Very insightful for me, an adult with ADHD I just wish he didn t push being medicated as such a strong course of action I also don t agree with the theory that it s caused by an underdevelopment in the brain, a chemical imbalance, while it might be considered an underdevelopment, is muchcomforting Otherwise it answered several questions and life experiences that had been left a mystery, for me, for years For example ADHD is a form of blindnesstime blindness. This book is a good example of lying with statistics The author ignores the known obvious causes of ADHD and comes up with unproven claims that ADHD is caused by brain development problems or general chemical unbalances At the same time he s a big fan of diagnosing ADHD with the evaluation process , but he fails to mention that these questionnaires claim over 85% of people have ADHD So by his logic over 85% of people have a chemical imbalance or an underdeveloped brain He doesn t put these This book is a good example of lying with statistics The author ignores the known obvious causes of ADHD and comes up with unproven claims that ADHD is caused by brain development problems or general chemical unbalances At the same time he s a big fan of diagnosing ADHD with the evaluation process , but he fails to mention that these questionnaires claim over 85% of people have ADHD So by his logic over 85% of people have a chemical imbalance or an underdeveloped brain He doesn t put these facts together of course The author mentions nothing of the fact that creating a diagnosis for ADHD was put forth by the marketing department of Eli Lilly He glosses over the addictive nature of amphetamines and the risk of heart damage these drugs cause The clear point to this book is to sell drugs, and to do so by creating a storyline for ADHD that isn t backed up by the facts #FREE DOWNLOAD ò Taking Charge of Adult ADHD » For adults with ADHD, problems with attention, planning, problem solving, and controlling emotions can make daily life an uphill battle Fortunately, effective help is out there No one is a better guide to how to get the best care and what sufferers can do for themselves than renowned ADHD researcher clinician Russell A Barkley Dr Barkley provides step by step strategies for managing symptoms and reducing their harmful impact Readers get hands on self assessment tools and skills building exercises, plus clear answers to frequently asked questions about medications and other treatments Specific techniques are presented for overcoming challenges in critical areas where people with the disorder often struggle work, finances, relationships, and Finally, an authoritative one stop resource for adults with ADHD who are ready to take back their livesSee also Dr Barkley s bestselling resource on childhood ADHD, Taking Charge of ADHD, Third Edition The Complete, Authoritative Guide for Parents Best book I ve read on Adult ADHD so far.

ADHD work It supported those citations and I highly recommend this book My criticism is that in sections in comes down hard on ADHD and uses some extreme examples of untreated ADHD Those examples seem outrageous and people that have milder forms or managed ADHD may find them hard to relate to or comparison that would diminish their own ADHD What a depressing book it was.Basically it says OK, so you have ADHD Sucks to be you Go through this huge laundry list of these and those things to do, don t forget to take your medication, find a mentor assuming anybody will want to deal with you, and who could blame them and if you are extremely lucky, and with heavy effort, maybe you can become half a normal man or woman who runs through all of this effortlessly, which you ll never be What a burden to society All of this is true pe What a depressing book it was.Basically it says OK, so you have ADHD Sucks to be you Go through this huge laundry list of these and those things to do, don t forget

a few helpful suggestions and I liked the breakdown of medications and explanation of how they work, but a lot of the book just wasn t relevant to my experience There was a huge portion dedicated to

a significant amount of time spent on muchsevere effects of impulsiveness such as drug use, criminality, being unable to manage your temper speak to others with respect, and dangerous and deadly driving It just didn t apply to my experience and was significantlytough love than I want or need to read I feel like this book was written with the classic male hyperactive impulsive disruptive ADHD person in mind Maybe it would be helpful to him, but it certainly missed the mark for me at most times.For the things I really do have serious issues with such as overspending, disorganization, inattentiveness to people I love, and issues controlling my weight, I didn t feel like any terribly useful suggestions were put forward I remember rolling my eyes at being told I m not important enough to need a smartphone, which is patently ridiculous because my smartphone s calendar function that syncs across all my devices and allows me to input multiple reminder alerts is the only way I really cope with my ADHD on a day to day basis at all, and the suggestion that I tape a picture of a hot thin celebrity to my fridge to keep me from impulse eating is just absolutely laughable to me I just didn t find this book helpful to my particular experience with ADHD If you re an impulsive hyperactive man who moves from job to job and drives fast and furious and gets on the wrong side of the law, maybe this book will berelevant to you and your experience This is so far the most useful book I ve read on ADHD I should have started with this one The chapters were short, which was nice.
