There has been a trend for books to talk about the benefits of Adult ADHD, reframing it as an advantage rather than a disease. There is some sense in this. It's good to understand that attention problems, etc., aren't simply a character flaw. But these books don't really help ADHD adults cope.
That's where this book comes in. It's a top-to-bottom, adult ADHD problem-solving system. It's designed to be used in conjunction with a cognitive therapist, but it could be used alone. It's pretty "hardcore" though, with a lot of exercises that require follow-through, so really severe ADHD cases might not be able to do much with it alone.
The workbook focuses on "rewiring" your brain with new habits and thought patterns. These exercises aren't for the faint of heart. Even the simplest ones require some concentration. But the whole point is to build up the attention span, find ways to circumvent the "procrastination reflex," etc.
Doing just some of the work in the book will show real results. But ultimately it's probably best to work this through with a therapist, in order to avoid "quitting" partway through, and adding one more negative notch to your self-esteem belt. (ADHD people are notorious for feeling bad about their ever- increasing "failures" in life.)
So treat yourself right. Grab the book, and start seeing the best ADHD specialist you can find.
P.S.: Anyone with relationship issues that are effected by ADHD should consider The ADHD Marriage Workbook: A User-Friendly Guide to Improving Your Relationship which I recently received for review. It is written by a therapist who has ADHD himself and filled with practical, actionable (ADHD-friendly presentation) for improving any romantic relationship where ADHD is causing issues.
