Now, with The ADDed Dimension, there's a single book that can help Authors Kate Kelly, Peggy Ramundo, and Steven Ledingham are sensitive, insightful, caring, and 'diagnosable' people with an extraordinary compassion and understanding for the special skills, insights, and challenges of adults with ADD And so it is only natural that they would write a book that answers the perpetual battle cry of the selfaware ADD adult 'What's next?' What's next, of course, is celebration and selfrealization The ADDed Dimension is a celebration of life, the human condition, and all those odd quirks that cause ADD people to instantly recognize one another, even in a crowd, and know that we're all members of the same tribe And in that recognition is p0owerful selfrealization If this book affects you as it did me, you'll giggle and smile and cry and laugh out loud Over and over again, it took me back through my life into lessons learned, pain s survived, and joys relived Celebration and selfrealization: In this book they are the essence of healing and living They are the essence of survival and growth They are the essence of spiritual awakening and regeneration They are the essence of Kate, Peggy, and Steven, come to think of it Enjoy.~~back coverI've read several books on ADD now, always searching for better understanding of the condition, and ways to cope with it For me, this book was too vague about ADD, and not very useful for learning how to cope with it Perhaps because I wasn't diagnosed until I was in my 60s, I am less interested in homilies about regenerating my creativity or about learning to let my child out to play I'minterested in learning how to cope with the consequences of a life sullied by ADD and its comorbities.
It only took me a few months to finish this tiny book, but I finally understand what ADD is and it seems to run in my family It's so commonly combined with hyperactivity (which does not run in my family) Basically, from what I have read, it's just that ADDer's brains work differntly than nonADDers We have a difficult time concentrating on things that don't interest us, but can be easily absorbed by challenging, interesting things We are daydreamers, which can be a good thing Unfortunately, since the Victorian era, our culture rewards the drudges as I call them They are the ones who don't think outside the box and follow all of our (current) societies rules Most, not all, people in our society who have followed the rules have been rewarded with material gains A very small number of the ADDers who've become successful in the Arts have also been rewarded This book has made me accept who I am and to no longer question the choices I've made I'm happy with myself and my life and am thrilled to join the ranks of the others who've marched to the beat of a different drummer! We might see some changes in the century I look forward to finding out! This is another book i still read because this isof the common themes that add people face everyday with various issues (Another book i read is Add and Creativity by Lynn Weiss) The reson i got this book is because i like to read on disabity topics and i know a friend who has ADD and i forget sometimes she has it because she acts normals sometimes LOL From Reading this hoo boy what a eyeopener to many things they struggles from time to time.I would recommend those who knows someone or the person has ADD to read this book because the authors shows many postive and humourous techinquinces to their ADD.
