lots of visuals. There is humor, at time irreverent. There is color. The book challenges adults with ADHD to relax and reframe ADHD as, a series of obstacles to be worked around, one at a time. That is how you tame a 300 lb gorilla.
