5.0 out of 5 stars Wow what a new leash on life!!! March 13 2004
Oh my God what a book. I was shocked to learn that I have many abilites and not disabilites. I now have a positive outlook on ADD. This book has changed my life and I came back to Amazon to order 4 more for some of my freinds that struggle with ADD. I now can have my sons teachers read this and they will finnally understand my sons. I am so moved by this book and if you have ADD or know someone who does you should order this book today. I have read other ADD books but this is HANDS DOWN THE BEST EVER!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars An absolutely great place to start! Jan. 2 2004
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank God--I thought it was just me! June 7 2004
By A Customer
Finally, someone has written a book on this. For the longest I just thought I really had something mentally wrong with me, but after reading this, I don't feel like I'm the only one in the world that can't concentrate on things or that has trouble getting started. If only we (as a society) had known this stuff ten, twenty years ago when a lot of us were in school, we could have been saved a lot of heartache. And saved our parents and teachers a lot of suffering and frustration also. There are a few books out there now even on this and other types of "disorders." One that comes to mind is "The Curious Incident" which is told from the point of view of an autistic teenager. Another is "The Bark of the Dogwood" where the main character either suffers from DID, ADD, BPD, or Aspergers (or any combination thereof). But as far as self-helps, this one takes the cake. The good news is this: We now know what is "wrong" with us. The bad news? We now have to get others to believe it.

There is a lot of good information in here. I like that you can hop, skip and jump around the book to find information. While going through the book, the lightbulb above my head went on several times when I would come across explanations on behaviours that I had no explanation for previously. Wish there was a way I could get everyone I know reading this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars this book saved my sanity, maybe my life Jan. 8 2014
I'm a mother of two, with what seemed like failure everywhere, I indeed thought I was going crazy. This book saved me. It seemed like it was written to me. At last the missing piece of the puzzle.I simply cried with last...answers to all my questions. Better late than never. Thank you ladies.

I'd like to also say how unhelpful Dennis Dodge's comments are, and for a so called intelligent man, I can see no intelligence in your 2 cents worth. Old dogs and new tricks describe his capacity to appreciate this book and the probability that he sits quite comfortably in his 'ivory tower'. Maybe he learnt something from this book, and felt quite uncomfortable with that feeling instead mistaking it for a bowel movement. As this was were his 2 cents worth must of come from. Yuck!

This series of books are what should be taught in school in order to inform at an age when good habits can be taught and learned before we get into debt in the first place!

4.0 out of 5 stars First line of attack! March 19 2012
This book was very helpful in that it was the first book that I read on the subject of Attention Deficit Disorder.
I would recommend it for anyone who has a new diagnosis of ADD/HD or for family and friends who want to support the person diagnosed. The chapter on medication was a bit over my head but it might not be so for everyone. This is a very good first book on the subject.
