"This book is a gem and long overdue addition to the ADHD library, written by seasoned clinicians with compassion and good sense. Many books explain ADHD-related concepts. Some offer first-person essays, too. May We Have Your Attention Please? does all that--and in highly readable fashion--but then goes one better. Throughout you find abundant worksheets, thoughtfully designed to help readers sort through their individual experiences of and reactions to this highly variable syndrome. The goal throughout this guide is 'separating myself from my symptoms, ' identifying strengths, and thriving in life. Five stars!"
--Gina Pera, educator, Adult ADHD expert; author of Is It You, Me, or Adult ADD?

"These experienced clinicians share their strategies for building resilience, as patients struggle to find themselves in a way that moves them forward beyond their ADHD. Using characters that reflect the full spectrum of ADHD and worksheets, this book is filled with hope and a patient perspective that encompasses the full range of challenges someone with ADHD may face."
--Dr. Margaret Weiss, MD, PhD, FRCP(C), Department of Psychiatry, Cambridge Health Alliance
"This excellent guide to understanding and managing your ADHD is packed with sensible advice for patients beginning their journey on understanding ADHD. It is written by very experienced clinicians who emphasize managing the everyday challenges that our patients face. It is written in a clear jargon free style and encourages the reader to change outdated negative scripts about themselves and develop collaborative scaffolding relationships to better manage their ADHD challenges. The authors encourage the reader to recognize their strengths as well as their personal challenges with ADHD. The stories of different patient experiences provide good examples of the ways in which our patients can develop a more balanced and integrated view of themselves. The book encourages the reader to see that they are more than their ADHD. This will be a helpful book for anyone beginning to better understand ADHD."
--Dr. Laurence Jerome, MD, Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at The University of Western Ontario
