This book is one of the first, if not the first book written specifically with the ADHD adult in mind. I received a copy of this book as a gift years before I was even diagnosed as being ADHD, and was reluctant to and possibly unable to read it at that time. So this book sat on various shelves for several years, until I was actually diagnosed. When I finally picked it up and began reading it again post diagnosis I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and could not for the life of me recall what had turned me off the book initially. It's another one of those books written for individuals with ADHD by people who work in the field, but also have ADHD themselves. This book begins with the typical what is ADHD (a la intro 101) but moves on to cover more interesting and practical ground. You Mean I'm Not Lazy Crazier Stupid is laid out in an ADHD friendly way that makes locating in retrieving information simple. The book is a mix of case studies, personal stories, useful advice, and lists out a wide variety of treatment options and approaches. If you are already well read on the topic of adult ADHD and are on a tight budget you might want a pass on this one, otherwise it's a good addition to any ADHD adult library. If you are newly diagnosed and are struggling with your ADHD symptoms this book is filled with useful tips and information that can help get you started on the road to better ADHD management. I almost forgot, another great thing about this book is that it's also available as an audio book, for those of you who prefer to listen then to read. I myself have both the hardcover and audiocassette versions of the book, and use them both regularly.
