Use of color, flexibility, and multiple ways of conquering disorganization are explained. Having a "support" person is a tremendous help I found personally, but I did get a good start on my own.
This is the best book I've found on organization period!
Then, perhaps a year ago, I picked up this book and what a transformation. Even the structure of the book is to capitalize on the attention span of those with ADD as each chapter is broken up into short pieces to make its point and then move on to the next one.
Like anyone with ADD, I find that while doing some of the work on my own has been helpful, I definitely need to follow up with some of the "other support people" that the book describes. I might carry through one day or even for a string of days, but can quickly slip back into old, inefficient patterns (that often have been habit forming over a lifetime of being disorganized).
I find that this book is very positive and makes you feel like having ADD can be a strength rather than a weakness.
I hope you find it helpful.
I was pleasantly surprised that the size of the book is larger than many other ADD books and so is the Print itself.
The set up of the book is VERY "ADD Friendly". Main ideas are bulleted and highlighted. There are also review sections at end of each chapter. There are some very useful charts and even some a few pictures of specific organizing tools.
The ideas and suggestion given in this book may be be very helpful to people with ADD. There are some great suggestion that seem too easy to help but as somebody who has used many of them, they do help.
