Format: Hardcover
This book was recommended to me by a psychiatrist. Loved the practical ideas. Many different areas of thought are discussed - CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, Executive Functioning, Medication, Recent Research and more. The book is easy to read and nicely repeats the main ideas throughout the book. Very encouraging with real examples of people struggling and then thriving. Way to go authors!! I would not recommend this in the ebook format. There are many useful forms that you will want to photocopy to use. I wish I had bought the hard copy.

It was Dr. Bilkey who first detected my likely adult ADHD that was later confirmed through SPECT technology. This is a very reassuring book for literate adults who are working hard at managing ADHD and ADHD-like symptoms. It also helps the families of such people to better understand them. There should be at least one copy of this book on every public library shelf and in every school board teacher reference library. Having read the book, I would love to hear the authors speak on it at an educational conference.

I am very lucky to have been diagnosed by one of the authors, Dr. Bilkey. He is a treasure in the community where we live and I refer people to him weekly. This book has broadened my knowledge of ADHD and given me new strategies to help me achieve the important things in my life.
