My 10 yo has mild autism, and he has major organizational and focusing issues. This book explains in very clear terms the challenges that face some kids, and steps that can be taken to minimize those challenges.
I love the checklist in part 1, because it highlighted some things even for me that I didn't realize my son needed help with. It helped give my son the language to discuss exactly why he dislikes school so much, rather than just the generic, "I hate school, too much work, too much homework, I hate it!" It was also a revelation to him that OTHER kids have these same issues. Seeing a book targeted so specifically to kids with problems my son has, really hammered home that he is not alone.
The next section of the book is "Things Other People Can Do to Help Me," and this was a pretty weak section of the book, very basic info about the role physicians/medication, counselors, and therapists might have in helping kids with ADHD. I suppose this section's generality makes sense because the book is targeted towards kids.
Part 3 is the meat of the book, with specific strategies kids can use to help themselves get organized and learn to focus. It's all stuff that anyone who reads organizational books already knows (color code, checklists, etc...), but simplified and applied specifically to issues children have. This section also deals with some of the emotional issues some kids have, such as, "Things to Do If I Feel Fidgety", "Learning to Control My Anger", "Learning to Ask for Help", "Problem Solving", etc...
All in all, I highly, highly recommend this book. Parents will probably need to help kids establish some of these routines/procedures, and certainly parents can be helpful in reminding kids of the strategies they are supposed to try to use when they get frustrated/angry.
